We’ve seen what looks like the first ad for the Nokia 800 just yesterday, and now we have even more evidence confirming that the Nokia 800 is indeed the Windows Phone handset we’ve been hearing about. Indian carrier Airtel is advertizing it and the looks of the Nokia 800 mimic the ones of MeeGo-running Nokia N9.
Of course, the back, Windows and magnifying glass search buttons have been added to match the realities of Windows Phone, but except for that the 800 keeps the pillow-shaped form of the N9.
spec sheet of the Nokia 800 includes a 3.7-inch AMOLED display with a WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels). Under the hood, a 1.4GHz CPU makes Windows Phone tick. Even though it has one of the first ads for the upcoming handset, the Indian carrier Airtel won’t be getting the smartphone until Q1 2012.
For the rest - we’ll have to wait just a couple of more weeks as Nokia World on October 26th is expected to finally give us some clarity on what Nokia has been up to in the lengthy transitional months since February.
