First Nokia Windows phone possibly shown off briefly at D9 conference

| June 2, 2011 | 16 Replies

During Stephen Elop’s interview at the D9 conference that Andre nicely highlighted the most important points here, Walt Mossberg asked  Stephen, when Nokia will be releasing their first Wp7 device and as usual Elop replayed with the Q4 time realm which seems to be the settled time frame for the first Mango device running the software from Redmond. More interestingly Elop decided to tease the audience with an intriguing piece of hardware….

The intriguing bit of the interview was the hardware that he briefly showed off, he didn’t mention if it was a Nokia device, but he practically confirmed it in a warm and jokingly manner:


“I carry all forms of innovative hardware at all times”


And then pulled the prototype out of his jacket for a quick sneak peak, Mossberg then asked him to take it out again and Elop replied “thats what you call a sneak peak and that he would have to wait for a launch to see it”.

To go with that in another interview

In a Businessweek article that I strongly recommend that you read, Elop made some encouraging news on the speed of development concerning on the Windows Phone front.


“I’ve got a working Windows Phone in my pocket now, and it’s been less than three months since we began working with Microsoft. We’re moving at a speed that’s faster than Nokia has ever moved before.”



Sounds encouraging right ? Another closer look at what could be Nokia’s first Windows Phone device.


PS (Imagine if Nokia had worked this fast on Symbian and MeeGo devices, hindsight is a beautiful thing isn’t it :-))

    MR-forums are suggesting it’s the Harmattan device…

      Could be but in the interview they never really talked about MeeGo much, and Mossberg did ask before Elop showed the prototype when the first Windows Phone from Nokia will be released.

    since i am here to troll i must say that elop does not know what he is talking about, that thing he just showed is a hunk of plastic, eldar is always right and android rules.

    He’s such a tease!! haha.

  4. Vikas Patidar says:

    From the ‘Nokia Conversations’ – “He also does a sneak reveal of a mystery device not running Windows Phone”.

    So probably it should be a MeeGo device.
