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.

Bullocks. Win7 was faster because they rewrote huge chunks of code and streamlined it. What features did they yank to magically enable gains across the board? Go ahead and try to get a Vista install running as fast and reliable as Win7, remove whatever components you want, it still isn't going to be as good. You have no idea how much effort they put into their software. Look at all the software teams full of talented people that they have working on Win8, and you might get a clue.
WP 7.5 "Mango" runs faster and better than previous versions, on the same hardware. With MORE features, not less. I still might end up getting a new Android phone, I don't know yet, but you're blind if you can't see how much MS has improved their situation through software optimization alone.

Read anand's review and you will see what they did to make it faster. That and even before win7 they made vista faster with service packs. Winxp was slower than 2k, 98 wasn't so bad from 95, and of course vista sucked. Sure, hardware speeds increased too so that isn't so bad.
I run 2.2 on my htc magic, but it runs quicker due to a radio edit giving it more free ram (that took a lot of work to get on there). The G2 wasn't bad either in the speed department. It isn't just resources, but priority settings and how much you want running in the background.
I want WP7 to succeed but it just doesn't look like it will. Nokia never bothered to be successful here either with high end smartphones, so I doubt they will change anything.
And by the way, it's "bollocks".
