Nokia Windows Phone 7 show and tell on the 17th? Unlikely

image001-1

There is a new rumour going around, of Nokia potentially showing off their first Windows Phone 7 handset at an Athens event in a few days time.

While we are sure the event is quite real, it is much more likely it will be Symbian devices on display.  Stephen Elop has recently said Nokia was trying to reduce the time between announcing and releasing devices, and showing a device which at a minimum is 4 months away from release (and only 3 months away from development being started) seems rather unlikely.

In addition Athens is not exactly London or Barcelona, and is an unlikely venue for a major announcement like Nokia’s first Windows phone 7 handset would be.

I think we can safely put this one rumour in the round filling cabinet.
