Angst was at an all-time high with reports of vacations being cancelled and all hands assembled to make sure that Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 gets out the door on time. Good news for Windows Phone fans and certainly Windows Phone OEM partners as this evening news leaks that one of the last major hurdles to retail availability of your favorite HTC, Nokia or Samsung WP8 device has been cleared.
With the competition fast and fierce for consumer dollars its good to see that the Windows Phone team got this out the door. Now we can sit back and know with a little more certainty and hope that our next devices will be available sooner than later. Now the attention turns to what unique consumer features Microsoft has been hiding. There is a ton of excitement just coming from what we were introduced to in June and the subsequent early SDK leak.
Congrats to the Windows Phone team for hitting the mark and saving some people from the ledge in the process.
