Microsoft on Tuesday said it’s identified that pesky reboot issue tormenting Windows Phone 8 users. The company didn’t say why, or even what, is causing the devices to act the way they do, but a fix should be forthcoming in December. We’ve been using both the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC Windows Phone 8X, and haven’t ran into the issue on either, so it’s obviously only affecting certain handsets and not every WP8 handset out there. On that note, Microsoft neglected to give any details on which devices are most susceptible to the bug. In any case, a fix is on the way, which is certainly good news for frustrated users.

We’re continuing to investigate some reports of phone rebooting and have identified a cause with our partners, Microsoft told AllThingsD. We are working to get an over-the-air update out in December.
