Nokia May Launch Windows 8 Smartphones in Sep: Report

Nokia is likely to launch two smartphones based on Windows 8 in September, Eastern Morning Herald said in a report. According to the report, Nokia will hold an event on September 5 to showcase two Windows Phone 8 handsets, supposed to named Lumia 910 and Lumia 920.

The launch would give Nokia a one-month window when it would be the only phone maker to offer Windows 8 phones. Earlier, Financial Times reported that Nokia has already entered into negotiations with European operators about forming an exclusive partnership to launch Windows 8 phones.

This would be a departure for Nokia in its marketing strategy which has relied on distributing phones across all sales channels after a launch.
