Mysterious Nokia Windows Phone handset appears in a promotional video

Mysterious Nokia Windows Phone handset appears in a promotional video
The Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 are the company's first two Windows Phone handsets, and we are pretty familiar with them already. On the other hand, the smartphone pictured below is a device that far less is known about.

This mysterious Nokia Windows Phone handset appeared in a promotional video, which was posted on the company's developer YouTube channel. The video has been made private already, yet the eagle-eyed individual who spotted the device managed to take a screenshot while it was still available to the public.

Some speculate that the handset in the picture is the elusive Nokia 900, codenamed Ace, but we are not too sure about that. If earlier Nokia 900 leaks are to be trusted, the smartphone will have a boxier look instead of the curvy bottom the device in the photo here boasts.

Of course, we might be dealing with nothing but a placeholder image of a Windows Phone smartphone. It might also be a conceptual rendering, which is not meant to see the light of day at all. What do you, guys, think? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

UPDATE: Below is the aforementioned video. Thanks for the heads-up, Ronno!

Even Android lovers are so much crazy about Nokia phones' design that they wish for almost every Nokia phone that it had its Android equivalent, then why can't it be WP7, which the company has proudly adopted? Even 700 looks damn sexy, I myself wished for a model with a bigger screen, WP7 and the looks of 700. :)

That is a damn sexy phone. Especially if it's an aluminum body like the 800. Not enough to sway me from my Nexus fixation, but this potential Android buyer is indeed piqued.

The Nokia 800 is all in plastic...what a sad news... Now the good news : it's not a run-of-the-mill plastic..they call it "polycarbonate". IThe name is just a marketing gimmick, nobody (except ingeneers) knows what polycarbonate is...but the result is here, it's probably the best crafted phone today (along with iPhone 4S and Razr). I have a black Nokia Lumia 800, and I can assure you that if I did not KNOW it is in plastic, I would have certify everybody that my phone was in metal. It's just beautiful. And, personnally, I have a clear preference for the design of the 800 over Razr or's pure and clean, perfectly on par with WP7.

i like it. I like the color accents over the full colored body of the 800. looks less like a toy and more "high end".

I see it as a new device especially since Nokia pulled the video. Thanks Ronno for downloading it.

I Don\'t think that this phone could be 900, cuz it doesn\'t looks like have a 4.3 inch screen. Waiting for Lumia arrive in Brazil.

The promo shows Visual Studio support and Silver Light support. When did that happened?
