Today Nokia announced announced that its annual Nokia World conference would be held on October 26-27 in London, leading many to to the conclusion that this will be when they kick off the launch of their WP7 phones. However, there is nothing conclusive about the agenda, which includes two daily keynote addresses and an October 26 "To be announced."
What is known is that Nokia World has historically been where the Finnish phone maker makes big announcements. At Nokia's N9 today at Communiasia in China, CEO Stephen Elop also lent credence to earlier rumblings that the WP7 devices would arrive in Q4 this year. If this is indeed true, the October launch would make these Mango phones ripe for Christmas. What better way to kick of the holiday season than by lifting your company out of the rubble?
