It would be the tablet “Centaurus”, which Windows Central said in December that the release was scheduled for this fall. The fact that a wide circle of employees has been invited to the show — to the point of creating long waiting lines, adds The Verge — guess the launch is not that far away.

This tablet with two screens that close like a book, would use “Windows Lite“. In the past there have been two rumors around a device using such a configuration : one nicknamed “Andromeda” with the dimensions of a smartphone, the other named “Centaurus” with a larger size. It is this second option that today would be the priority for Microsoft.
