Nokia Windows Phone: a new handset every three months

Espoo exec spills details on WP7 plans

Nokia looks to throw its weight behind Windows Phone.

Nokia’s Windows Phone plans appear to be ramping up, with the mobile maker’s vice president of smart devices claiming it could release a new phone packing the OS every few months.

"We should be launching new devices in a rhythm that might be every couple of months, every three months, something like that," said Jo Harlow. "We're going to keep coming with new devices in order to have something to talk about.”

This would mark a radical departure for Microsoft, which has seen only a smattering of devices using WP7 launch since the initial rush from HTC and Samsung last October. Nokia has experience of continual releases, pumping out stacks of top-end Symbian phones when it was at the height of its powers.

Earlier this week, Nokia confirmed that it would be launching a number of Windows Phones later this year. That came after Microsoft touted its Windows Phone Mango update officially for the first time.
