Nothing is official yet but according to Mary Joe Foley’s own sources Microsoft is set to commercially launch Windows Phone 8 on October 29th just three days after Windows 8. Technically we may have to wait a few more days after the launch event until we start to see the first Windows Phone 8 devices hit retail and carrier stores around the world. Remember that MJ’s sources are often right so October 29th may very well be the real deal.
We can already expect to see the recently announced Samsung ATIV S alongside two Nokia Lumia handsets which are going to be unveiled on September 5th and also HTC devices which should be publicly unveiled pretty soon too.
