Windows Phone 8 Arriving Just Before Halloween

Windows Phone 8 will apparently be launched Oct 29, two days before Halloween. But this launch doesn't mean what you may think it does --  the phones won't be ready for sale. That won't happen till after sometime later this year.

Scheduling must have been tricky, as Windows 8 and Surface devices are supposed to actually ship on Oct 26.
