The latest buzz about the early opening of the Mac App Store has suggested an early opening date of December 13th. AppleTell initially reported this date a few days ago.
The company apparently told developers to have their software prepared for a launch as early as Monday the 6th of this month… Apple has made no official announcements regarding this, and delays could always happen, but there’s a push to be launched before Christmas, well ahead of the previously estimated January release.
They have just heard from their sources that this early date will not be seen. Due to numerous unnamed issues the Mac App Store opening date has been pushed back to its original January timeframe. The only reason for the change in their optimistic schedule is that Apple is “disappointed” with the current progress.
The recent developer release of Mac OSX 10.6.6 GM has kept the Apple community on edge in anticipation for an early release, especially with the frequently changing rumors regarding the Mac App Store’s grand debut.
