Steve Ballmer has an 80-inch Windows 8 tablet in his office ? will you have one, too?

Microsoft has said for a while that it will be offering Windows 8 on everything from tablets to giant screens, and the point was driven home this week when reported that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has an 80-inch Windows 8 tablet on the wall in his office.

The company expects to see hardware makers sell similar wall-mounted Windows 8 tablet computers for use in office, Microsoft?s communications chief Frank Shaw confirms.

Microsoft showed a similar screen at the Windows 8 Consumer Preview event, above, so the plan isn?t a major surprise, but it?s notable that Ballmer is already using one of them in his office ? a sign that these could get a serious push for use in businesses.

To be clear, this is not a Microsoft Surface computer, but rather a traditional tablet in giant form.

No word on possible pricing or availability.

Literally putting a computer on a wall won?t be the only solution long term. One of the projects being developed by a startup inside Microsoft?s Kinect Accelerator program uses the Kinect Sensor for Windows to turn a projected screen into a touch screen, as well. See our recent tour for more.
