He also said Microsoft has been working with its partners to ensure that products which meet Windows 8’s demands will be out soon.
“Partners are working hard to bring stunning innovation to market across a broad spectrum of tablets, convertibles, touch laptops and ultrabooks and all-in-one PCs,” he said. “Watch out for some great new products on the shelf this spring.”
