Stephen Elop: Nokia's First Windows Phones Coming in a few Weeksby Kristian Vättö on October 4, 2011 11:23 AM EST
While we are all excited about today's iPhone event, Nokia has shed some light to their Windows Phone schedule as well. Nokia's CEO, Stephen Elop, held a speech yesterday at ECT Forum in Helsinki, Finland, where he revealed that Nokia's first Windows Phone 7-based devices will be revealed within a few weeks. This isn't a surprise since Nokia will be holding the annual Nokia World Trade show on October 26th in London. However, this hints that Nokia has not experienced any further delays, although it's not clear when Nokia will actually be shipping these phones.
How many and what kind of phones Nokia will announce, is the question. Some reports have suggested three models at the beginning, but there are no concrete proofs to support that. What is certain is that these phones will pretty much dictate Nokia's future in the smartphone market.
