Rumour: Nokia “creating an entire line of Windows Phone devices”?

This rumoured news would certainly help Nokia out and it would be a good transition away from Symbian. Apparently Nokia is in talks with Microsoft to launch Windows Phone 7 devices. These talks are a bit expected as new CEO Stephen Elop just moved from Microsoft to lead Nokia… but even if there are talks it would be months before something if anything happened.

According to Russian Blog Mobile-Review “In the last month behind closed doors is a discussion of expanded cooperation Nokia and Microsoft (two-way discussion, initiated by the new leadership of Nokia). Not simply the exchange of technology, but creating an entire line of Windows Phone devices that may go under the name Nokia, through the sales channels for the company, and will also have the characteristic features of its products. This is a desperate measure of the two companies.”

What d you think about Nokia potentially releasing Windows Phone 7 devices. Will this help them stay the #1 mobile manufacturer in the world?
