Good news for People around the world! Microsoft revealed last week that Windows 8 Phone available in 180 countries when it launches later this year and they have finally revealed which countries will be getting it.
In Microsoft blog, Microsoft released the list of every country that will have access to Windows Phone 8 Marketplace and the App Hub app submission portal when Windows 8 Phones arrive.
We're still waiting to get our ears on a proper Windows Phone 8 release date we're currently being given the boring notion of 'autumn', which could be any time from October to Christmas for all we know. However, we expect it to be sooner rather than later as Microsoft won't want to miss the traditional holiday season gadget-buying rush.
If you like the sound of all this, then the good news is you won't have to wait until your mobile network gets around to testing and pushing out updates in the future either.
In summary, Microsoft is adding the features that Windows Phone needs to succeed and that need new hardware. It's also finally doing something to address the problem of upgrades that would work on your handset but you're frustratingly unable to get listen up, Google.
Where Windows Phone still needs to catch up with the other smartphone systems on features it's doing that much faster. Now it just needs to sell more devices.
Okay..Windows 8 Phone will be available in 180 countries later this year, let's see the list.
