Microsoft is rumored to release WP8 devices by the end of September.

A report from Pocketnow suggests that Microsoft is currently gearing up to launch Windows Phone 8 in September.

The website was tipped off with an internal Microsoft memo, which said the company has set up an “initial announcement embargo date” for the new mobile operating system on September 30.

It might be possible that Microsoft will use the date to announce when Windows Phone 8 devices will be available, and by whom, eventually releasing in the initially promised release schedule of this Fall. Regardless, the date is a big one for those awaiting the new mobile OS. Microsoft is also expected to announce all the new consumer features by then, as well.
