The first Nokia phones to run Windows Phone 8 will arrive next month, reports suggest.
According to Bloomberg, Nokia smartphones powered by the latest version of Microsoft’s operating system will make their debut at the Nokia World expo on September 5th.
The phone-maker plans to have the Lumia-branded handsets on shop shelves before the Christmas holidays, anonymous sources cited by the business site claim.
Assuming the mooted date of the Big Reveal is correct, it gives Nokia just a few weeks to hoover up tech press column inches before the iPhone 5 arrives to gazump whatever the Finns unveil.
Suggestions that Nokia is gearing up for a second assault on the smartphone market it once dominated come amid last week’s purported leaks of a handset codenamed the Lumia X.
Powered by Windows Phone 8, the phone reportedly features an eight megapixel camera affixed on a rotating axis, a ClearBlack AMOLED display and a Snapdragon dual-core processor.
