The Windows Embedded team mentioned in passing this week that it will be delivering a Blue update to the Windows Embedded operating system. In a May 7 blog post, the team noted: "With Windows Blue, we are furthering our platform alignment with Windows to address a growing category of devices on the edge of enterprise networks and will be bringing the update to market later this year."


Right now, the Embedded team isn't share specific SKU details or any other information. (There are several Windows Embedded 8 SKUs available currently.) But Embedded is "aligning with the Windows release schedule," a spokesperson confirmed to me.

Microsoft's official pronouncement on Windows Blue is that it will be out by holiday 2013. My sources say Windows Blue is on track to RTM by August 2013 or so. So I'd say expect Windows Embedded Blue some time this fall.
