First ads for the Nokia 800 Windows Phone leak

First ads for the Nokia 800 Windows Phone leak
That leaked Nokia Sea Ray from the summer is shaping to be quite the amorphous handset, at least in terms of the title it will take in different markets. We saw it as the Sea Ray in a T-Mobile skit, then as the Nokia Sun in the Orange France roadmap, and now its look-a-like is strutting stuff under the Nokia 800 moniker in leaked ads.

We also have a the Nokia Sabre codename, of course, which is expected to sport a similar design but different screen size than the phone with the Sea Ray nick.

In any case, the first leaked ads show that Nokia is positioning the device with the enigmatic phrase "Today the sun will rise and set. The rest is up for grabs".

No arguing here, but we'll see what tricks the Nokia Windows Phones hold before we pass any judgement. There is apparently a neat way to share photos by pressing a button on the side of the Nokia 800 (it doesn't say specifically the camera button) and tagging the snaps from the 8MP shooter, sharing them on the social networks, or loading them in albums. Nokia World is fast approaching to break the suspense.

Aside from Sony Ericsson, Nokia sure knows how to make phones very attractive. . .

WP is looking like it has the perfect partner. I so want an official roadmap from Nokia to come out. I am excited for the HTC Titan, the Samsung Focus S, and I am hopeful for the LG CDMA WP that was rumored, but these are the future of WP, and I do wish they would lead the way with releases worldwide at the Christmas season. They may not be released soon enough to help me, but they are going to be great handsets.

Nokia is the best partner for WP. Especially their slick designs and use of color are top noch. This is what will distinguish Nokia from the rest of the pack (HTC, Samsung, Moto etc). There are too many black smartphones in the market, it's all the same and very dull. It's time for slick designs and color and Nokia does this better than anyone.
HTC is trying it's best with the Radar and the Titan. Since HTC's revenue is dependent on WP for 30%, HTC will invest heavy with new desighs. But Nokia and Windows are synonimous for top quality, top grade, design and functionality. So watch out Google, the winning combination is on it's way.

Apparently you've never owned a Windows phone before the 7 OS.

Windows Phone never existed prior to WP7, that was "Windows Mobile," which those handsets were built on an entirely different (OS) platform.

Thanks, but I don't need correcting.

You can call it anything you want..."mobile"..."phone"...regardless, it still falls in the fair-to-poor quality range to me.

I'd dare say I'd own an iPhone before I'd ever buy a Microsoft-based phone again.

Correction, you DO need the correcting because you were wrong. Suck it up.

And, if you ever owned a WP7/7.5, and still feel that it sucks, it's totally respectable. But saying that it's poor quality before even using it? That's just ignorant.

Nokia is on the fringe of collapse and bet their entire farm on one lukewarm operating system.

I really don't know who is following suit here for any of the other manufacturers..

There's not much truth to your statement.
