Nokia Windows Phone 7 handsets only coming to Australia in 2012

More bad news for those who are holding out for a Nokia Windows Phone 7 handset. If you are in Australia you may have to hold out a bit longer, with Nokia telling there:

We won’t be releasing a Nokia on Windows Phone until Q1 of next year. Can’t be more specific than that sorry!

The news is on the back of earlier reports that even some European countries like Portugal will not be included in the initial distribution of Nokia’s first Windows Phones, meaning it will likely only be the “big 5” in Europe who will get their hands on the Nokia Sea Ray  on release.

Thanks AG for the tip.
