A bunch of exciting Nokia Windows Phone news yesterday. Information and resources for you.

imageAs many of you probably already know, Stephen Elop, Nokia President and CEO, introduced the new Windows Phones from Nokia yesterday morning at Nokia World, and there has been a bunch of information, blogs, tweets, press releases, etc. since then. Maybe you’ve been online and following all of the excitement; however, I know not everyone has been able to (as I’ve been getting pinged for links, info, etc.), so I am putting up a quick post here with links and access to several of the items from yesterday so you know where to find them.

Take a look at two of the Nokia Windows Phones shown off at Nokia World 2011:
