Microsoft's Joe Marini tweets Nokia Windows Phone has slick looks, wishing for a bigger screen
On a question how would he rate it on the 1-10 scale, he answered: "Overall I would say an 8. Solid feel, good camera, responsive UI, and nice little touches on the body construction".
The guy insisted to know what's holding it back from 9 or 10, and if the camera was as good as rumored, so Joe Martini shed some more light: "Yeah, the camera was good, but I didn't have optimal lighting. I'd like a larger screen too."
From these tweets, and Nokia's clarifications that it won't be ready with a truly high-end WP device this year, we can speculate that the Nokia Windows Phone (s) that will be announced in October will probably hover in the mid-range category, similar to the Nokia 703 rumor we saw the other day.
"I'd like a larger screen" might mean anything, and most likely something below 4", while "slickest looking" could imply this full-colored polycarbonate the Nokia N9 is using, and which Nokia's design head said will be in a lot of the company's phones from now on, but let's not get ahead of ourselves before Nokia World on October 26.
