Not long ago, the idea of a Nokia Windows Phone 7 device was downright ridiculous.
However, after last week’s rumor that came from Eldar Murtazin (known for uncovering lots of secrets – although he had some inaccurate stories, too), it looks like Nokia and Microsoft are, in fact, planning to make and launch WP7 handsets together.
Of course, this may not happen too soon. But when it will, what do you think the first Nokia Windows Phone 7 device would look like? Nothing special, I’d say. And it will probably not be too far from the concept seen below (apparently made by Mindsailors Design Studio):
Would you buy such a Nokia Windows Phone 7 handset? Do you even like the idea of a Nokia smartphone that runs software not made by Nokia?
At the moment, there are more than 1.5 million WP7 handsets shipped around the world (by manufacturers like HTC, Samsung and LG). If Nokia’s joining the Windows Phone 7 bandwagon, we’ll probably see an impressive growth when it comes to sales. But let’s not anticipate.
