Save the Date! For Windows Phone 8 on October 29th
If you are like me and you love Windows Phone, then you are excited
about the next version (Windows Phone 8). If you are like me and you
love to develop for Windows Phone, then you are excited about the next
version. When is the next version coming?
Well, here’s what I am hearing ‘round the net:
Microsoft today sent out a "save the date" for Oct. 29, when it will
formally unveil its Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system.
ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley first reported on a possible Oct. 29 launch date
for the next generation of Microsoft's smartphone operating system in late August. Microsoft confirmed the date on Thursday when it sent invitationsto various press outlets to "Meet Windows Phone 8."
Microsoft is sending out invites for a Windows Phone 8 launch event on
October 29, to be held at 10 AM PST. The phone platform was shown off
on stage during a joint event with Nokia, and also during another with HTC in September, but Microsoft is saying we’ll see more at its own show.
