Nokia 800 and Sea Ray might be two different Windows Phone handsets

Nokia 800 and Sea Ray might be two different Windows Phone handsets
It was only a few days ago when we were examining Elbert Perez's game stats page under the microscope. Back then, the Nokia 800 had managed to find its spot in the developer's database, and it seemed logical to assume that the Nokia Sea Ray was hiding behind this three-digit model number. Things have grown a bit more complicated since then, however, as now both the 800 and the Sea Ray stand next to each other in that very same chart leading us to believe that we are actually dealing with two different devices.

So, is Nokia getting ready to release not one but two Windows Phone handsets this year and is the manufacturer already testing them before their debut? We know that the Sea Ray is scheduled for release in 2011, but the rest of the Nokia Windows Phone gang is not likely to hit the market sooner than 2012. On the other hand, the year's end seems to be far enough to allow for another Mango-flavored smartphone to roll out of Nokia's workshop.

The Nokia 800 and Sea Ray both listed on Elbert Perez's game stats page

Still, there might be another explanation for this mystery. The Nokia 800 and the Sea Ray might still be one and the same with the former being a final model of the device and the latter being merely an early prototype. After all, the manufacturer announced that it will start using numbers again when naming its hansets, and the Sea Ray moniker is nothing but a code name.

This, of course, is just a guess so it would be wise taking it with a grain of salt until further details emerge. If you would like to make your own prediction as of what the Nokia 800 will be, feel free to do so by dropping a comment below.

I too expect these Nokia handsets to be outstanding. What WP7 needs is a top tier Nokia phone all wrapped up in some Mango goodness & it WILL sell. WP7 Mango is an outstanding OS & it deserves an outstanding vicious handset to go with it. I am keeping a VERY close EYE on WP7 and all the handsets that are coming with it. ESPECIALLY NOKIA with their sexy cameras & all!

I'll bet you that WP7 won't sell even with Nokia and Mango ; )
I'm serious, i believe that WP7 won't sell and the reason for that is the UI. Yes, most people that have WP7 like it, but that is also the reason they bought it.

I've talked with several people about WP7, and they all thought that WP7 had a ugly UI with all the square tiles, and i think that's the reason that it doesn't sell.

Anyway let's see what happens to WP7 : )

Want to add one thing.
I don't have anything against WP7, i just personally don't like it because of the UI and lack of functions.

Yes Peter but the Mango update promises 500 new features so the UI & lack of functions like you say will benefit drastically from this. I promise. Let's see what WP7 Mango is about before we label it like you constantly do!

Agree, we should wait and see how the update will be like.

that's ok peter, if you don't like it don't tell everybody that you don't. Some people may feel offended by your bad comments about WP7, cause as you said some people like WP7 and I personally think that there is no need to let everybody know that you don't like it.

Nokias gonna have to put out an amazing phone to beat out Samsung`s SGH-i937, the supposed WP7.5 version of the Galaxy S II. If that is the only phone with a front facing camera, it will probably be the only phone I`ll even look at. But heres hopen that Nokia puts out a 12mp camera or better with the carl zeiss optics.

I REALLY hope this is true! A 1.5 Gigahertz processor?!? That's unheard of! Also the "Non-removable battery is good (Especially if it's like the N8 and it's removable with a screw driver, because then it's removable, but wont fall of if you drop the phone etc.) The 32 GB memory is also nice although unnecessary (I have a X6 with 32GB and use only about 3-4 GB).

As I am fairly sure (not like put money on it sure, or anything like that) we on the U.S. are not first on the Nokia release wish list, so I may have to wait and here from everyone second hand how they do. I wish we could get some Mango-Nokia love, but I truly believe Nokia is first going to go after getting their lost market share back like a rabid boar, and that would be everywhere else but here. But, I hope MS and Nokia get this right. It is the keys to the kingdom if they do. Gonna be really, really tragic for them both if they do not. I am on the side of them knocking it out of the park.
