Windows Phone 9 Preview Release Date Set For January 2015
If all goes well, we might have both the desktop and mobile platforms launching close to each other. Windows Phone 9 Preview releases date has reportedly been set at the very start of next year.
January 2015 is the estimate that is now being thrown around.
According to this story, Microsoft is currently working on Windows Phone 9 along with a couple of updates for Windows Phone 8 users, and a preview build of the new mobile OS is on track for release early next year — as a free download, of course.
Microsoft, it is said, plans to stick to the same tried and tested strategy of giving users a chance to try out new versions of its mobile OS a few months before the public rollout.
It is not yet clear whether the company aims to launch both Windows 9 and Windows Phone 9 at the exact same time, but chances are that this is the strategy the company is following. A lot can happen during development, though, and a parallel launch might not happen.
Either platforms being delayed by a few months here and there, wouldn’t surprise anybody.
However, the full details should be with us come September 30, at the San Francisco event that the software titan has officially announced just now.
