    We’re now hearing some new rumors that are citing completely different dates from what we’ve heard in the past. These are the first set of rumors to not agree with the previous roadmaps leaked, including various reputable sources.

    According to Businessweek’s sources, public testing of the next Windows will begin at the end of the year. As well, we will not be seeing a tablet until around June 2012:

    Windows 7 Beta was leaked a week and a half before the public beta was released. Windows 7 Release Candidate was released roughly five months later.

    Update: Morgan Stanley’s bluepaper on Tablet Demand and Disruption displayed the following roadmap, showing a Windows 8 release date for tablets in first half of 2012.
