Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) served up some interesting Windows 8, Windows Azure and Windows Intune chatter this week during TechEd North America in Orlando, Fla. But the company will likely serve up bigger news at Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2012 (July 8-12, Toronto).
When it comes to Windows tablets, is Microsoft taking control of its hardware destiny? That’s the chatter floating around the web — suggesting that Microsoft has manufactured a Windows RT tablet. If true here’s the potential impact for Microsoft’s channel and hardware partners.
Windows RT is designed for ARM processors.
There’s been so much buzz about Microsoft Windows 8, but so very little mentioned about the official release date — until now. It looks as though Windows 8 will be ready by the summer of 2012, just in time for an October release date. Here are the quick details …
Microsoft apparently is gearing up to ship Windows 8 in October, with both Intel and ARM variants in tow.
Remember the hype over the invitation to Microsoft’s Windows 8 Consumer Preview? Microsoft has finally unleashed the beast at Mobile World Congress 2012. But what’s so different from this preview vs. the Windows 8 developer preview in September 2011?
Microsoft will be releasing an initial public preview release of Windows Blue, its next-generation desktop operating system, at its annual Build developer conference in late June, according to a new report from The Verge’s Tom Warren.
Microsoft will finally launch a preview of Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 7 in mid-November, the company announced today. With the Windows 8 launch less than two weeks away, Microsoft has obviously been focusing on the release of Internet Explorer 10 for its new operating system lately.
Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) has sold 60 million Windows 8 licenses, but a true reality check for the touch-enabled operating system will arrive once PC makers — Dell (NASDAQ: DELL), HP (NYSE: HPQ) and Lenovo (HKSE: 992.hk) — announce quarterly earnings. And for Microsoft’s deeper thoughts on Windows 8 sales, circle January 24, 2013 on your calendar.
