From what has been released out of Microsoft blogs and other venues, we now know that there will be a release of a Windows 8 Consumer Beta at the end of this month, which will allow IT professionals and others to take a look at what Windows 8 will have to offer come probably the end of the summer, or at the very least by Christmas. Many of users are waiting to see how the Metro UI will work, and how it has been changed since the release of the Developers build of Windows 8 which got a fair amount of negative feedback based on the fact that the Metro UI was at the time better suited for a touch screen device as opposed to the traditional Keyboard/Mouse input combination which most PC users use today. Make sure to keep an eye out for the build if you to want to get a sneak peak at what Windows 8 has to offer.

Since earlier this month, there have been a few different Alpha/Beta ROMs of Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 for the Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch, first starting with FB09, FB15, FB17 and most recently FB21. What we know is that FB15 was a pretty decent build with a few issues, some of which were worked out with the release of FB17. The current issues with FB17 were GPS Related, Kernel Panic Mode, Device Running hot, Battery life Issues, Loss of Signal, and Notification sounds being bugs in the software. As of FB21 which was released to the wild earlier today, most likely will resolve many of these issues, bringing Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 very close to being officially released to E4GT users. The date that has been floating around is March 1, and at the current pace, things look like they may actually be on time.
