Nokia 800 Preview
The Nokia 800, previously known as the Searay, will be Nokia's debut Windows Phone Mango device, as outed by the firm's head-honcho Stephen Elop himself.
Essentially, the Nokia 800 is a re-jigged version of the Nokia N9. Featuring the same "pillow-like" design as its older brother, it's likely to come boasting the same 9.4mm skinniness and the same 135g weight. Unlike its MeeGo-toting brother however, it'll come equipped with 3 capacitive Windows keys - offering one touch access to Menu, Back and Search.
Although unconfirmed, we can expect the 800 to sport the same 3.9-inch (800 x 480 pixels) curved AMOLED screen as its N9 sibling too, alongside the same 1GHz processor under the hood. However, this display will come dressed in Microsoft's Mango (Windows Phone 7.1) OS - equipping the smartphone with Xbox Live gaming, Microsoft Office, Facebook and Twitter integration and built-in GPS (likely to be powered by Nokia Maps).
What is confirmed, however, is that the self-styled "people-centric" smartphone will arrive sporting an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera, complete with Carl Zeiss optics and Xenon flash. This'll also be capable of capturing 720p HD footage, which can be fired straight off to Facebook and YouTube.
Although not mentioned through Elop's slip-up, we can also expect to see all the usual connectivity options (HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth), integrated NFC smarts, and either 16GB or 64GB models.
Once released, we're assuming that the Nokia 800 - which may be renamed the Nokia W9 - to launch in Black, Cyan and Magenta flavours.
The handset's pricing and release date is still to be confirmed, although it's likely to get official in Q3 2011.
