First Nokia Windows Phone Still on Course for Q4 Release

Ed Hardy Ed Hardy Profile: Ed Hardy

Nokia has committed to releasing its first handset running Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system before the end of this year, but I can understand if some of you are wondering if the company will meet that deadline. Moving ponderously is one of Nokia’s trademarks, and the search for a replacement for the Symbian OS has been a slow and painful one.

As a bit of reassurance, here’s CEO Stephen Elop telling a Chinese news source (in English) that everything is going along well in this project.

If you haven’t been following this story closely, Nokia announced early this year that it is is giving up Symbian on all it’s high-end devices, and dropping its plan to move to the MeeGo OS. More recently, an unconfirmed report indicates that this company’s initial Windows Phone will be the Nokia 703. This will supposedly have a 3.7-inch WVGA (480 x 800) touchscreen, 8GB of storage, and a 5MP camera.
