Microsoft developer evangelist says Windows Phone SDK will only arrive after mid-September


We have been burned by Microsoft developer evangelists before, so take this with a large measure of salt.

Walter Novoa, Microsoft employee and Developer Evangelist in Columbia, has posted on his MSDN site that the Windows Phone 8 SDK will not be ready until mid-September.

This will leave developers with only a few weeks between the release of the final SDK and the arrival of Windows Phone 8 handsets on the market.

Of course unlike Windows Phone 7 there is already more than 100,000 apps in Marketplace, making the Windows Phone 8-specific apps less than urgent, but is seems Microsoft is cutting it pretty close for the phone operating system which is meant to save Windows Phone and Nokia.
