ShinyShinyâ€™s Anna Leach reports from a Nokia event yesterday, and amongst the various statements she makes about the customization that Nokia will bring to Windows Phone 7 (seems primarily deep Ovi Maps integration) she also mentions that a Nokia rep noted Nokia was targeting business users with Windows Phones, and business users want QWERTY keyboards.
Oh and expect a Blackberry-rivalling QWERTY phone in that line-up of phones out this year. Nokia have a A rep said that Nokia wanted to cater to the business market, that Windows Phone was a natural choice for the business user and that business users wanted QWERTY keyboards. I’m taking that as "yes we are releasing a QWERTY phone in our 2011 line-up".
She also notes that the official release date for Nokiaâ€™s Windows Phone 7 handsets was Q4 2011, but that she expects September to be not too unrealistic.
How would our readers feel about a QWERTY Nokia handset? Let us know below.
