Nokia’s first Windows Phone 7 handset will launch in 6 European countries first

At the 2011 Mobile Telecompaper conference Victor Saeijs, Vice President, Nokia Europe told attendees that the Netherlands will be included in the first wave to receive Nokia’s new Windows Phone 7 handsets.  The market has apparently become increasingly important, with a 80% by revenue penetration of smartphones there, well ahead of the rest of Europe.

According to Nokia this would bring the number of countries who will receive the launch handsets to 6 – Netherlands, France, Germany, UK, Spain and Italy.

Saeijs also re-iterated that Nokia’s first Windows Phone 7 handsets will indeed launch this year, saying he was carrying an early prototype himself which he of course could not show off.
