AT&T may show its 4G LTE based Windows 8 Tablet next week at its developer conference and CES. We all know that Microsoft and its partners will showcase Windows 8 based PC’s and tablets, but AT&T joining the crowd is an exciting thing. The info was revealed from the AT&T developer conference session (thanks to mobiletechworld) on building Windows 8 apps. Along with AT&T, Qualcomm is also joining the session as the tablet will be powered by Qualcomm based ARM processor.

Attend this session and see how to transform the higher speed and lower latency of LTE into an amazing user experience. First, learn from Qualcomm about the power of their Snapdragon chip, and how developers can tap into the Snapdragon Developer Program to create rich Windows 8 apps that help deliver differentiated consumer experiences that capitalize on LTE’s potential. Then see how the intuitive elegance of Windows 8′s Metro-style application design has been layered over this horsepower. Finally, hear how standalone applications can be transformed on this powerful platform, converting independent programs into streamlined, integrated live tiles. Opportunities abound in this session for developers of connected apps; discover how AT&T and Microsoft are working to make developing connected applications easier.
I predict they may show atleast a prototype of their Windows 8 tablet next week.
