T-Mobile getting Nokia C7 despite Nokia’s plans for Windows Phone 7

23 Mar

The Wall Street Journal reports that Nokia intends to launch the Symbian^3-powered C7 smartphone on T-Mobile, despite its recent deal with Microsoft to produce Windows Phone 7 handsets. Nokia has stated before that it will continue to sell Symbian-powered phones while it transitions over to Windows Phone 7 completely, which could take up to two years. The C7, while available worldwide since October of last year, would be the first Symbian^3 phone available on a U.S. carrier. While it is unknown what specific customizations T-Mobile will have on the C7 it carries, you can take a look at our review of the global C7 here. We expect the official launch of the Nokia C7, in some form, to take place this week during the CTIA show in Orlando, which we will be attending.
