Windows 8 Beta Releasing In September ?

The month of September will surely have a lot of surprises for us. Almost every tech blog on the world wide web has already reported about the iPhone 5 releasing in September. Now, we have come to know that Microsoft is planning to launch Windows 8 Beta version in the month of September.

Microsoft is planning to launch a beta build and not a beta preview. This rumor gets support from the fact that Microsoft’s build conference will be held in mid September. It will be the best time to release its beta build.

Windows 8 will focus on touch computing mostly but the traditional computing, i.e with keyboard and mouse will also be supported.

Unlike earlier versions of Windows OS, Windows 8 will be app friendly and a user will be able to customize it the way he wants. Furthermore, according to Microsoft, Windows 8 will revolutionize the way Operating Systems work and its interface will give users the best computing experience they have ever had.

There are also rumors in the tech world that Windows 8 will be deployed in tablets because of its touch interface. If such claims are believed, Microsoft’s market share in tablets, which is close to zero right now, will increase a lot.

Are you guys ready for the Microsoft’s touch OS?

BlackBerry All Set For The iPhone Challenge

RIM(Research In Motion) will be releasing 5 brand new phones including its first ever all-touch screen phone within weeks. RIM has taken more than a year to release its new models and is expecting that this move will bring back its lost reputation.

These phones will be available on more than 200 carriers worldwide and are meant to increase RIM’s market share. Though this is a good news for BlackBerry lovers, these phones are not expected to generate a lot of success for the company.

The Canada based company is currently facing its worst time in the smartphone market. Recently it fired nearly 2000 of its employees in order to provide financial stabilization to the company.

RIM’s stock has fallen upto 68% and it is not expected to rise quickly. A lot of reasons are responsible for RIM’s failure but the delay in launching new phones is the major one.

Apple is going to launch the iPhone 5 in this fall and a lot of Android phones will be rolling around that period too. RIM will face a tough challenge from the world’s leading manufacturers in near future.

No detailed specifications were available till this post was written. We’ll keep you updated.
