Recently a blog DailyMobile.net claimed that Verizon was having problems integrating their remote management software in Windows Phone 8, and this may cause a delay or even cancelation of the roll-out of Windows Phone 8 handsets on one of the largest carriers in USA.
At the time we were sceptical, as we had knowledge directly of a handset in testing that was working perfectly fine.
Now Microsoft watcher and insider Paul Thurrott has weighed in on twitter, and made it perfectly clear that â€œThere is no truth to the Verizon/Windows Phone rumorâ€ calling it â€œComplete BS.â€
Such rumours may of course be maliciously motivated, with companies like Nokia, who are very dependent on a smooth roll-out of Windows Phone 8, being targeted. Hopefully an eventful roll-out in a few weeks will prove everyone wrong.
Thanks screwgoogle for the tip.
