T-Mobile Germany starts prepping for Nokia Windows Phone

Some marketing materials from T-Mobile Germany have given us a few details on what to expect from Nokia’s first Windows Phone. It’ll be running the recently-released Mango update, have a 3.7-inch convex AMOLED touchscreen, and include a navigation app with 3D rendering and voice control. Most of that we’ve already heard in previous Sea Ray leaks, which suggest the device will also have a 5 megapixel camera, and a chassis roughly equivalent to Nokia’s one and only Meego handset, the N9.

We’re expecting the first Nokia Windows Phone to ship sometime in Q4, potentially as soon as November 27, so it’s not surprising to carriers preparing for a launch now. It’s a pretty big deal for both Nokia and Microsoft; Nokia has ditched Symbian and are placing all of their bets on Windows Phone, while Microsoft’s Windows Phone sales haven’t been particularly good after a year of being in the wild. The two giants could potentially help each other out, but that depends on Nokia pumping out enough quality phones and Microsoft making the OS as smooth and feature-rich as possible. If the partnership doesn’t work out, both Nokia and Microsoft may fail to dent growing Android and iPhone market share. Even a second wind from Windows 8 devices may not make up for lost time.

How excited are you guys for a Nokia Windows Phone? Is it something you see people realistically buying before high-end Android handsets?
