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 Nokiaâ€™s new Windows Phone 7 handsets.Â The market has apparently become increasingly important, with a 80% by revenue penetration of smartphones there, well ahead of the rest of Europe.
