2012 Nokia Windows 7 phones Featurescellfeatures
Nokia Windows phones 2012As part of the Nokia-Microsoft partnership for Windows Phone 7, Microsoft had stated previously that it would allow Nokia un-restricted access and alterations to the OS as necessary. The result of that collaboration and Nokia’s customizations to Windows Phone 7 may materialize as early as 2012.
OS will include “several new software upgrades, exclusive functions forNokia phones and software that will not be available for other manufacturers who licence the OS.”"
To ease user concerns that a large and material change to the OS code may hinder timely delivery of over-the-air software and firmware updates by Microsoft to Nokia Windows Phone 7 handsets, Nokia has stated in the past that it would not make any changes that would disrupt OTA update deliveries. That said, it’s unclear what the exclusive changes or features would be that may appear on Nokia phones running Microsoft’s mobile OS in 2012..
(Reuters) - Nokia board chairman said on Wednesday Nokia Windows phones will be on the markets from 2012 on and noted that Nokia had other potential partners in addition to Microsoft and Google.
Nokia announced last Friday it would partner with Microsoft and would adopt Windows Phone software across its devices, replacing its home-grown Symbian platform and turning the world's largest cellphone maker into a pure hardware player.
"These Windows-based products (will be on markets) from 2012 onwards," Jorma Ollila said in an interview with Finnish broadcaster YLE.
Nokia Chief Executive Stephen Elop said on Tuesday the firm was feeling the pressure and aimed to produce a phone running new partner Microsoft's operating system by the end of this year.
Ollila said Microsoft had not been the only option for Nokia and noted many companies had showed their interest in cooperating with the Finnish mobile phone maker.
He also said he had not been pressured by any shareholders about who should be Nokia's chief executive. Elop started at the helm of Nokia last September and the Canadian is the first non-Finn to head the firm.
Ollila repeated that he is available to work at Nokia board until 2012.
