June release of the Windows Phone 8 OS was speculated earlier but was considered by many as a mere rumor. However, this time DigiTimes, aTaiwanbased publication claims that they have some reliable inside news from industry.

DigiTimes also accounted that the other Smartphone brands are likely to wait before jumping to adopt the Windows OS to their new device.
