Nokia CEO Says First Windows Phones Due this Quarter
Oct 4, 2011, 7:11 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Nokia will debut its first smartphones based on Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.5 Mango platform this quarter, said CEO Stephen Elop at a conference today. Reuters reports that Nokia is expected to debut its first such device at its own Nokia World conference, scheduled for the week of October 24. Further, Elop contends that there is room in the market for a third major smartphone ecosystem (after Google's Android and Apple's iOS) and he believes it will be Windows Phone. "Our belief is that there is a clear opportunity for an alternative ecosystem," he said. Earlier this year, Nokia abandoned its own Symbian and MeeGo smartphone platforms in favor of Microsoft's. The company has indicated more than once that it expects to bring its first WP7 device to market by the end of the year.
