The main announcement is said to be news of Windows running on ARM chips. Sources are also pointing toward a show-off of Windows 8 for the first time ever.

ARM Chip manufacturers NVIDIA, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments have all signed-up to produce processors for Windows 8 systems. Ballmer is rumored to not refer to Windows 8 - but to "the next version of Windows". Microsoft have also promised a "major revamp" of Windows for slate applications with Windows 8.

Microsoft have recently hit Milestone builds - so not only do we know it's coming, but we know it's coming along very well.
