New Windows 9 details leak, will launch next year and arrive with improved touch support

| |

While we're still waiting for solid information about Windows Blue, new info about the next major release of Windows is already surfacing. Today, a report from Win8China is claiming that Windows 9 is set to launch in November 2014, with a public beta starting in January 2014. It all seems to be moving a bit quickly.

Windows 9 will include an RTM version of IE11 too. While we've also seen IE11 on Windows Blue, it appears Blue will ship with a beta build of the software and not the final version. Windows Blue will adopt the final version however, just like Windows 7 has with IE10.

Microsoft might also be developing a mobile version of Windows 9, which sounds interesting. How will a mobile version of Windows 9 differ from the full version? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Update: It appears the original source link has since been pulled. This raises some questions about the authenticity of the leak. Of course, take this rumour with a grain of salt, as it could be false.
