A Choice of Nokia Windows Phones Before Year’s End?
“The year 2012 is when we’ll see a portfolio of [Windows Phone] products shipping in volume. The pressure is on all of us, myself included, to have those first devices this year but we haven’t announced a specific date yet.”
In an interview with Forbes today, Jo Harlow, Nokia’s EVP of Smart Devices, while stopping short of saying definitively that the company will bring a Windows Phone handset to market in 2011, said she’s optimistic that it will do so.
“I’m quite pleased with our progress,” Harlow said. “Our target is absolutely still this year…and the target looks good,” adding the company is shooting for a “small portfolio” of devices, not just one.
