Nokia Working on QWERTY Windows Phone Unit As First Model?

Next week’s Nokia Connection 2011 event in Singapore could bring us the very first Windows Phone Mango unit made by Nokia, or it may just be a MeeGo-related event. However, till then we uncovered a piece of information regarding Nokia’s plans: their first Windows Phone device will be a QWERTY one.

ShinyShiny has the scoop on that, having witnessed a Nokia event yesterday, that included a company official who leaked some details. He claimed that a BlackBerry-rivaling QWERTY model will come this year and Windows Phone si a natural choice for the business user. Combine these two and you’ve got a QWERTY BlackBerry rival made by Nokia and running Mango OS.

The release date was also mentioned, as sometime in Q4 and supposedly there was a Nokia WP7 model seen at a Nokia event last night so it could come sooner. Is June 21st a reason to get even more excited?
