Nokia Windows Phone: no plans for Gamescom reveal

Gossip centred around joint Microsoft and Nokia event later this month.

It all seemed too good to be true. Nokia and Microsoft’s joint bash during the Gamescom event in Cologne later this month had the web’s tech fans falling over themselves to speculate about whether the fabled Windows Phone-packing Nokia Sea Ray would finally be getting its official unveiling.

Sadly not, it seems. A ‘trusted source’ has told This Is My Next that the two tech giants are simply using the event on 17 August to meet devs before the big launch of the Nokia Windows Phone handset later this year.

So, the wait goes on. Nokia World, held in London on 26 and 27 October, is the most likely place for the phone to be shown off in all its glory. Even then, Nokia is yet to confirm whether it’ll be released this year.

For more on this and the rest of the day’s gadget news and gossip, keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
