“We believe Mango offers developers opportunities to create new mobile experiences leveraging both companies’ complementary assets while providing consumers with a new choice in mobile.”

At the same time, Harlow explained that Nokia does not plan on releasing only a series of high-end Windows Phones, but that it aims at making the platform available for a wider range of users.

The handset vendor aims at coming up with a series of products that would address the needs of more audiences and markets than before/

“Knowing that Windows Phone represents Nokia’s primary smartphone strategy, all of Nokia's smartphone engineering resources are being prioritised to make the best hardware for the forthcoming Nokia with Windows Phone devices,” a post on Forum Nokia states.

The mobile phone maker would work with Microsoft for the delivery of devices that differentiate from other products through the inclusion of Nokia's own iconic hardware and services, and through applying consistent design principles that would result in a unique look and feel.

Mango arrives on devices with a number of more than 1,500 new APIs packed inside, along with hardware-accelerated IE9 and HTML5 support, emulator support with accelerometer, gesture support, and more.
