Windows Phone 8Yesterday we wrote about a rumor stating that Windows Phone 8 devices would only be hitting the market in November, however it turns out that the rumor could be wrong after all. At Nokia’s financial results call yesterday, the company’s CEO, Stephen Elop, mentioned that Windows Phone 8 would be released in October – though it wasn’t mentioned whether it would be on the same date as Windows 8’s release for PCs and tablets.

There was no mention if Nokia will be the first to bring Windows Phone 8 smartphones to the market, but there’s likely chance they will since they’ve got pretty strong ties with Microsoft, not to mention the company gave up on other mobile platforms to fully support Windows Phone. Nokia is really depending on Windows Phone to pull them out of the slump they’ve been in and their Q2 financial report suggests that it’s working, however – Nokia will need to do something about the declining sales of its non-WP devices.
