Microsoft Said To Have Finalized Windows Phone 8 OS

Summary: Microsoft is believed to have shipped the RTM version of Windows Phone 8 operating system, according to sources. Now it's time for carriers and handset makers to test and preload before the October 29 launch.

Returning in July, I heard whispers that Ms would release to manufacturing (RTM) the Ms Windows  Phone 8 os in Sept. The plan, as of then, was that the first Ms Windows  Phone 8 gadgets would ship in Nov 2012.

On Sept 14, Windows  phone group shipped the OS, codenamed "Apollo," according to a couple of my contacts. WPCentral is reporting they are hearing the same. And WMPoweruser has published pictures via, of what appear to be Ms Windows  Phone associates signing an RTM wall.

I asked a Ms Microsof organization Windows  Phone representative on Sept 14 if the OS had RTM'd and was told Ms "had nothing to share presently."

If the OS has, indeed, been announced "done," it's here we are at handset makers and providers to do their final testing and preloading of the OS onto new mobile phone devices.

Microsoft wouldn't allow its phone partners to let folks try the WP8 gadgets that Samsung and Htc recently revealed. I'd expect at least aspect of the purpose for that was the OS wasn't yet fully cooked. (This also is probably at least aspect of the purpose Ms has late making the Ms Windows  Phone 8 software development kit available to more than just its own workers and a select group of Connect evaluators.)

Even though Ms already went public with many of the Ms Windows  Phone 8 functions, the organization has yet to "launch" the Ms Windows  Phone 8 platform. The Ms Windows  Phone 8 release is going to happen on Oct 29 in either San Francisco or Los Angeles, I keep hear. Shortly after that, Ms Windows  Phone 8 gadgets will go on sale. Some vendors/carriers could offer pre-orders before Oct 29, but mobile phone devices are not expected to be available to consumers until after that date.

The Ms Windows  Phone 8 OS changes the Ms Windows  Included core with a Ms Windows  NT-based one. The latest os includes multicore assistance, NFC/Wallet assistance, detachable Micro SD card storage (for certain phone models), security and secure boot. Ms Windows  Phone 8 will assistance two new screen resolutions— 1280x768 and 1280x720, in addition to the current 480X800.

Microsoft authorities also keep decrease to thoughts on when Ms plans to make the Ms Windows  Phone OS 7.8 upgrade available to current Ms Windows  Phone users. The 7.8 upgrade, according to Ms authorities long ago in May, will include the new multi-size tiled OS that will be aspect of Ms Windows  Phone 8, but no other new functions.

As declared at the annual Ms organization meeting on Sept 13, Ms is providing all of its workers with free Ms Windows  Phone 8 gadgets, as well as Surface pills, according to a report from GeekWire.
