Nokia 800 caught on camera as purported Nokia 900 spec details leak [UPDATED]Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Ready for Nokia World 2011 to kick off tomorrow? Just in case you're still not in the Nokia-Windows Phone spirit after all of the leaks we've seen recently, we've got one more to help you prepare for the London shindig. The folks at The Next Web have gotten hold of a pair of photos showing the Nokia 800/Sea Ray in the wild which show off what the N9-esque device looks like in the flesh. There's not really any new information to be gleaned from the shots, but hey, it's nice to see the 800 in the wild after it was teased in product renders and leaked ads.
The Nokia 800 isn't the only Windows Phone handset making news today, as The Nokia Blog has gotten wind of another device known as the Nokia 900. As you can see in the leaked spec sheet below, the 900 is rumored to feature a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, 1.4GHz processor, 8-megapixel camera, 1GB RAM, 512MB ROM, 16/32GB storage, NFC, 1,800mAh battery, and Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. Sounds like a pretty high-end device, no?
One other quick Nokia note: according to a report out of the Wall Street Journal, the Finnish firm has been working closely with AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile on its first Windows Phone devices. That's not quite a confirmation confirm that Nokia devices will actually end up launching on those three carriers, but it's definitely encouraging, especially considering how little Nokia love we've seen as of late on CDMA carriers like Verizon.
Overall it looks like the Nokia 800 is shaping up to be a pretty compelling device, not only because it's one of Nokia's first Windows Phone products but also because it'll offer an opportunity to handle N9-like hardware to a lot of folks that are unlikely to get the chance to actually use an N9. Meanwhile, the 900 could be the way to go for anyone that absolutely, positively needs a big ol' screen on their smartphone. Nokia World 2011 is kicking off in less than 24 hours and our own Aaron Baker will be on the ground in London to cover the whole thing live, so be sure to check back with PhoneDog tomorrow for all the news from the big event!
