Microsoft will finally release the Windows 8 Consumer Preview today on the 29th of February in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress 2012. Apart from the hype and hoopla and all the speculations in the build-up to the release of the Consumer Preview, people also saw a few screenshots that were leaked on the Internet.
The screenshots apparently were of the new Windows Store and had probably been taken from Build 8250, which in all likelihood should be the new Windows 8 Consumer Preview.
Although everything in the screenshots was written in Chinese, the layout of the Windows Store and the apps and games that will be available later did give us an idea about what we can expect from the Beta version that will finally be out by the end of February.
SkyDrive, Microsoft's answer to Apple's iCloud, and Xbox Live games were quite noticeable in the screenshots and many eyes would have lit up on seeing them.
