It seems as if Nokia is planning on releasing more than one Windows
Phone 7 handset when they finally see the light of day later this month, with the Nokia Sun the
latest handset rumoured to be joining the WP7 party.
According to an up-coming release list from Orange
France, nabbed by French website Mon Windows Phone, the Nokia Sun is set to be released
in the second week of November and will be a more budget-friendly handset of
We saw last week that the Nokia Searay and Nokia Sabre will be among the launch handsets for the nascent Nokia
and Microsoft partnership, and it looks as if Nokia is not settling for just a
couple of new handsets.
The Nokia Sun is set to have a 3.7in screen with a 1.4GHz
processor and 16GB of storage via a microSD card. It will also have an 8
megapixel camera and features a micro-SIM card slot we’ve come to know from the
iPhone 4. It will of course run the Windows Phone Mango (7.5) OS.
With the details surrounding Nokia’s WP7 handset line-up
still shrouded in mystery, what we could of course be talking about here is
either the Searay or the Sabre, just with a different name. But we would hope that Nokia will be bringing
an array of hardware for customers to choose from when they do launch in a
couple of weeks.
We will know all once Nokia World kicks off on 26 October
and we’ll be bringing you all the details as they happen.
