According to a member of Windows Phone team who posted from his Sina Weibo account, Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 has now been released to manufacturing (RTM). Terry Myerson, Windows Phone Division Corporate VP, and his team members have signed off on the RTM signature wall.

The Windows Phone 8 OS, codenamed Apollo, was first unveiled by Microsoft at the Windows Phone Summit in June 2012, and later a leaked Windows Phone 8 SDK revealed more new features for end users. Now that the OS is finalized and being delivered to hardware OEMs, it’s a straight road ahead to get it into the hands of consumers. The latest rumor shows that Microsoft is targeting an October 29 Windows Phone 8 launch date. So stay tuned, we will hear more about WP8 soon. (via LiveSino)

    RTM means they’re going to either announce the rest of the things they haven’t told us about very soon or there will be “leaks” all over the web!

    About time…I’m with @hysonmb:disqus , can’t wait for them to start talking about all of these top-secret features or leaks start popping up. I’m hoping that holding out this long is worth all of the missed opportunities that have come up over the last two days when the press compared the “boring” iPhone 5 to the Lumia 920 (i.e. their verdicts seemed to praise the Lumia 920, but the fact that they didn’t know everything about WP8 would hold them from claiming WP8 had more exciting things coming along).
