A leaked pricing list from TIM (Telecom Italia Mobile) suggests Nokia’s first Windows Phone handset will land in Italy in “Novembre”. I don’t speak Italian, but I’m pretty sure that’s November.
Unfortunately there’s no handset name to go on, just Nokia Windows Phone 7.5. Bah.
So what could it be? Well, there’s the good old Sea Ray, of course. We’ve been hearing about that particular chap for some time now. He kinda scuppered our chances of seeing the MeeGo-running N9 in the UK, but no hard feelings.
We recently heard about a couple more Nokia Windows Phone 7.5 handsets, namely the Nokia Sabre (a slightly more modest Sea Ray) and the Nokia Ace (a meaty 4.3in Sea Ray).
The handsets on the TIM leak appear to be listed in order of price. The Nokia Windows Phone 7.5’s price tag is blacked out, but it appears between the BlackBerry Bold 9780 and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S, so upper-mid we reckon.
We’ll inevitably hear more about the Finns’ Windows Phone plans at Nokia World, which gets underway on October 26.
