Big news from Windows today! Have you heard?
WINDOWS 8 IS FINALLY HERE!
Starting today, Windows 8 will be available for purchase in more than 140 markets and 37 languages in two primary versions—Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro, as well as Windows 8 Enterprise for large organizations.
Beginning Friday, Oct. 26, consumers and businesses worldwide will be able to experience all that Windows 8 has to offer, including a beautiful new user interface and a wide range of applications with the grand opening of the Windows Store. As a result of close work with hardware partners, more than 1,000 certified PCs and tablets, including Microsoft Surface, will be available for the launch of Windows 8 — making it the best lineup of PCs ever across the Windows 8 and Windows RT ecosystem.
“We have reimagined Windows and the result is a stunning lineup of new PCs,” said Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. “Windows 8 brings together the best of the PC and the tablet. It works perfect for work and play and it is alive with your world. Every one of our customers will find a PC that they will absolutely love.”
If you are among the few that just can’t wait to upgrade the good news is Microsoft is inviting everyone to join the celebration at a retail store near you today to see the latest Windows 8 devices in person!
Speaking of devices, you may have heard that Windows also just launched the new Surface today! I have to tell you this device is sleek, skinny, and stunning.
I WANT IT! (Hello Christmas List!)
However, if you are a bit nervous about upgrading and learning a new operating system (My hubs always is…), The Microsoft retail stores are offering ongoing free drop-in Windows 8 training sessions at their stores, so customers can get the most of their new Windows 8 device. No headaches, this is a great way to see just exactly what Windows 8 can do for you!
Just so you know, the upgrade only runs $39.99 for current Windows Vista, XP, or 7 users. You can also find some great update options no matter what your needs are on the Windows 8 site.
Are you planning on upgrading? Why or Why Not? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
