Microsoft will launch the successor of its Windows PC operating system next year, the company’s chief has revealed.

Steve Ballmer said at a press conference in Tokyo that the new operating system would be optimised for tablet devices, PCs and “a variety of different form factors”.

Elsewhere in his speech, Ballmer referred to the next version of Windows as ‘Windows 8’ – a rumour that Microsoft PR has been keen to suffocate.
