Nokia says first Windows phone due 2011
HELSINKI (Reuters) - Nokia (NOK1V.HE) will start to sell its first Windows Phone model this year, the company said on Thursday.
Finnish broadcaster MTV3 earlier reported on its website the phonemaker will have only one Windows-based model this year, citing Chief Financial Officer Timo Ihamuotila, but later replaced the story.
In its replacement report, MTV3 quotes Ihamuotila as saying the fact there will be an initial handset does not mean there will be only one model this year.
A Nokia spokesman said the original report was wrong.
This month, chief executive Stephen Elop indicated Nokia would launch several Windows devices this quarter.
