Windows Phone 7 on Nokia Coming 2012

We had hopes that Nokia would release Windows Phone 7 devices sometime towards the end of 2011. We now hear that it could be 2012 before we see the first Nokia smartphone with WP7 installed.

The information comes from the managing director of Nokia in India who says that the company is working on a 12 month time line to introduce the first WP7 OS based smartphones. With this in mind, Nokia could be using a next iteration of WP7 that is currently referred to as Mango. Mango is expected to be previewed and perhaps released by the end of this year.

For both Nokia and Microsoft, this could be a win-win situation for both as Nokia were struggling with the Symbian platform that seems a couple of generations behind. WP7 should help push it to the front again and with that, Microsoft could also get the boost it needs to catch up with Android and iOS.

However, Nokia need to act quick as 2012 is another over 9 months away and a lot can change in that time this day in age.
