Nokia will introduce its first Windows 8 handsets as early as the beginning of September, according to Bloomberg.

A source told the publication that Nokia is planning to announce the phones at its Nokia World event, which takes place on September 5 this year.

This means that Nokia would end up unveiling the new smartphones just one week before Apple is expected to announce the next iPhone.

Nokia’s goal is to make the phones available in stores before the holiday season in an effort to boost its lagging handset sales in the U.S.
