Ahead of Nokia World, scheduled for September 12
to Bloomberg, Nokia could introduce its first Windows Phone 8 handsets as early as next month, a few weeks earlier than expected.
Nokia is reportedly gearing up to planning to make the announcement ahead of its Nokia World event, scheduled for September 12. However, this does not mean consumers will be able to pick one up in a month or so, as the phones should go on sale before the holiday shopping season.
Analysts have mixed feelings about Nokia and Windows Phone in general. Although some believe that Redmond’s new OS could be a game changer, others are not short on skepticism.
Nokia managed to ship four million Lumia handsets last quarter and although it beat analysts’ expectations, sales are still very slow compared to iOS and Android gear.
