Nokia's Israeli distributor first Nokia related person to confirm Windows Phone 8 launch
Israeli publication reported that a European distributor for Nokia has confirmed that Windows Phone 8 OS powered Nokia Lumia handsets will be available by the end of the year. The distributor distributes (what else would a distributor do?) the Nokia line in Israeli and stated that Eurocom Nokia will offer the Nokia Lumia series in Israel once the phones are loaded with Windows Phone 8, which supports Hebrew.

Windows Phone brass obviously are familiar with the Apollo update as Windows Phone manager Joe Belfiore had produced a video that we showed you which was meant to be viewed by Nokia personnel only. Still, those in the know at the Finnish based manufacturer did an admirable job of keeping quiet except for a strange tweet from Nokia Saudi Arabia last month that mentioned that a Windows Phone 8 version of the Nokia Lumia 900 will come to the Middle East. With its disclosure that this variant of the Nokia Lumia 900 would suport Arabic, the tweet seems to dovetail perfectly with the distributor's comment.Windows Phone 8 is expected to bring support for microSD cards, multi-core processors, higher resolution screens and more to phones using Microsoft's mobile OS.
