So, TheVerge is reporting that their sources have confirmed Microsoft are considering building a phone next year.

I already addressed this in a previous post so this is not that shocking.

The Verge quote:

Microsoft won’t release its own Windows Phone device this year, sources have told The Verge. Multiple insiders have confirmed there are no plans to introduce a Microsoft-branded Windows Phone device before the end of 2012, but that the company is likely considering it as a “Plan B.”

Umm yeah, we only have 2 months left in 2012, not a surprise that it won’t be released this year.

Look out for a more comprehensive post on why this WILL happen later today.

On a related note, check out the beautiful Microsoft surface Phone concept artwork by Jonas Daehnert. Very impressive indeed.
