Bloomberg: Nokia Windows Phone 8 smartphones coming at Nokia World

Bloomberg: Nokia Windows Phone 8 smartphones coming at Nokia World
Nokia will announce new Windows Phone 8 smartphones at Nokia World. That’s no huge surprise (no one expected the Finns would announce anything else), but a confirmation from Bloomberg now adds more certainty that the Finns are right on track and despite fragmenting Nokia World, we’ll still see some major announcements at the event that starts September 5th.

What’s more interesting, though, is that the new Nokia Windows Phone 8 devices will end up on retail shelves for the Holiday season. We don’t know whether this means they’d arrive at that time, or be available for earlier, but it’s good to see that Nokia won’t miss such a huge sales opportunity.

So far, we do know that Microsoft is releasing Windows 8 (the tablet and notebook operating system) on October 26th, so hopes are that the first Nokia devices with the new operating system for phones will arrive then as well.

Overall, while we’re looking at the usual slow August, things will pick up really quickly in a couple of weeks and get really red hot at the beginning of September with a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, a possible new iPhone and now Nokia devices. What else could you wish for?

Already have one. U know that if WP8 flops, then nokia fails. And with all the recent leaks of WP8, it would even patch up all the missing features that we symbian users are used to. So i am down for buying a WP8 nokia phone.

What else could i wish for??"... An awesome nexus device that is 10 times better than the iphone, (which will still have an embarrassingly tiny screen), and a trade in price that is irresistible!

800/900 design with higher resolution screens, slightly thinner, and a more robust CPU and RAM combo (for the added capabilities of WP8), and a world-beater camera setup would be just fine. More color options, too

Let's hope that Windows/Nokia can really pull it off this time and get some traction. I love my Lumia.

I guess someone missed out the fact that the resources to purchase the devices don't really grow on trees.

Bring this horse to market, Microsoft and Nokia!! It is time to unleash and attack. Get out WP 8, and release models every month. Different form factors, GSM/CDMA, qwerty style, Phablet style, smaller than 4", give some choices. Basically, by the middle of 2013 become the Samsung of WP 8 and support your devices as well as you have your WP 7 phones. Turn around your fortunes and bring WP 8 along for the ride. And make good on your word to support the WP 7 Lumia's for 18 months. Help people buy with confidence. Hopefully, Samsung, HTC, and other WP manufacturers will respond with support and options on their WP lineups. Which will make RIM step up their efforts when releasing BB10, which will hopefully cut a little into Android and iPhone sales forcing Google and Apple to step up their games (especially Apple- come on guys, you are starting to rest on your established market.) Ah, choice and competition....

Can't wait for Nokia World on Sept 5! HTC has already leaked that they'll put out 2 dual-core WP8 devices this year, a high-end model with a high res screen and mid-range one with a 480x800 screen. But they'll reserve their WP8 flagship for next year: a quad-core device!

And Sammy has at least 2 devices- a high end dual-core with the same screen as their GS3, and a mid-range model. Also, the rumors of a Note for WP are still swirling. Could be a great year for WP 8....
