According to a tweet by Timo Ronkainen, Stephen Elop, Nokia’s CEO, was spotted at an ice hockey match today, using a Nokia concept device running Windows Phone 7.
@TimoRonkainen: At the ice hockey match today, I saw CEO Stephen Elop using #WP7 running #Nokia mobile phone. I must say, it looked really nice.
Unfortunately, there aren’t any pics of the device, but it looked quite the same as the images of the concept Windows Phone 7 device in Nokia’s launch event.
@TimoRonkainen: @weemundo Unfortunately the moment came too quickly, and it wouldn’t have been appropriate to shoot [any pictures].
@TimoRonkainen: @weemundo The device looked quite the same as in the photos they used in the launch event http://ht.ly/4BKQg
@TimoRonkainen: @weemundo Thanks a lot. I didn’t realise these devices exist yet. Look and feel was WP7 yet Nokia. Really smooth looking.
Now, the concept devices were quite stylish and sleek, and it seems that they were “really smooth looking”. Eldar Murtazin from Mobile-Review recently confirmed that many new Windows Phone 7 devices were in the pipeline. Some details of the Nokia W7 and the Nokia W8, modelled after the Nokia X7 and N8 have already leaked out.
We don’t have any more details about Nokia’s devices, but it does seem like Nokia is working hard to get Windows Phone 7 devices in the market as soon as it can.
