We still have 3 more days before the end of the month and the end of the first half of the year, June 2012 has become one heck of a month at least for the Tech world. Aside from the merger rumors, acquisition news, product release and security breaches, June 2012 become a month full of product announcements, keynotes and conferences.
But the newsiest week started when Apple held their WWDC 2012 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, there they announced the refreshed Macbook Pro, Macbook Air and the “next” generation Mabook Pro with Retina display, which more or less other manufacturer will follow suit, they also announced and demoed the next version of Mac OS X (Mountain Lion), iOS 6 and a bunch of stats regarding the Apple App Store, iOS market share and Mac OS X (Mountain Lion).
Then there’s the two Microsoft keynotes; first the supposedly “surprise” announcement regarding the upcoming Microsoft Surface, a tablet that was designed, created and manufactured by Microsoft, the after a few days the unveiling of the Windows Phone 8; its new features, services, partner manufacturers and something for developers.
Now before we end the month, Google will be holding not one but two keynotes (Google I/O); one will be later today Wednesday, June 27 at 12:30pm ET (9:30am PT) then on Thursday, June 28 at 1pm ET (10am PT). Google is expected to unveil the rumored Google branded tablet, unveil and demo the next version of Android OS (Jelly Beans) and will probably announce few surprises like new or improved Google (cloud) service and something for developers to drool about. Another intriguing fact about this year’s Google I/O is that it’ll be held at Moscone Center in San Francisco; the very same venue where Apple held their WWDC 2012 two weeks ago.
So here’s looking forward to next month and the rest of the year 2012!
