KDE Packages for the first KDE 4 developers snapshot "Krash" have started appearing. Most exciting is packages for a whole new platform, Mac OS X. More details are on Benjamin Reed's blog. For the traditionalists packages are available from openSUSE and Kubuntu. If you are a KDE application developer, this is the easiest way to start porting your application to KDE 4. Meanwhile work is continuing on KDE on Windows where developers have successfully got all of kdelibs compiling. Finally the KDE Women project has a new tutorial to get you started in KDE4 development.

Does that mean you can run KDE4 under Windows. And if so could you run KDE and then also native Windows Applications like Outlook etc. .... if so that would be great, i could run KDE at work.

No, the other way around. You will be able to run ported KDE4 applications on the windows desktop. AFAIK there are no plans to replace the graphical windows desktop itself with KDE.

But of course you will be able to run windows apps and the ported KDE4 apps in parallel.

The last I heard, and that was a while ago, they had decided not to provide the desktop for Windows. Only applications. I think you can run the whole thing through Cygwin already, though, if you really wanted to.
