It's coming up to the peak season for new product launches, and grabbing a lot of attention this year is sure to be the latest generation of tablets based around the Windows 8 operating system.
And realising how important ecommerce using mobile devices is becoming to its business, eBay will be quick off the mark in releasing an app for tech-fiends who want the latest Microsoft technology.
According to 3G.co.uk, the next eBay app has been fully optimised for use on the latest tablet devices with large touch-screens.
For instance, it notes, a number of navigation tasks have been made capable of being used by simply swiping the device's screen.
It's also claimed that the latest app's intuitive navigation enables users to list an item for sale in under a minute.
Microsoft and Samsung are expected to be among the first out of the blocks with Windows 8 tablets, and these are expected to break cover this month.
