No Nokia Windows Phone for twelve months

Nokia's first

Windows Phone

will arrive in roughly a year's time, according to Nokia India MD D Shivakuma. The exec told

DNA India

that the Finnish company is working on a roughly 12 month timeline, a move which would seemingly bypass

Windows Phone 7

and instead see devices run the next version of the platform,

codenamed Mango


Mango, we have heard separately, looks to be

delayed until 2012 itself

, which has likely put the dampeners on Nokia's 2011 plans. The company had

originally hinted

at a limited Windows Phone range later this year, with "

a large number of Windows Phone devices over a variety of price points

" in 2012.

As for this year, we should expect to see 40-50 new Nokia handsets in 2011 with around 20 of those being Symbian smartphones. In a

regulatory filing last week

, Nokia confirmed it envisaged a two year migration of its smartphone line to Windows Phone.
