and Windows 7-based devices in headline and first paragraph
after company corrects)
NEW DELHI Nov 27 Samsung Electronics Co Ltd
will ship 16 million tablets and laptop computers
operating on Microsoft Corp's Windows 8 and Windows 7
operating systems this year, said Jin Park, vice president of
the IT solutions business at Samsung.
Microsoft, the world's largest software company, launched
its new-look, touch-friendly Windows 8 earlier this year to grip
customers' imagination, as it looks to regain ground lost to
Apple Inc and Google Inc in mobile computing
and shake up the moribund PC market.
