DigiTimes quotes “industry sources” and reports that Windows Phone device makers like HTC, Samsung Electronics, and LG Electronics plan on launching their upcoming Mango-phones this September in order to compete with Apple’s upcoming iPhone.
This might or might not be totally true as Microsoft and its OEMs don’t need to directly compete with Apple’s iPhone just yet, but instead get the platform running on new devices to the market as soon as possible.
According to reports, Nokia will be the last one to launch a Windows Phone. It will allegedly happen in October, with the occasion of Nokia World 2011, a time by which other makers like HTC for instance will have their devices out there already.
The Taiwanese manufacturer is rumored to launch several Windows Phone, powered by 1.5GHz Qualcomm single-core CPUs and screens with different dimensions, ranging from 3.8- to 4.7-inch.
