This demonstration will reportedly happen as early as next week, though the question of when it will actually arrive in stores is anybody's guess. (Remember, Ballmer and even Bill Gates have been faithfully demoing tablet versions of Windows at various events since 2002, all of which have either failed to materialize or had so little impact on the industry that they may as well have failed to materialize.)
