Nokia may not release Windows Phones to US before 2012

6a00d83451c9ec69e2015392777b8d970bAlthough it's quite a bummer, this move isn't completely unexpected. Nokia probably won't be bringing its new Windows Phones, like the Sea Ray and the Sabre (that you see to your right,) to the US before 2012, if a new report is to be believed.

Nokia is set to launch some new WP7 devices this week at its Nokia World conference in London, but that's the problem: it's in London. The Finnish phone mega-manufacturer has been advertising across the pond about what's coming from its partnership with Microsoft, but is allegedly still looking for a PR and advertising firm here.

Because of that, it seems that the US won't be seeing any Mango-flavored Nokia devices before year's end. What's worse is the fact that by the time Nokia's gotten around to releasing anything here, those devices will be somewhat outdated as they start arriving stateside.

Still, it's better late for beautiful hardware from one of the best phone makers in the world, right? And if what Nokia announces this week is absolutely stunning, there's still the option to import it here before the rest of us get the chance to own one.

Are you excited about what's coming from Finland?
