PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And the burning platform is still, uhm, burning. "Chief Executive Stephen Elop is placing hopes of a turnaround on a new range of smartphones called Lumia, which use largely untried Microsoft software. But Lumia sales have so far been slow, disappointing investors." It's a shame to see a once proud company in such a downward spiral, but alas, it's the way of business. If you get complacent - as Nokia had gotten - you will fail.

Windows Phone will be out by October, like it usually is.

My doubt is in devices, not just software. It takes a month to two months to ship generic Windows laptops with a new version of Windows, embedded is slower on that front.

Devices came out around the same time last year, no reason to believe any differently this time.

This is nothing but fearmongering.

Edit:

Windows Phone 7.5 rolled out on September 27th and the HTC Titan (Generation 2 device) went on sale October 7th.

Ten days.
