We’re all anticipating Nokia’s first Windows Phone handset. Even those who aren’t interested in purchasing one are eager to see what it’ll be like, what it’ll be capable of, and whether or not it has any chance of competing with the hottest smartphones on the market right now.
According to this screenshot of an internal product list from Orange France, Nokia’s first Windows Phone handset will be named the Nokia Sun, and it looks very promising. According to the screenshot, there’s some impressive specifications under its hood.
That includes a 1.4GHz processor, a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display, 16GB of internal storage, and an 8-megapixel camera. There’s also a microSD card slot for expanding that storage by an additional 32GB.
While we’ve already heard a lot about the Nokia Sea Ray, the Sabre and the Ace, and it’s unclear at this point whether the Nokia Sun is a completely new device, or just the retail name for the Sea Ray or the Sabre.
If it is the latter, then it’s more likely to be the retail name for the Sea Ray, as the Sabre is only expected to pack 8GB of internal storage. Either way, we should know by November 7, which is when that Orange France document says the device will launch.
That’s certainly a realistic launch date, with Nokia’s first Windows Phone devices expected to get their unveiling at Nokia World on October 26 and 27.
Does the Nokia Sun sound like a Windows Phone handset that you’d be interested in?
