IE9 is Launching Either March 14 or March 24

A rogue tweet from the official MSDN India Twitter account has apparently let the cat out of the bag in regards to the release date for the much-anticipated IE9. Though it’s since been deleted, Pocket-Lint reports that the tweet stated the launch would take place during Tech.Ed in Bangalore, India, which is scheduled for March 23-25. Conveniently, Brian Hall, GM of Internet Explorer And Windows Live, is set to give a March 24 keynote speech.

However, if another rumor is to be believed, we may not even have to wait until March 24. Download Squad cites its own sources that say Microsoft will release the final version of Internet Explorer 9 at the SXSW conference on March 14. Equally as telling as the fact that IE boss Brian Hall is giving a keynote speech at Tech.Ed, Microsoft has an IE party scheduled for March 14. The official occasion is to “Celebrate the Beauty of the Web” but that seems a little wishy-washy to us. Celebrating something bigger, Microsoft?
