Nokia Windows Phone manufacturer Compal to start shipping the first devices next month
Taiwanese media has overheard that Compal will start shipping the first batch of Nokia Windows Phones in September, and it has been booked to manufacture about two million of those in total until the end of the year.

Nokia went with Compal for the first batch of its Windows Phone devices, since it has more experience than the Finns, as it has been assembling WP7 handsets for latecomer licensees like Acer, ZTE and Fujitsu.

By outsourcing production, Nokia apparently wants to speed the time to market for the Nokia Sea Ray and other WP handsets, since its smartphone sales are getting hammered ever since it announced the grande switch to Microsoft's mobile OS. If this rumor is true, then we can indeed see the phones announced at Nokia World in the end of October, and available for sale immediately thereafter.
