    Mark your Microsoft calendars: Windows Phone 8 launch dates revealed


    Expect September to be a month of Windows Phone 8 handset reveals, and late October to be the official launch of the coming devices.

    We Microsoft watchers already knew October was going to be a crazy month, given Windows 8's general availability date is October 26.

    But until this week, I didn't realize just how jam-packed that month is really going to be.

    A source of mine privy to Microsoft's event plans, who asked not to be named, just shared with me dates and tentative locations for a number of Microsoft's upcoming launches. Some of these we suspected; a few we knew.

    Windows Phone 8's build-up to launch started today, August 29, with Samsung showing off what's officially the first Windows Phone 8 device (but offering no pricing or availability details). September 5, Nokia is expected to show off some of its planned Windows Phone 8 devices, with AT&T rumored to be the lead carrier for them. And HTC is expected to be next out of the gate with Windows Phone 8 handset(s) -- around mid-September, I hear.

    But October -- specifically late October -- is when things really ramp up.

    LOL! I'm just as excited as you, Cokie! Unfortunately I'll have to wait until January to get one. My new in two isn't until then, otherwise I pay big $$$. Well, I do anyway, but it's spread through time.

    Happy Holloween!
