Windows Phone 8 Lumia expected to launch in September
We have heard a lot about Windows 8 and now, we are hearing about Windows Phone 8....the new Windows Phone 8 Lumia is expected to be launched in September.
And apparently, we may get our first glimpse at a new Nokia Lumia smartphone powered by Windows Phone 8 software in just three weeks. The purported Lumia launch would be one week before Apple is expected to launch the next iPhone. Nokia chief Stephen Elop recently said that a new Windows 8 smartphone would debut in the “relatively near term,” but fell short of confirming or denying a new Lumia was coming in early September, according to Reuters.
The phone maker is scheduled to hold a Nokia World event Sept. 5 and 6 in Helsinki focused primarily on the company’s "operator and retail partners.” The event would be a perfect time to unveil a new Lumia lineup to get its business partners interested in upcoming devices and plan strategies for pushing the phones at the retail level. Bloomberg in early August first reported that Nokia planned to unveil new Windows Phone 8 handsets during Nokia World.
