Nokia only recently announced that they were totally gung-ho about keeping the pricing of their WP7 devices just right, so as to focus on volume. They also just announced a couple of new handsets viz. the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 for the global market, which the Indian consumer can expect to see on shelves, sometime in mid-December. In a recent post on mynokiablog.com, a video (that has now become “Private”) was posted showcasing a promo of what could be yet another Windows Phone handset from the Finnish company.
A mysterious new device?
Agreed, the device, dubbed the Nokia 900, does look vaguely akin to the Symbian powered Nokia 700 that’s been showcased in Nokia’s NFC ad that’s been running on TV. However, it certainly is sleeker and like WP7 devices doesn’t seem to have any physical buttons under the display, but features the Windows Phone touch sensitive keys. It does look like it has a much larger display, which is being estimated to be about 4-inches with a sleeker grill running at the bottom.
The smartphone arena is going to get seriously intense with the likes of an old favorite make a comeback but the big question is – Will this be enough to dig Nokia out of the little hole it’s been sitting in for awhile? It certainly looks like they’re giving it their all so let’s wait and see.
