Windows 8 Launches in India

This my friend,is how your future computer screen will look like.

Windows 8 comes with a new smooth and intuitive start screen and tiles that are brimming with content and update in real time. With this launch, the Windows store is now open and a plethora of global and local apps will be available for download.

“The hardware requirements that are needed to run Windows 8 are equal or less than the requirements needed to run Windows 7. So we believe that a vast majority of people that are using Windows 8, would absolutely be able to use Windows 8 on their current device.” says Amrish Goyal, director of Windows Business Group.

To get an idea about just how much of a change this is going to be from the classic desktop, you can check out this consumer preview demo which was released in March this year.

If you have bought a PC or if you buy a PC between June 2nd 2012 and January 31st 2012, you can upgrade your existing device, from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro, for INR 699. If you have a device you have bought before Jun 2nd, you can upgrade Windows XP/Vista/7 to Windows 8 Pro for INR 1,999. Upgrade offer is available here.
