Report: Windows Phone 8 Device Launch To Happen In Early October


Pocketnow reports that Windows Phone 8 devices may be available for consumers as early as October first week. According to the memo from a Microsoft hardware partner that they received, “initial announcement embargo date” of Windows Phone 8 will be on September 30, 2012.

Since the date falls on Sunday, they expect that Windows Phone 8 news will be out from Oct-1st on Monday. As Nokia and HTC are going to reveal their Windows Phone 8 devices before Oct 1st, there is a good possibility of this report to be true.

Early launch of Windows Phone 8 devices will be great for the platform as they will be facing stiff competition from iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 launch this holiday season.
