Will we be seeing a Nokia Lumia Windows 8 Phone device by September 2012? That is pretty much a certainty as far was we are concerned. Nokia World is set to begin in September 5. So we do expect to see at least three new Nokia Windows Phone 8 devices announced at Nokia World. What we are less sure about is when they get to the market. My Nokia Blog has a very interesting picture taken at a Nokia store in Helsinki, Finland which seems to indicated that we may actually see the actual Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices on the shelves by September 7, 2012.

Nokia is hemorrhaging cash. It needs to get Windows Phone 8 devices out in the market as soon as possible. Preferably, before Apple launches its next iPhone and Google launches its next Nexus phone, which two events we expect to happen not later than October or November of this year. Will Nokia be able to head off the new Apple on Google flagship phones? We will find out in a month and a half. But, there is no question that Nokia has to launch its new Windows Phone 8 devices as soon as possible.
