Apple has stated that OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 will be launched in July, although they were rather vague when it came to a specific date which we presume was subject to change depending on how well the preview went. However the folks at 9to5 Mac are claiming to have heard whispers that Apple Stores in both the US and overseas are planning overnight shifts for Tuesday, the 24th of July, leading them to speculate that this could lead to a public launch on the 25th of July. Given that the golden master release of OS X Mountain Lion was released last week, it’s not a stretch of the imagination to think that the 25th of July could very well be the public release date (although rumors have also suggested at 19th of July release). The upgrade will cost $19.99 and will be available for purchase via the Mac App Store on launch day itself. So, anyone looking forward to OS X Mountain Lion?
