Windows Phone 8 is finally complete according to reports that began trickling out last night. WPCentral heard from a pair of sources that the software has indeed reached the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) stage of the process, which means manufacturers will now have access to the final build of the software. It's not a big surprise, since we heard a few days ago that Microsoft was prepared to sign off on the final software this week.
From here on out, the road to release is going to rest in the hands of carriers and hardware partners, who have to complete testing and finalize their own revisions of the software before shipping out products. This also means that we could be looking forward to a fully functional Windows Phone 8 SDK for developers to dig in to and start coding apps for the new platform. So far, only existing developers with at least one app installed are eligible to sign up for the SDK Preview Program.
