Stephen Elop suggests an October release for Windows Phone 8


Speaking to the New York Times, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop let it slip that the upcoming successor to Windows Phone 7, namely WP8, will be coming in October of this year.

This would make perfect sense because of the imminent October 26 release of Windows 8, so it’s within the realm of possibility that there could be a simultaneous launch of both operating systems.

Elop did not go on to confirm that the launch would coincide with the release of new WP8 devices, despite the fact that he was was discussing Nokia’s Q2 earnings when he said that WP8 would further lift sales of Lumia devices.
