The much-anticipated fusion of Nokia’s killer hardware and Microsoft’s innovative software is gradually dawning upon us as the date of Nokia World 2011 is announced.The company has now announced that its annual Nokia World conference will take place on October 26-27, thus giving life to rumors this might be the time and date of the much-anticipated introduction of its first Windows Phone 7 smartphones.

Furthermore, at the CommunicAsia 2011 event, CEO Stephen Elop did confirm what Nokia’s EVP said in May, namely that the company is indeed going to launch its first WP7 handsets this year, so an October 26 introduction sounds fitting to us, to say the least.
