Verizon Wireless CFO Fran Shammo today said that the company is working with Microsoft on Windows Phone 8 devices, which it expects to launch later this year. "We're really looking at the Windows Phone 8.0 platform because that's a differentiator. We're working with Microsoft on it," Shammo said in an interview with Reuters. The company would use in as a third smartphone platform alongside Android and iOS. Though Verizon offered several Windows Phone devices, it has shied away from the current batch of phones. Verizon has insisted that all its smartphones moving forward have LTE 4G on board, a feature that Windows Phones have so far lacked. Microsoft has provided few details about Windows Phone 8, but it is expected to arrive by the holiday season later this year.
