There’s little doubt at this point that Nokia (NYSE: NOK) intends to introduce its first Windows Phone devices Wednesday at Nokia World, but what will they look like, and what kind of features will they have? Some last-minute leaks might have shed more light on a new era for Nokia.
WinRumors reported Tuesday that Nokia is gearing up to launch two phones with the Lumia brand on Wednesday, the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710. If this is accurate, we’ve seen the Lumia 810 before in a video released by Nokia promoting a device code-named “Sea Ray,” a phone that looks quite a bit like the MeeGo-based N9.
As expected, WinRumors said the two phones will launch in Europe before the holiday season crowd and come to the U.S. at a later date. This is an important launch for Nokia, which hasn’t had a product that has made the mobile world sit up and take notice in years. Will that change tomorrow?
