They've always been adamant that their first crop of Windows Phone 7 handsets will be plucked from the ground late-2011, and according to their official Twitter account, there's no sign of delay 'round their Finnish blocks.

"We cannot confirm local availability but the 1st Nokia w/ WP devices will ship in Q4 and with volumes in 2012," they tantalisingly tweeted. We can chime in at this point and say that with Nokia World scheduled for the 26th and 27th of October in London, we'd be willing to gamble our (humble-sized) flat on a late-October reveal of the "Sea Ray" handset.
