Earlier this morning, we took a gander at a couple of Windows-powered devices from Samsung, where the Samsung ATIV S which runs off the Windows Phone 8 operating system was announced. Well, the phone did not receive an official release date just then, but whispers on the street point towards an October 29th release for Windows Phone 8, at least according to Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet. Foley cited an unnamed (that is always the case, isn’t it?) source, where there was also a bunch of dates that surrounded October 29th that involved Windows Phone 8 as well as Microsoft’s marketing machine.
Four days before that, Microsoft will host a major launch event for Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and the Microsoft Surface RT in New York City. From October 30th to November 2nd, Microsoft’s Build 2012 Conference will happen, and this is the place where software developers congregate and eat, live and breathe the future of Microsoft products, placing a heavy emphasis on Windows Phone 8. Are you looking forward to the end of October?
