Nokia has reportedly confirmed that it will introduce multiple Windows Phone handsets this year, rather than just one model as had been rumored previously. Speaking with Reuters, Nokia chief executive Stephen Elop said that the company will introduce multiple Windows Phone-powered products this quarter as the company begins a new chapter in its storied history. Nokia announced earlier this year that it would move away from Symbian and MeeGo, and instead build smartphones based on Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform. “Our belief is that there is a clear opportunity for an alternative ecosystem,” Elop told Reuters just ahead of Apple’s iPhone unveiling on Tuesday. Nokia is expected to introduce its first Windows Phone devices later this month at its annual Nokia World event in London.
