    Has there been an announcement for the Windows 8 beta 1 release date? As the developer preview has come out already, can we expect beta 1 to follow later on this year?

    Would be interested to know if there is any news on this, or at least a good guess!

    No official date, but later this year is as good a guess as any.

    Since WDP is time bombed my gut tells me they will have beta out a bit before it explodes so I am thinking sometime in January.

    According to some sources, Windows 8 is scheduled to go into Beta during CES 2012, followed by the release candidate around April. If everything goes as expected, it’ll go RTM somewhere in June and retail around August 2012.
