Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has confirmed that the Finnish mobile giant is already working on developing its first Windows Phone 7-powered smartphones, adding that he expects the first models to go on sale in the first quarter of 2012.
Speaking to Reuters, Elop said:
“We’re right now, today, having people work on the first Windows Phone devices from Nokia. That work is already under way. If this was an acquisition scenario, that wouldn’t be possible.”
