When When will Windows Phone 8 be released? was asked, it made me wonder if speculative questions should be off topic.

On the Android StackExchange, they specifically made questions like When will X be available in my country, and When will application Y be released off topic. Should we do the same? This is the thread I can find that explains why.

I feel like for the majority of them we can only speculate. For the few that we could give a solid answer on, It would be a one-liner:

It was announced at X that availability would start on Y

Should we just make these off topic as well?


They should be off topic. Even if it is non-speculative then it is likely to be too localised and/or become out-of-date very quickly.
