Microsoft is expected to unveil a tablet computer Monday.

The company invited media to an afternoon event tomorrow in Los Angeles but will only say it is making a major announcement.

The exact location of the announcement isn't being revealed until Monday.

Sources say Microsoft will launch its own tablet operating on its new windows eight system in an effort to compete with Apple's super hot iPad.

The new operating system will work across laptop computers, tablets and televisions.
