Rogers has spelled out some of their upcoming Windows plans, and just to clarify, that looks to include Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Beginning first with the Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 tablet news, these devices look to include the Nokia Lumia 920, HTC Windows Phone 8X and the Samsung ATIV S smartphones as well as the Samsung ATIV Smart PC tablet.

The Lumia 920 will be available in Black and exclusive with Rogers. The Windows Phone 8X will be available in Black with 8GB of storage and in Blue with 16GB of storage. In addition, the ATIV Smart PC will also be a Rogers exclusive. At this time, we have yet to be given the complete picture in terms of pricing and release dates. That said, Rogers customers can reserve the Lumia 920 or Windows Phone 8X by heading to the Rogers Reservation System.

Moving away from the devices and into the apps. These look to include support for Rogers One Number on Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 tablets and a Rogers My Account app on Windows 8 tablets. Finally, Rogers Anyplace TV Live will be launching for Windows Phone 8 and Rogers Anyplace TV (on demand) will be available for Windows 8 tablets.
