Images and video of new Nokia Windows Phone handsets surface: leaked or faked?
Are those the upcoming Nokia Windows Phone handsets? Hard to tell, but the video and images below sent to MyNokiaBlog from a tipster claiming to be a Microsoft insider (even though using an OVI email account) look very polished and professionally done. Sure, the video below mashes together seemingly new content with old marketing stuff, including some old Microsoft Office Labs footage. But while those could be manipulated images (likely taken from the video below), hands down to the artist, who could well defend a thesis on faking pictures in Photoshop.

When it comes to the design of the phones, they carry a signature Nokia feel – with the curvy shapes of the body and colorful looks. What's more, looking at the video promo, you can instantly notice the crafty hand that's produced it. It has a somewhat typical, international/corporate Nokia message, and could hardly convince us that it's fake. Or, it could always be that same skillful artist defending a thesis on faking videos this time! The clip ends with a cut from old Microsoft footage, which is puzzling as it seems unrelated, but oh well. It's also curious to see the compass denoting Nokia Maps which we have seen before, as well as the surprising presence of Ovi branding in the images, which was earlier ditched by the Finns.

at 24 seconds in there is a shadow across the face of the phone. The camera is panning left to right, but the shadow remains exactly in the same location on the phone. That would be an amazing coincidence of the light source moving in a precise manner EXACTLY counter to the camera's POV.

Seems fishy to me, but I like what I see [sans the tacky colored lower frame on one model: keep it monochrome].

hmm, does not look like Nokia anymore.
It looks nice, but it looks like it comes from HTC or something...
Sad that ELop is trying to destroy Nokia like this.

Huh? Rly? Nokia is going all touch can't see what do you mean ... HTC or something... can't compare by any means with this pics. Nokia just will outplay anybody with this designs if they are real ... if you ware blind or living in a cave somewhere the Nokia N9 design was praised allover the internet ... yeah shame for Elop killing Nokia that way...

What i mean is that it does not look like a classic nokia phone.
the nokia N9 has that classic Nokia look, which this pictures do not.

It looks VERY nice, maybe because it doesn't look like a Nokia will be its saving grace. Nokia was struggling WAY before Microsoft was ever a thought to them. I like the NEW styling & with the WP7 OS on hand a phone like this can do some damage in the wild. I hope this is true & not some BS, because this does have a strong chance to be successful.

These concept phones already appeared on the Nokiaconversations.com website more than 4 months ago and Nokia themeself said that's how the upcoming Nokia wp7 phones will look like.

Though I have never used a Windows phone before but if the stuff here is real then there can't be two opinion that Nokia will kick some serious ass with this device.
The design has appeal as gracious as apple products.
If Nokia can really bring such phones to market (with competitive specs obviously) it can go back to retaining its old glory as the king of smart phones.

no, they should come with MeeGo. No one wants to buy them with ugly, buggy WP7 !

Peter, I don't know what you have against WP7, but it is far from ugly or buggy in my experience. Like or dislike any OS that you want, but please be honest and reasonable.

WP7 is one of the most (if not the most) stable and best phone OS-es out there. Wp7 is elegant, clear, and the most user-friendly. okay, it's not full of eyecandy like android or iOs, or even symbian, but it's 100 times more useful also.

not bad for a Nokia smartphone. picking up wp7 could be one of the best moves Nokia has made in a while
