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
The Nokia "Sea Ray"/"Sun" is almost to the market, but Nokia is about the last major manufacturer to launch a Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango" handset. [Source: MonWindowsPhone]
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 have the old HTC magic, the second android phone ever made. It's a responsive, slick, fast as can be,
on stock firmware from google/htc.
In other words, its the HTC ION version, and that thing has a measly 192MB of ram.
It just goes to show you, you are right, but it isn't so much android, it's the crap they put on it. And they do not mandate that you have the right to remove it, so the user experience suffers.

OK but some of the Android updates have vastly improved the OS in terms of bug fixes and features. So its like you're stuck. My dad's original Droid (due for an upgrade) had all sorts of issues, that were fixed over time by updates. Unfortunetely, they also slowed the phone down. So he doesn't want to roll back, but he isn't happy with the poor responsiveness compared to the stock software. Anyway, he'll be replacing it with something several times faster, not sure if it will be an Android device or not.
Regarding manufacturer- and carrier-installed software, WP7 is much better about that sort of thing. Hmm, maybe that's why Verizon and others push the Android devices so much? They can install whatever they want on the devices, and it isn't easy for the average user to remove.
