AT&T to unveil 4G-enabled Windows 8 tablets

A Snapdragon LTE tablet running Windows 8 may be launching under America's second largest cellular network later this year

The next iteration of Windows is right around the corner and tablets sporting the operating system will now officially make an appearance at CES this year.

AT&T has announced that a 4G LTE tablet for its network will make a public showing at Las Vegas next week. The tablet will run Windows 8 as well as the Metro-style UI demonstrated at IDF 2011. The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, but details such as RAM, screen size, connectivity features, cost and availability will all hopefully be unveiled within the next few days.

If Windows 8 tablets sporting Intel Atom CPUs make an appearance as well, it would certainly be interesting to compare any performance differences with the ARM-based AT&T tablet.

Notebookcheck will be on-site in Las Vegas this coming week, so expect an inundation of new announcements, products and hopefully surprises beginning Monday.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
