Microsoft is targeting the holiday season for its next major Windows Phone update, according to a job posting on its website.

The posting is for a software development engineer in the test team of its Redmond, Washington-based Windows Mobile department.

"This is a great time to join as we're completing our current release are getting ready for our next release targeting the holiday of this year [...]keeping the momentum for Windows Phone by bringing new killer devices and delightful user experiences," reads the posting.

The Windows Phone team is known for its pattern of releasing both patches and major version updates of the mobile OS during the holiday season. The next iteration of the software is expected to be called Windows Blue, though that has yet to be confirmed by Microsoft.
