Windows Phone 7 to be launched late August?

Windows Phone 7 to be launched in August? We have seen a strange game of dates with Windows Phone 7, with the launch date receding on some days, and on others advancing to frankly unbelievable dates on others.

The latest rumour, via Neowin, is that Microsoft will be holding a launch event in Australia for Windows Phone 7 at the end of August.  Now I know that Australia is ahead of us in time, but probably not by a whole month earlier that the earliest date we have heard so far, the end of September 2010.

On the other hand, a launch date does not necessarily mean devices will be made available, much like the launch of Windows Mobile 6.5 only saw devices arriving on market much later, which does lend some credence to an August date.

Will we see an official announcement by Microsoft soon? Let us know your thoughts below.
