Samsung Electronics Co Ltd will ship 16 million tablets and laptop computers operating on Microsoft Corp's Windows 8 and Windows 7 operating systems this year, said Jin Park, vice president of the IT solutions business at Samsung.

Microsoft, the world's largest software company, launched its new-look, touch-friendly Windows 8 earlier this year to grip customers' imagination, as it looks to regain ground lost to Apple Inc and Google Inc in mobile computing and shake up the moribund PC market.
