CES 2010 BlockRUMOUR MILL: A big tablet announcement by Microsoft and HP? That is what the New York Times is reporting on the eve of Microsoft’s big Keynote that happens in CES 2010. Sources tell them that the tablet will be made by HP and could be out during the middle of 2010; and most likely would be a multimedia packed tablet with an e-reader and multitouch functions. However, is this Apple envy? Because Apple is said to be releasing a tablet sometime in the month as well. Will this spark a tablet war?

All will be revealed when the keynote actually happens. Don’t worry, will have live coverage of the Microsoft Keynote – 1:30PM tomorrow. You can follow the coverage on our Twitter
