In a Tweet from the official Nokia account, the Finnish phone giant has confirmed its first Windows Phone handsets will be available in Q4 this year.
We’re expecting the Sea Ray to be the first fruits of the collaboration between Nokia and Microsoft. We first caught a tantalising glimpse of the phone earlier this year, when Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop pulled out an early sample from his pocket – only to put it back in again very quickly.
Since then there have been a few blurry shots taken at a Nokia event. Made from a single piece of material with an 8-megapixel camera and Gorilla Glass screen, it’s certainly an attractive device, and looks very similar to the Meego touting Nokia N9 of course running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango instead.
Of course Q4 is quite a wide date spectrum, but it’s safe to say it will be available from October to December, lets hope it’s earlier rather than later. With the iPhone 5 potentially launching soon, along with the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich phone, it’s going to be up against so stiff competition.
