Android and Apple are ruling the tablet market right now. Microsoft gain the PC market after the success of Windows 7 and looks like its doing really great with Windows Phone 7 too.

But looks like Microsoft is planning to give a touch fight to Apple and Google in the tablet market soon. According to Bloomberg sources, Microsoft this week will be previewing a version of Windows that is optimized for tablet devices.

Bloomberg believes that Windows President Steven Sinofsky will be giving the demo at All Things D, while Vice President Steve Guggenheimer will handle the show at Computex.

On the hardware side, Nvidia was chosen as the platform's chipmaker, who has been making inroads on the tablet market with its Tegra 2 chipset.
