Nokia’s first Windows Phone device is set to be unveiled next month and a tipster has provided WinRumors with some details of what will be included.
Nokia appears to be preparing to unveil its own voice-navigation software in Windows Phone which will feature 3D maps. An anonymous tipster sent WinRumors images of some marketing posters that T-Mobile in Germany is currently preparing for its Nokia Windows Phones. The posters were briefly displayed at T-Mobile’s on-site shop at the company’s corporate headquarters in Bonn, Germany.
One poster displayed a potential Nokia Windows Phone with the
recently released Nokia Top Apps Windows Phone app installed. The poster (see above) also includes a Media Center app which appears to be Nokia’s only media hub in Windows Phone T-Mobile media center and Top Apps installed. T-Mobile also ships navigation software with some of its devices so it’s possible that its Nokia offering will include T-Mobile’s software. Our tipster also snapped a picture of the description alongside the poster which roughly translates to:
“With Nokia drive safely at the finish – including 3D representation and voice-controlled navigation.
New operating system: Windows phone 7.5 (Mango)
Brilliant 3.7 ” convex Amoled display”
It would appear that at least one of Nokia’s Windows Phone devices will include a 3.7″ AMOLED display and inbuilt satellite navigation. The information matches descriptions of a mystery “Sabre” Nokia Windows Phone device. Microsoft accidentally revealed the device name earlier this week and it is expected to feature a micro-SIM slot and 3.7″ display.
Nokia is expected to unveil its first Windows Phone powered device at its Nokia World 2011 conference in London next month. A number of Microsoft Windows Phone employees will also be speaking at Nokia World to detail the latest improvements with Windows Phone 7.5. Nokia is believed to be preparing its “Sea Ray” device for the first official public unveiling. Nokia Windows Phone devices are expected to hit European shelves in time for the holidays.
Update: Story updated to reflect T-Mobile apps installed on device.
