If you were every in any doubt as to whether Nokia would launch their first Windows Phone in 2011, well let Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore rest your concerns.

Joe Belfiore is pretty much the face of Windows Phone for Microsoft.

Corporate Vice President
Windows Phone Program

Joe Belfiore co-manages the Windows Phone team, heading up product definition and design.

Joe will be speaking on Day 1, October 26 at 13:35.

Guest Speaker
Building a different kind of UI

Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President, Windows Phone Program, Microsoft

He’s the only one at the moment from Microsoft on the main speakers list but you’ll also note Albert Shum, Director of Mobile Experience Design, Microsoft speaking on a panel. WMPower user says Brandon Watson will also be attending.

Yusuf Mehdi, Senior Vice President, Online Microsoft will participate in panel discussion on Business mobility as a consumer value proposition.

Brandon Watson, Senior Director of Windows Phone 7 development and Matt(hew) Bencke, General Manager of Developer and Marketplace will give developers a Windows Phone Spotlight

Also in the picture is Marko Ahtisaari. He wasn’t there the last time we took a look at the speakers list. We’re a big fan of this guy. He was the one who introduced the N9 to us. He will be on a panel called, “Designing Smarter Phones” and I think he’ll be doing his own talk though I can’t locate what.
