Nokia Windows Phone 7 handset to hit the UK in Q4

Nokia to launch its Windows Phone 7 handsets in the UK later this year, alongside Microsoft's Mango OS update

The first Nokia handsets to run Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system are to launch in the UK later this year with Nokia CEO Stephen Elop confirming the handsets will land in Q4.

Following on from the announcement earlier this year that Nokia had partnered with Microsoft to be the primary supplier of Windows Phone 7 handsets in an attempt to turn round its dwindling market share and poor smartphone showing Elop has confirmed that six European markets will launch the device this year.

Forgoing to big US launch to kick off its Windows Phone 7 debut, Nokia has revealed that despite omitting its native Finland, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Holland and Italy will all see networks stock its devices before the year’s end.

Microsoft officially detailed the upcoming Mango update to its Windows Phone 7 platform last month with hundreds of new features set to hit the fledgling OS in September, a release that is to be quickly followed by Nokia’s handsets.

Will the company’s partnership with Microsoft and Windows Phone 7 save Nokia from its slippery slope or is it all to late for the Finnish phone manufacturer? Share your thoughts via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
