We are really not sure, what exactly were you told in NAB but our latest Premiere Pro Cs6 & After Effects CS6 will give a different experience altogether.
Here you go, you can check it yourself.
Sounds to me like you may have read this backwards :-) . I have been testing the Premiere CS6 and there are something between it and Speed Grade that call my attention a lot. I am interested in starting to work more with these programs. I have tested Premiere CS6 and like it but has fallen a little short, therefore I want to start using the new versions discussed at NAB. I was not personally there, one of my producers was, and she did not get a release date.
We are leaving to Europe and Africa in 2 weeks and would have loved to be able to take the software with us on a laptop as we will be editing as we shoot. In order to do this, we need to be able to have worked with it a few days so we feel a bit comfortable with it.
So my question was simple, when will it be available?
Seems like it a specific question in regards to Video products like PPro. So, i have moved the discussion to Premiere Pro Forum as the users/employees here will be able to answer to that product specific query of yours.

We all do. But no official release date has yet been announced.
Well nobody can tell you that but Adobe.
Adobe wont reveal the date until just before its going to be shipped.
I will speculate based on history that it will be sometime in May
Thanks everyone. Too bad we'll be overseas by then with low internet connections.
Perhaps you could capture and get ready to edit in CS6 while you wait for Premiere Pro Next. Just cutting and rearranging clips but without color grading and all of the fancy work that can usually wait. Then when you come back it might be ready.
What are you having trouble with in CS6? Is it something you can overlook until the "real" editing is ready to start? Is it something we can help you with by providing a different method or work flow. It is not a 100% one for one move from FCP to Premiere Pro. Perhaps you just missed something? Or perhaps you were doing things that really don't need to be done in the field?
Just trying to be helpful.
Thanks Steven. I am not necessarily finding issues on CS6 that I would not find elsewhere other than it seems that plugins are much less in CS6 than FCP. I started on Premiere years back, moved to FCP7 and then somewhat twisted my hand into X. Now want back to a normal editing suite and since I use CS for many other tasks, it seemed simple.
My current issue is that we are going out of the country to shoot a series of commercials which will go live within 48 hours of being shot. I have an editor assembling as cards get to her hands. But there are some parts that she won't be able to be in due to limitations and then is when I wanted the new CS6 in my laptop so I could get it ready to go live the morning after if need be.
But there is always a next time, I seem to be sticking back with Premiere. Hate the fact that now have to edit sound in Audition, used to love Soundbooth. Just something else to get used to . I don't have the need to learn ProTools, I leave that to the audio pros, but do miss SB.
Thanks again for the help offer.

I almost laughed out loud at that. I was so annoyed when they took Audition out of the suite and put in Soundbooth. Now Audition is back as part of the suite and I am happy. Of course, being a Creative Cloud user, I have every program Adobe writes, so if Soundbooth came back it would be OK.

I didn't mind Soundbooth, but as a long-time Audition user it seemed pretty limited. I like the new course that Adobe is taking with building enough audio capabilities into Premiere that many projects won't even need to use a separate audio program. I'm waiting for the day that I can mix and edit a live concert without ever leaving Premiere!!!
