Public Preview of Windows 8.1 will be available on June 26th

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a date for the release!

Windows 8.1 is scheduled to be released to the public on June the 26th, 2013.

The news came in the form of a blog post update from the Windows Blog.

Here’s what it said:

Today, there are more devices – and choice – allowing you to pick the right Windows 8 device that meets your needs. Windows 8 provides a great experience for consuming and creating content, for both work and play and on the go. And you’ll immediately benefit from continual updates – whether it’s from app updates through the Windows Store, performance updates through Windows Update or the Windows 8.1 update later this year.

We have much more to share about Windows 8.1 in the coming weeks. We will also be making a public preview of Windows 8.1 available starting on June 26, timed with the Build developer conference in San Francisco. The preview will be available for Windows 8 and Windows RT.

Christmas has come early this year…
