Windows Phone-flavored Nokia 703 leaks out, blurry cam pictures test our detective abilities

Windows Phone-flavored Nokia 703 leaks out, blurry cam pictures test our detective abilities
Why, hello there images of what could be the first Nokia Windows Phone! Posing for the blurrycam, the Nokia 703 seems to have already been shown at a carrier presentation and could well be the first fruit of the Microkia partnership, so we’ve reached out for our Sherlock Holmes magnifying glass to reveal all the details. 

Now, let's first mention that this could be just a fake image, but given the fact that just yesterday folks over at WPCentral found out about a Nokia 703 showing up in the "I'm a WP7" app, it seems credible. Save for a missing button on the right, the Nokia 703 looks very much like the previously leaked Nokia Sea Ray, which in turn mimics the MeeGo-powered Nokia N9. But it’s the filling of this blue candy of a phone that will determine its success in Windows Phone land, so what does the barely legible text read? 

Windows Phone-flavored Nokia 703 leaks out, blurry cam pictures test our detective abilities
It seems that the Nokia 703 won’t be featured in the slimmest phone race as it looks like it’s profile measures at 0.48 inches (12.3mm). The weight is where our detective abilities failed as it could be 154g, 134g or something different altogether - help us out if you manage to discern the exact number!

A 3.7-inch LCD screen with 480x800 pixels of resolution dominates the front, while on the back there is a 5-megapixel autofocus camera capable of 720p video capture at 30fps. Under the hood, 8GB storage and 512MB RAM help power Windows Phone Mango. 

Otherwise, no cutting edge specs here, are there? Will the colorful looks and curvy design be enough to get you interested in this possibly first Nokia Mango device?

But at least they're putting out some nice design and not copying others and obviously this a mid range device.

It could potentially fail if specs are sub-par compared to the competition, although Nokia fans will still flock to buy this one no doubt. . .

Not only am i a bada fan, i'm a nokia fan as well and i won't be buying this device. Nice design on the outside, but as soon as you turn the screen on you only get live tiles : (

WP7 doesnt need monster specs to run. It was designed to run smooth as butter on a snapdragon chipset, which is a weak chip to begin with.

The average consumer wont care as long as it works well, has apps (which it still needs more), and has good battery life. Price it at $100 bux on contract and it should sell decently.

Hopefully their next phone will be high end.. lol :)

That's what makes the OS lag and unstable when not done correctly. I'm not a programmer but all my college friends tell me that Android it not stable because of the CODE and that it kinda runs on a Java virtual machine. In case you didn't know Oracle sued google because of the inappropriate use of Java.

bada has widgets and it is a very stable Os and a very fast OS.

yeah but I'm talking about android. Don't get me wrong I like the widgets and stuff but I realized that that's not good for the phone's performace.

Why do you think iOS doesn't have that, because if not done correctly, it makes the phone lag. Microsoft knows what they're doing just give it some time for the OS to evolve.

maybe you should get over "the live tiles" stuff, go and read the Wave 3 articel a few more times, or flick around your homescreens on bada... :D :P

this is a serious and clear OS not some kind of playground for kids like droid or bada.

and probably Nokia will reach out for the cheap category with this series. and with this. they can get performance with quality and elegance for cheap. it's sad that most of the people fall for s**tty eyecandies and laggy experience instead of the above said.

ok, how is WP7 a "serious OS" when it does less than android? It even has less office functionality which is MS's strong point. .lol

flame bada and iOS, leave the robot out of it. :)

You can't even make a powerpoint presentation in WP7, i can do that with my bada phones on Picsel smart office.

That's not true, I've seen people doing it and even controlling remotely the powerpoint presentation on a computer.

You can read powerpoints on WP7 phones, but you can't make new ones. I believe you can edit powerpoints in WP7, but not make new ones.

Looks like you haven't been watching youtube videos lately. I've seen all that trust me.

I don't watch youtube at all : )
Maybe it's coming with mango, but that function did not exist with NoDo.

bada can do more than both WP7 and IOS can do. Only Android can do more at the moment.
= bada is not a playground OS.
= WP7 = beta OS

Hey bud, go actually play with a WP7 and open apps and let me know if it lags. Wait, it does. Scrolling on Facebook, watching any kind of flash is nom-existent on a WP7 device. Yeah, your two screen live tiles wont lag, but all of the apps lag worse than Android. Do me a favor and look at the GSII and let me know if it lags in ANY CATEGORY. Even with live wallpapers, it is smooth as butter. And as far as a "real OS" goes, who has more sales than Android? NOT WP7, 3 million phones in 55 days (GSII) is more than WP7 will sell in an entire year. And those facts are completely backed up, even over PhoneArena.

Compare those sales to the very first Android phones that came out in 2008, and then let me know.

I'm not talking about then, I'm talking about now. If they can get WP7 to do everything Android can do, better, then sure, I'll buy one with no problem. And this phone platform has been out for 2 years now? How long do you expect an OS to be labeled as "just starting out"? Android has been out for only 1.5 - 2 years longer. What you see now with WP7 probably wont change as much as you think. Not to mention you can get of these new ports and customization with Android. Just saying. It wont and never will be as popular as Android. I don't really care what OS I use, but I want top notch specs and performance, regardless of what is running on it. Put Microsoft XP on it for all I care.

If you want good specifications, maybe have a look at the Wave3, 1.4 ghz processor, 4 inch superamoled display, GPS + Glonass, metal and glass body... : )

Microsoft has a lot of experience on developing OS. Everything I see on WP7 Mango works better than on any other OS. Ex: the messaging integration, the xbox live integration, the windows live integration, the iternet explorer 9 is flawles, the Office package the is best, plus the Metro UI makes it even better.

To be honest, I've used my Evo to watch a .GIF image, and then pulled the same image on a focus (w/ Mango), and it still didn't pick it up as fast as my Evo did, that was pretty crappy to me. All this hype about HTML 5 and how it is soooo much better was BS. And you can have integration just like WP7 on an Android, it is just in a different form. Example: I can use Widgets with multiple screens, resizable widgets (GSII respectively), and I am getting counters on my icons just like WP7. And those counters are even in my app drawer if I don't put them on my homescreen. I realize it is simple, but everything just isn't there yet.

Umm I have to see that myself, Microsoft is investing a lot of money on WP7, so it's just matter of time until it becomes one of the best OS if not the best.

WP7 does not lag in the OS, but as you say there are apps that lag. I've had WP7 and there has been apps that has been lagging.
However, the Galaxy S2 is not perfect either. It's the best Android, but it is still not as smooth and fast as my phones with bada (using 1 ghz hummingbird)
