Samsung Moves to Expand Tablet Business With Microsoft
Samsung Electronics Co. is preparing to expand its tablet-computer lineup by using a new version of Microsoft Corp.’s Windows software as the South Korean company’s products built around Google Inc.’s Android operating system come under legal attack from Apple Inc.
The move is expected to be announced at a Microsoft developers conference in California next week, people familiar with Samsung’s plans said. Representatives of Samsung and Microsoft in South Korea declined to comment. The development was reported earlier by the Korea Economic Daily newspaper.
