We already learned earlier this week that Verizon has plans to push Windows Phone to make it "Third Eco-System" however recently Reuters put out a report in which we learn a little more.
Quick recap: Last week Verizon's CFO Fran Shammo came out and stated that Verizon will soon actively push Windows Phone in hope of bring in a Third Eco-System to compete with Android and Verizon's number one loss leader the iPhone.
Now we find out that they will only start pushing Windows Phone when it evolves into Windows Phone 8.   Also we learned "that Verizon Wireless expects to have phones based on the next Microsoft software in time for the 2012 end of year holiday shopping season" and is ramping up for a big push than.
To quote Shammo:
"We're really looking at the Windows Phone 8.0 platform because that's a differentiator. We're working with Microsoft on it.

So even though Microsoft never officially put out a time frame for Widnows Phone 8 one can concluded that Microsoft will have WP8 ready by November of 2012 at the latest.   Windows Phone is finally starting to pick up steam and Microsoft worked long and hard to Verizon on the Windows Phone train.   You can be sure that they will do everything in their power to make sure that the nations number one carrier Verizon gets it's WP8 phones in time for the holiday season.
