Nokia gave the first official peek at the Nokia 800 Windows Phone with a commercial on British TV (below). The clip essentially confirms its N9-inspired design, including the slightly curved display. Windows Phone itself isn't shown, although the tiled background directly lines up with a leaked ad campaign.
A photo of a prototype Nokia handset, the Sabre, has been shared by PocketNow. The handset, first seen mentioned in a Canadian contest, will run on Windows Phone, with the source pointing out that a 1.4GHz chip (a Snapdragon) will power it. There is otherwise 1GB of RAM onboard, along with a relatively small 3.5-inch, 480x800 screen.
Some of the last remaining details of the Nokia 800 have slipped out through a leak Wednesday. The company's first Windows Phone, better known as the Sea Ray, has shown up at PocketNow and largely confirms that the prototype seen earlier is the same that users will get at stores. It also shows references to Nokia Navigation and Nokia Music that support Nokia's claims it will have some control over what ships out of the box.
The Nokia 800 (Sea Ray) has apparently surface in promotional material ahead of its launch. The phone pictured in the latest leak closely resembles a previous leak of the Windows Phone 7 handset first seen at the end of September. It is also very similar in design to Nokiaís one-off MeeGo N9 handset.
Two new Windows Phone handsets have appeared on the scene. WPCentral has gleaned some revealing information while monitoring Occasional Gamer's stats page. The Webpage tracks gaming by both the games being played and also the phones on which they are being played. Listed amongst the phones being used were two new entries, the Nokia Lumia 800 and the Samsung Monument.
At a technology fair in Helsinki this week, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop reiterated that the company will introduce several Windows Phone handsets this quarter. The company is expected to formally unveil at least one of its new Nokia Windows Phone 7 models at the upcoming Nokia World trade show in London. Leaks show Nokia has developed at least two Windows Phone handsets, known by their internal codenames "Sea Ray" and "Sabre."
Microsoft inadvertently spoiled plans for not one but two Nokia phones through a Canadian contest entry (since changed). A Windows Phone 7.5 App Challenge offered the winner one of four Windows Phones going by their codenames, including the Nokia Sea Ray and a previous uncorroborated second model, the Sabre. The second phone is expected to be a smaller, slightly lower end phone with a 3.7-inch screen and the need for a micro SIM card.
Nokia signalled that it was getting close to its first Windows Phone hardware by quietly posting its first official software. App Highlights (Zune link), a portal that curates Nokia's picks for local and worldwide apps, has been posted to the store this week without the option of an actual download. It may be written specifically to support the Mango update as it will post news of updates on the home screen, relfecting Mango's better support of home tiles.
Microsoft has likely forced out one of its program managers for discussing details of Nokia's first Windows Phone. Web platform lead Joe Marini in a series of Twitter updates didn't provide device details but did describe his subjective experiences. Rating it an eight out of ten, Marini said the phone was one of the "slickest-looking" Nokia phones yet and had a "solid feel, good camera, [and a] responsive UI."
