Last week we saw some unofficial leaked images of the upcoming
Nokia Windows Phone line-up, but over the weekend, eagled-eyed viewers will have
spotted teaser ads for the Nokia 800 ahead of its launch in two days time.
The Nokia 800, formally known as the Sea Ray, is set to be very similar to the N9 handset
which has been released in a limited number of countries, and teaser ads, which
were aired on ITV in the UK
on Saturday and Sunday during the X-Factor and Harry Hills TV Burp, seem to confirm this.
The fact that Nokia would preview one of its handsets prior to
it being officially launched indicates that the Finnish company will be making
a big push with the new Windows Phone handsets, looking at them as its last
chance to make a serious impact in the smartphone market.
Nokia World will be taking place in London in two days time, and when CEO,
Stephen Elop, takes to the stage at 9am on Wednesday morning all indications
point to a trio of Windows Phone handsets being unveiled, with the Nokia Sabre
and Nokia Ace joining the 800.
The teaser adverts themselves don’t give away much detail
about the new phone, except that the styling does indeed look very similar to
the N9 – which we say is no bad thing.
While the video here is 12 seconds long, the teasers were in
fact just couple of seconds long, and have been pasted together by the guys at
We will, of course, be on the ground at Nokia World to bring
you all the latest news as it happens and give our opinion on Nokia’s first Windows
Phone handsets when we finally get our hands on them.
