Nokia is hard at work on its debut Windows Phone 7 smartphones – Stephen Elop told us so just the other day. But aside from knowing they'll probably run the Mango update to WinPho from launch, there's not a whole lot else we have to go on.
Enter mobile soothsayer Eldar Murtazin, who has dished up some interesting info via Twitter on just what Nokia has in the pipelines.
Murtazin has a knack for revealing inside info way before anyone else has an inkling it even exists, and while he's not always on the money, it happens often enough for us to listen when he talks.
He says two of them are Windows Phone “chassis 1” devices, meaning they will follow the standard WinPho spec seen on current models from other manufacturers – that is a 1GHz or faster processor, at least 8GB of on-board storage and a 5-megapixel camera.
Intriguingly, though, the other pair will be “chassis 2” phones, a class we haven't come across yet. Murtazin refers to the HTC Ignite (or we assume so – he's spelled it “Ignate”), which had an 800MHz processor inside, so we assume chassis 2 is a step-down spec for mid-range phones.
He also confirms Nokia has a tablet in the pipelines, though unlike other rumours we've heard recently he seems fairly convinced it'll run Windows 8.
