The next few months will be very busy for Microsoft, with several products set to be released, but it's their Windows Phone 8 that have customers eager.
As Latinos Post reported yesterday, a statement by Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop may appear that the new Windows Phone 8 software could be available on their products on October, but a wider release is planned for November.

With information on Windows Phone 8 slowly coming out, the latest information says the new version of Microsoft Office 2013 will be improved for the Phone 8 device, and will grant users the opportunity to go between their computer and mobiles without a hitch, partly due to their cloud service SkyDrive. Microsoft has gone as far to back up such efforts and how the new Office 2013 will integrate with Phone 8.
"With the capabilities that we've built into our roaming settings service, we're able to create new settings that will roam with you across any connected device," said Microsoft's Partner Group Program Manager John Jendrezak.
Jendrezak says Office's Word and PowerPoint, for example, will make it easy to get users back to certain documents or presentations courtesy of their SkyDrive.
"So, if you didn't have time to finish reviewing an important document before you had to leave work, Word will remember what paragraph you were last reading/editing when you open that document on another machine. PowerPoint remembers the slide you were on so you don't have to go hunting for that last edit in a long deck," said Jendrezek.
He confirmed that these features will extend to mobile devices, and Windows Phone will show recent files for one-touch access while users are "on the go."
Giving users the ability to expand their products, Microsoft announced that when the new Office is purchased, you can install the software up to five times on either PC or Mac, since buyers will be put into a special subscription offer.
