Windows 8 x86 launch in Q4 2012, ARM in Q2 2013?

Posted on Wednesday, February 29 2012 @ 15:51:42 CET by

Bright Side of News claims the x86 edition of Windows 8 will be released in the final quarter of this year, while devices with the ARM version of Windows 8 aren't expected to hit retail shelves until May-June 2013. .
Well, brace for impact. According to several sources we have spoken to, including highly ranked executives close to the heart of the matter, Windows 8 for x86 processors will only come out in the fourth quarter of this year. Furthermore, Windows-On-ARM will only debut in 12 months from now, at the Mobile World Congress 2013 with the availability coming at the end of second quarter, i.e. May-June timeframe.

This information is something Microsoft does not want to share around and the company is keeping the arousal factor high on a premise that Windows 8 will ship soon. In a couple of days, the company will release Windows 8 Consumer Preview, but this is not the only publically planned version of Windows. We heard the company is debating two options - to give 180 days trial version and then a 90 day extension when the summer ends, or release a 365-day version, giving you plenty of time to enjoy Windows for free.
