Nokia Windows Phone coming to Telstra

Good news for those on Telstra, looks like you folks will be getting a shot at Nokia's Windows Phone (we assume the SeaRay/800). Though it's not too clear when you'll be getting it, it sounds like sooner than later.

From an article by Channel News in Australia, a source from Telstra has revealed that Nokia has already showed them the phone:

"It is very smart and visually appealing" they said. "The issue will be whether consumers are prepared to invest in a Windows based model. They haven't in the past" said the Telstra executive.

Of course that statement is interesting on two levels, one for the Nokia info but also Telstra seems unimpressed so far with Windows Phone as a seller on their network. Lets see if this changes things up a bit, eh?

Thanks, Hommus01, for the tip!
