New "Sun" handset appears to be branded "Sea Ray"
Months ago Nokia Oyj. (
unveiled the "Sea Ray"
in a private press conference that, of course, leaked onto the internet. While the phone was unremarkable hardware-wise for a smartphone, the fact that it ran Microsoft Corp.'s (
) Windows Phone 7 made it kind of a big deal.
Now more secret Nokia Windows Phone 7 handset info has leaked. Leaked documents reveal a phone branded the "Nokia Sun". Nokia doesn't usually brand its products with real world names, so clearly this is a special event.
The Sun features a(n):
1.4GHz single-core processor
16GB flash storage
3.7" AMOLED screen
Micro SIM card
Polycarbonate unibody design
...according to the internal Orange France (
) internal document that

These specs mean that it's likely the branded version of Sea Ray. The document indicates that it will be available in week 46 (S46) -- the week of November 7.
have indicated more coming Nokia WP7 handsets including the "Nokia Lumia 800" and the "Nokia 703". Hopefully these handsets pack a bit more of a punch as a small screen single core smartphone isn't exactly keeping pace with
the little monsters
Google, Inc.'s (
) Android hardware partners are cooking up these days.
Hopefully Nokia also speeds up its pace of deployment. Nokia still plans to transition its entire lineup to using Windows Phone 7, but the company is moving a languid pace, being just about the last company to deploy a
Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango"
handset. That slow response is costing Nokia dearly as customers abandon its defunct Symbian platform and have no current option but to jump to rival handsets.

I've been waiting for something other than the HTC Trophy to hit Verizon, since it launched in May 2011 it was already a bit dated. Preferably something with a larger screen. But with the "Galaxy Nexus" inbound within the next few weeks, they're making that a bit hard. Also, Nokia has had a hell of a time recently penetrating the U.S. market, hopefully this will change that.
