FINNISH PHONE MAKER Nokia could launch its first Windows phone 7.5 Mango handset in November, according to a leaked release schedule.

Italian carrier TIM is showing a November release for the device, said a report on Knowyourmobile. The web site added that this likely will be a Europe-wide release for the handset.

Apparently, several Microsoft executives are down for the manufacturer's Nokia World event next week, and we are expecting the announcement of a Windows phone then.

The latest Nokia leak is one of many. Earlier this month, Nokia had another one of its upcoming Windows Phone handsets called the Sun leaked on the internet.

We had previously seen a leak of the firm's Sea Ray phone, which is believed to be its first Windows Phone handset. The Nokia Sun is coming in November from Orange in France, previous reports have said, so it could be the handset mentioned in the latest leak.

The Nokia Sun will have a 3.7in AMOLED screen and a 1.4GHz processor. Other specifications we can gather include an 8MP camera, 16GB of internal storage and a uni-body design. Interestingly it apparently has a microSIM slot.

The Sea Ray is likely to be the flagship device from Nokia and the Sun will be a smaller and probably more budget friendly version. Check back next week for The INQUIRER's coverage of Nokia World on 26 and 27 October. µ
