Upcoming WP7 smartphone from Nokia will "blow your socks off"

Upcoming WP7 smartphone from Nokia will
Looking at Nokia’s handset portfolio over the course of the last few years, there’s no arguing that they can whip up some exciting and unbelievable looking phones that keeps design on their priority list. And knowing that they’re jumping into the Windows Phone 7 game, we’re naturally quite eager to see what they can pull from under their sleeve to really present a flagship phone for Microsoft’s budding mobile platform.

As we know, Nokia will be manufacturing a Windows Phone 7 handset with Mango aboard for the ride, but interestingly enough, it seems that it’s going to be something so much more than what we expect. Specifically, Nokia’s Senior Training Consultant, Dave Trevaskus, couldn’t keep his excitement all to himself as a quick Twitter post shows us how much of an impact this upcoming device has on him. From the looks of it, the Mango flavored handset “will blow your socks off.”

Upcoming WP7 smartphone from Nokia will "blow your socks off"
Bold words indeed, but there’s naturally going to be a lot of buzz surrounding it either way – albeit, Nokia will surely need to bring something to the game to really shake things up. In terms of hardware, all of the WP7 devices out there sport similar internals – meaning, Nokia has to go above and beyond with other aspects in order to stand out and be regarded as the premier WP7 handset maker.

If there is one phone really worth buying before this year end, without having to worry about quality, it must be that first high-end Nokia WP7 device that comes out. They must have done SO much testing and tweaking around this phone to be absolutely sure it works flawlessly and amazes everyone (considering all eyes will be on that very first device). It'll be a phone really worth your money :-)

To be honest, Nokia has a bad track record when it comes to phone software (Even the Nokia N8 freezes)and so does Nokia with its Windows mobile.

Let's wait and see if they can redeem themselves with a new handset. I sincerely hope that you are right, but past events make me a bit skeptical.

Please have dual-core on board with 4.3 inch display with front facing camera with 4G LTE for Verizon also. Waiting for a nice WP7 for Verizons 4G network.

new display technologies can have screens with smaller bezels. last years 4.3 inch phones are bigger than this years 4.3 inch phones. The galaxyS is a great example of that. The galaxy1 with its 4 inch screen is nearly the same size as the galaxy2 with its 4.3 inch screen.

Dual core, 1gb ram, front camera, rear camera same as the n8 or better, retina display level PPI, NFC, makes a great expresso and cooks breakfast.

That will "blow my socks off".

And the fins got it wrong. Its "knock your socks off".

And on that note....down with BADA OS!!

A company is excited about its products. How very unusual. A technology company is very excited about a product which isn't yet being sold. Even more unusual.

One thing WP7 Phones havve been missing are good cameras, hope it has a good camera which Nokias always have.
My next phone is most probably gonna be a Nokia WP7 handset.
This is the change that Nokia needed!

This better be a good phone. There were earlier such announcements from Nokia with a noble intention to woe the discerning buyer but it failed miserably. Nokia is supreme in terms of hardware (except for a flawed decision to toy around with the board in the N8 which resulted in power management issues) and all it needs is a solid performing OS that promises to deliver goods and its updates every now and then and flawlessly. Mango shows immense promise and am giving the man Dave his due for making such a bold statement. Fingers crossed - hope Nokia regains lost 'appeal' with WP7 phones.

Like the idea of W7. But so far, none of the hardware has really grabbed me. Nokia has my attention. Can you convince me NOT to buy a high end Droid?

they have always said they hoped to get a device out this calendar year. I also think the first ones will be with stock Mango, but the next ones will have more Nokia customization.

hope its not just full of hot air! but still hope it will be a success so there will be more competition and more competition means better features at lower price. and remyrz is right, stop releasing tweets or teasers or press release, release the damn phone.

Nokia WP7 for $100? that will blow everything off,including everybody's underwear!!!

Nokia WP7 for $100 would be insane... naked people trying to hide everywhere, underwear hanging from every flagpole, cats and dogs living together... and at that pricepoint, you would start to see the same effects in emerging markets, too!

Yeah, I would laugh SO hard if they don't even show off a WP7 Nokia design... I mean, Dave never mentions that it is a handset at all! Maybe it will just be a demo of some WP7-oriented software performance, or a Nokia-proprietary WP7 app... maybe that's all it takes to "blow off" Dave's socks!

30. hepresearch (unregistered)


aw... crud, well I stand corrected. Dave did say "device"... but is he talking about a literal device or something else? I guess we won't really know until then. If they reveal anything other than a WP7 Mango handset, I will laugh hard. If they show off a very ordinary WP7 Mango handset, I will probably laugh much harder.

Im actually getting pretty excited about this. I haven't liked any of Nokia's moves but using different handsets I am actually yearning to go back to a handset that actually has good call quality.

Best sound quality and best screen that all I needed in a smartphone, 16mp camera and 64 gb memory in smartphone cannot replace a stand alone camera because I throw away my phone every 2 years after I renew my contract. My camera I will keep it about 5 years or longer until it break, smartphone cannot replace stand alone camera or netbook.

This is the first time for a very long time that i have been interested in a Nokia phone.
i like what i see on Windows and i think the update to the software will make it even better. the one reason i havent bought one is because all the handsets look the same which is boring.

Everyone knows that Nokia can bring good hardware i am expecting a 4inch screen good on board storage and processor and not to much plastic.
