Nokia W7 and W8: first Nokia Windows Phone 7 handsets named

First two Nokia WP7 handsets will pave way for dozen new phones in 2012.

Nokia spent the early part of this week plying its new Symbian wares. But now attention has turned to its forthcoming Windows Phone 7 handsets, with Russian mobile fanatic Eldar Murtazin getting the skinny on two new devices packing Microsoft’s ace OS.

Dubbed the Nokia W7 and W8, the pair of phones are based around the newly announced Nokia X7 and the Nokia N8 respectively. Of course, while the hardware might be similar, the software will be completely different, with WP7 working overtime under the hood.

Murtazin said that all Nokia WP7 phones will be using Qualcomm chips. The W7, which packs an 8 megapixel camera, will be the first to hit shelves and will be quickly followed by the W8 and a dozen phones rocking Microsoft’s mobile operating system in 2012.

Nokia has suggested recently that its first WP7 phones wouldn’t be out until next year. But this level of detail means we could be looking at a release on the right side of Christmas 2011. Here’s hoping, as these are Nokia phones well worth shouting about.
