The highly touted Windows 8 OS is still scheduled to ship this year, although an exact official date is still in the air.
But, according to Pocket-lint.com, director of PR of Windows Janelle Poole hinted to the website that the successor to Windows 7 may be currently set for an October launch.
“One of the things I think is a good guideline though is we’ve always said that Windows releases come round about every three years and this year will be three years in October since we launched Windows 7,” said Poole to Pocket-lint. “So I think that’s a good guideline to consider.”
If true, an October launch would fall in line with previous rumors of Windows 8 tablets looking to launch Q3 to Q4 of this year.
Microsoft has demonstrated features of Windows 8 on prototype tablets in 2011 and this year again at CES, including the Metro-style UI and developer-friendly features. There are already plans to equip Ultrabooks with Windows 8, such as the recently unveiled Lenovo Yoga.
