What I Like About It

  • The uber sexy keyboard/cover

Is SharePoint 2013 Release Imminent?

I came across a blog post on Bjørn Furuknap’s SharePoint Blog stating that he has now published his final issue in the series “What to Expect from SharePoint 2013”. This has been one of the richest sources of information regarding SharePoint 2013 (SharePoint 15) over recent months. Bjørn is now working on material for post SharePoint 2013 public beta release. Would Bjørn be cutting off his popular (and i guessing profitable) pre-public release series if the public release was not imminent? I don’t think so.

It seems the rumours are now starting to gain credibility have potential release dates are being thrown around.

The latest information circulating is that we will see Microsoft launch (or at least officially announce) the iPad version of Office 2012 at the SharePoint Conference in Las Vegas (November 2012). This timeline has been consistently reported by:
