Windows Phone 8 SDK could be released September 12th at the Visual Studio 2012 launch
Will the Windows Phone 8 SDK launch at the same time as Visual Studio 2012?
On September 5th, Nokia and Microsoft are expected to introduce two Nokia Lumia smartphones that will run on Windows Phone 8, but it is not known when the phones will be actually launched. When the phones do come to market, there could be some popular apps already to run on the new OS as rumors persist that VIP developers have already received special models of a Windows Phone 8 device. Other developers will need to wait for the release of the SDK for Windows Phone 8 which might be just a few weeks away.
