Nokia to Launch Windows Phones First in six European countries

June 17, 2011 No Comments

I am a bit surprised to find out that Nokia isn’t planning to launch its first Windows Phones in the US. Let alone the fact that they aren’t going to be launching first in their home of Finland either. Nokia vice president Victor Saeijs revealed the six launch markets at the 2011 Mobile Telecompaper conference. Nokia plans to launch first in

  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • Spain
  • UK
  • Netherlands

‘Nokia’s Windows Phone devices are currently labeled with “W” (for Windows). The first handset is expected to be a variant of Nokia’s X7 device. The prototype is equipped with a WVGA display, Qualcomm QSD8250 chipset and 8MP camera. Nokia is also rumored to be launching a dual-core N8 variant with a 12MP camera, QWERTY touchscreen candy bar phone and a cheaper touchscreen device with less expensive body.’  – WinRumors

Hopefully the launch windows is a short one and the US gets a taste of Windows Phone on Nokia handsets before the years end. Especially if the Nokia Windows Phones are  supposed to knock our socks off!
