Microsoft’s plethora of new Windows Phone 8 devices are slowly being announced. So far we’ve heard from Nokia with the Lumia 820 and the Lumia 920, plus Samsung unveiled the ATIV S. Both manufacturers have stated plans to bring them to Canada “in the coming months.” In addition, a few HTC devices have reportedly leaked online and currently are rumoured to be named the 8X (also known as the ‘Accord’), the 8S and 8V.
Apparently Bell is quite outspoken about their upcoming Windows Phone 8 plans. We received an interesting tip today showing an email between a reader and the Assistant to the President of Bell Mobility stating they have no intentions of releasing the Lumia 920, but will be releasing a couple unnamed devices. According to the conversation it says that “Bell will be supporting the Windows Phone 8 release in Canada with two new devices from leading manufacturers. At this time we are not planning to carry the Nokia Lumia 920.”
That narrows it down a bit… so it certainly looks like Bell is bringing on the Samsung ATIV S and one of the HTC devices. Of course, still speculation until something official is announced.
