Windows 8 Public Beta officially coming in February

By on

Yesterday Microsoft delivered the goods in regards to Windows 8 with news of their Application Store named Windows Store, coming in February. They also quietly announced a Public Beta for Windows 8.

The Public Beta will come in February 2012 and after the Windows Developer Preview’s three million downloads, it looks like the Public Beta will be just as, if not more, popular. With a Beta coming so early into 2012 it looks like Microsoft has plans to release the tablet-friendly update in late 2012.

We might also see some more details of a release date at Microsoft’s CES keynote, which will be covering thorougly with live video and up-to-the minute coverage in January.
