Japanese mobile phone carrier NTT DoCoMo is set to make Windows Phone 8 devices available for its users in the not too distant future, the company has confirmed on Thursday.

The wireless services provider has already announced a series of Windows 8 PCs that will land on its LTE network, and unveiled that it will complement them with smartphones as well.

Unfortunately, no specific info on when these handsets might become available for purchase has been provided, nor details on the smartphones that would arrive on the NTT DoCoMo network.

Microsoft officially launched the Windows Phone 8 platform on Monday, and the first handsets running under it started to arrive on shelves this week, with expanded availability expected before the end of November. Nokia, HTC and Samsung are the first vendors to release such smartphones.
