A new rumor surfaced Tuesday claiming that Windows Phone 8 devices will become available for pre-order from AT&T on Oct. 21.
Microsoft and AT&T haven't officially revealed their plans for the new Windows Phone OS, but unnamed sources have reportedly told The Verge that pre-orders will commence before the end of October.
Further, Windows Phone 8 devices from HTC and Nokia will become available in early November, according to these sources.
Microsoft reportedly declined to comment, but mentioned "Windows Phone 8 phones will be available to customers later this year."
TechRadar requested additional information from AT&T, but the carrier replied that there's nothing more to share at this time.
Windows Phone 8 devices
Windows Phone 8 isn't exclusive to AT&T - for example, the Nokia Lumia 820 appeared to pop up on Verizon as the "Atlas" on Tuesday - but the Oct. 21 pre-order date only applies to AT&T so far.
Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 launch dates
The Windows Phone 8 launch is expected three days later on Oct. 29.
