Nokia’s First Windows 7 Phones Due Later This Year

The Finnish cellphone maker, Nokia will introduce its first smartphones with Microsoft Windows Phone 7 operating system later this year. Nokia has been around for quite some time in the mobile world and have a long reputation of attaching itself to the Symbian operating system.

Although Symbian was a solid mobile operating system ten years ago, it fails to meet the intuitive feel of both iOS, Windows Phone 7, and Android. Thus, the announcement of integrating Windows Phone 7 in the new Nokia smartphones are sure to make a number of people smile.

We might see one or two Windows Phone 7 Nokia models rise up later this year with the bulk of them hitting stores in 2012 (boy, that sounds like a futuristic year!).

On Tuesday, the cellphone manufacturer revealed its Nokia N9 smartphone, based on the MeeGo platform. The company also has plans to launch up to ten new Symbian-based smartphones over the next year, so I guess old habits die hard.

Nokia developed MeeGo last year in a partnership between Intel but is planning on using Windows Phone 7 as its main operating system going forward next year. Hopefully this will be the last batch of Symbian phones we’ll ever have to see.
