Nokia 800 promo video leaks, first camera samples appear on Flickr

Nokia 800 promo video leaks, first camera samples appear on Flickr
Nokia has been inserting short video teasers in between TV ads across UK for its upcoming Windows Phones, and last night one was caught on tape during the X-Factor show airing.

It appears to be of the Nokia 800 handset, codenamed internally the Sea Ray, and expected to be unveiled on Wednesday in London during Nokia World, where the keynote speech is reserved for CEO Stephen Elop.

Meanwhile, a few snaps from the phone's rumored eight megapixel camera (most likely the same module that is in the Nokia N9) have emerged on Flickr. Two shots are of Lake Hodges near San Diego, California, where one of Nokia's main research centers is.

i think the cameras on N9 and this new 800 don't deserve to be Carl Zeiss. The pictures come out bluish. i support Sony Xperia line after seeing the camera on Iphone4s

I agree with you but 4GS also has annoying tint yellow tint, lack of depth and detail issues. Compared to N8 this 800 and N9 is a wee bit artificial in terms of color and detail is close but this blue tint and whitish contrast distort the picture a little. Overall, it is on par with most 8mp high end smartphones and an update may be produced to polish their performance just like it did to the N8.

Its bluish because maybe the sky is blue.

You don't understand. Blue tint to the images has been somewhat of a Nokia trait in their images, much like the ultra enhanced colors of Apple iPhones.

Not so good...but I think it will eventually be better. N9 photos are really good (in the review of Engadget, not the reviewof phonearena...strange, but real - unit with problems ?). Why 800's photos wouldn't be the same ?

I really like the look and styling of this unit, and I sooo want my next phone to be Windows, but I just can't get past the loss of screen real estate to accomodate the 'swipe arrow' on the home screen. It just makes me feel cheated in this world of gigantic screenns. Make the swipe gesture a button click or embedded in the screen if you can, but don't slice off 1/5 of my home screen displaying only blackness and a small arrow.

@fleanote - that empty space exists on all phones. Windows just puts it all in one place so you can scroll up and down and to your icons list without accidentally opening a front page tile. Think about it. Android and Apple both have empty space all over their screen. It's just in between the icons and not all over to one side. Who knows...if you add up the "non space" on an Android phone screen you may actually have more unused space than there is on a Windows Phone.

I would agree, but the difference with Android, is the spacing is uniform so it looks more normal. I'd almost rather they extended the size of the tiles on the 2nd and third row to go all the way to teh right just to keep folks like me as potential buyers. Why not put the flick arrow at the top center and then expand the tiles to cover the entire screen - it would also make the displays look larger with no center spacing like Android.
