Rumor: Verizon might delay launch of Windows Phone 8 smartphones
Yet according to an anonymous tipster for DailyMobile, Verizon might be having troubles launching Windows Phone 8 smartphones on schedule. In fact, the matter is so serious that the carrier's upcoming WP8 devices might be cancelled, unless a solution to the problem is found. What could that problem be, you ask? Well, the tipster says that it is all because of Verizon's device management system. The carrier must have remote access to the smartphones on its network for certain purposes, but WP8 in its current state does not allow that. What makes matters worse is that Microsoft is allegedly unwilling to cooperate, and unless it does provide the access required by Verizon, Windows Phone 8 handsets will not be launched by the carrier.
Of course, the above is just a rumor and should be treated as such – with the usual pinch of salt. In case we have an update on the matter, rest assured that we'll give you the goods as soon as we get them.
