Nokia Windows Phone 7 handset 'looks good' network claims

Nokia's imminent Windows Phone 7 device has been rated as 'looking good' by Virgin Media's Director of Mobile following a hands-on, but the Smartphone network will not host the device

With the eagerly awaited first handset collaboration between Nokia and Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system still to be unveiled, Virgin Media’s Director of Mobile has confirmed the handset ‘looks good’ but will not hit the Virgin branded network.

Speaking exclusively with T3, Virgin Media’s Director of Mobile, Jamie Heywood said of Nokia’s overdue Windows Phone 7.5 device, tipped to be branded the SeaRay “I had a go, it looked good.”

He added: “We are not going to be ranging the new Nokia Windows Phone this quarter, but having seen it , I think it is definitely a step forward from previous cooperation’s they’ve had.”

Nokia Windows Phone 7 Rumours: The story so far

Having penned a deal with Microsoft early this year to become a key manufacturer of Windows Phone 7 handsets, it was widely expected that Nokia’s first WP device would land alongside the long touted Windows 7.5 Mango update.

With Mango now available to existing WP handset users, however, and a range of dedicated Windows 7.5 such as the HTC Titan unveiled and launched to UK markets, it is rumoured the first Nokia devices will not touch down until early 2012.
