Microsoft leaks upcoming WP-powered Nokia Sabre

Microsoft leaks upcoming WP-powered Nokia Sabre
Have you ever heard of the Nokia Sabre? Neither have we, but Microsoft took it for common knowledge and incidentally leaked the handset in the terms and conditions of a competition rules page posted by Microsoft Canada. 

Watchful entrants noticed the blunder, which has now been removed from the T&C page, but initially it read:

"The type of Windows Phone 7.5 will vary and will be selected at Microsoft’s choosing (examples include Samsung Yukon, Samsung Wembley, Nokia Searay and Nokia Sabre). Wireless carrier and wireless service not included. Activation terms and conditions are at the sole discretion of the phone manufacturer and wireless carrier."

We’ve previously heard about the Nokia Searay, which will allegedly have the same body as the Nokia N9, but flavored with Windows Phone Mango juices. The Nokia Sabre however remains mysterious - we have not a single detail except for the name of the device. There were however some past rumors about a 3.7” Nokia phone supporting a micro SIM card.

While we don’t when is it coming, chances are that it will land with the first wave of Nokia Windows Phone handsets this Holiday season. Nokia’s chief executive himself confirmed that the Finns are way on track to outing the handset by the end of the year.

What do you mean by crap? Crap is the cheap plastic and ugly design in your GSII.

Nokia makes one of the best build quality phones. May be heavy but like what he said ^^ its not cheap plastic crap.

although i love the sgs2, and i currently own one, id rather have a galaxy s2 made out of aluminum, rather than having the thinnest (international available) device made out of plastic. for me the design is beautiful (except for the plastic), i dont agree with some people saying its ugly. i just think samsung could have done a better job when it comes to build quality.(like htc, nokia)

That's not cheap plastic. That's policarbonate material, far superior than the cheap plastic that Samsung uses.

nokia is the most inconsistent phone manufacturer in the world. lack of support & confusion. Tell me something fanboy: how happy is a customer that invest money money on a device that in six months get lack of support? The 900, N95, E72, just to mention a few have been excellent handsets, but because of mediocre support users have fallen into frustration. One upon a time I owned all there previous devices mentioned & yes I'm very happy with my gs2 not only because its the most advanced handset on the planet for now, but because samsung really cares about their customers. I will keep purchasing samsung so long they develop good products.

When a new flagship has been announced, Samsung will leave you and your GSII to dust just like what happened to the first Glaxy flagship device.

Its just Samsung GS2 good because Google supplemented them, Else SAMSUNG has always been pathetic at mobiles. And NOKIA has always been a world leader its just NOKIA is one holding on to its Symbian Legacy and still competiting... And with Windows I dont think Google is left with any Scope in near future.

Lemme tell u bro what you get! 1. Powerful chipset of 1.5 Ghz wasted to play idiotic Andriod Games 2. A waste 8.1 Mpx camera with which you cant upload pics on FB all at once select-upload-select-upload. (My Xperia Neo's 8.1 Mpx is way powerful, even in night times) 3. Stupid and Dumb Google maps: A.) It's Dumb so it wont ever speak like NOKIA MAPS does. B.) You cant save a place w/o having online connection. C.) You cant save a place with a name you want to save it with. 4. Android's Web Browsers are such a waste that if you switch over to another application and switch back to your Web Browser It'll load the pages from the beginning, which gets expensive and time consuming... :-( Is google idiot??

Multimedia is something that's being offered by any O&M, sorry but that is not unique.

That your beloved Galaxy s**t 2 will soon be TOTALLY FORGOTTEN by sammy as soon as the next flagship is released just like they did to the original galaxy s**t which was released at about thesame time with the n8 but can't be heard of anymore...

I hope Nokia doesn't neglect the CDMA market again.
