Nokia Windows Phone 7 Mango handsets already exist, no launch date given

Earlier today, when announcing the brand new Windows Phone Mango, Andy Lees, President of Mobile Communications Business at Microsoft, made an interesting (but perhaps not surprising) remark:

“We already have Nokia handsets that run Windows Phone Mango in our labs.”

Unfortunately, no other details about this were given. However, Nokia itself has acknowledged that Mango “is the software that will be used on the first Nokia with Windows Phone device” on its official blog. It didn’t say when exactly this will be released.

(not a real Windows Phone Mango handset, just the Nokia X7 photoshopped)

Since we’ve heard that the first WP-based Nokia handsets would be the W7 and W8, these two may be the ones that are currently in Microsoft’s and Nokia’s labs, running Mango and being prepared for launch. Sure enough, the two companies may also work on handsets that no one heard of until now. We’ll probably find out more official details about this towards the end of the year.

    Microsoft is trying hard with the
    window7.5 phone to stand apart for good from the mobile space kings (ANDROID
    and Apple) but, may be Microsoft will still have to wait for the features of
    much awaited iOS 5 and Ice Cream sandwich to be disclosed. Apart from the IE9
    browser, there are 2 features among the reported 500 features of Mango, those
    are Quick Cards and Local Scout. Though both the features are identical, the
    Local Scout will give the info about the events happening in the neighborhood
    whereas, the Quick Cards displays all the info about a searched item in Bing.
