The video talks about how Nokia forms a strong collaboration with Microsoft and the story behind their design. At one point, it highlights Nokia’s priority in having the best antenna reception by using materials that are RF transparent, which in this case a single polycarbonate body.
Some may argue, what is there to design since it looks exactly the same as the Nokia N9. While it is easy to point out that Nokia had slapped a WP7 Mango OS inside a N9 body, it is possible that the Lumia 800 came first. Its CEO Stephen Elop had shown a fully functional Lumia 800 internally about the same time when the N9 was announced.
So is Nokia Lumia 800 the best designed WP7 around? Tell us in the comments below.

Here are the first official pictures of the Nokia 800 (aka Sea Ray), one of the first Nokia Windows Phone devices soon to be launched.
The 800 adopts an identical design language to the Nokia N9 with a tough polycarbonate body, curve glass screen and a 3.7-inch AMOLED Clear Black Display. Being a Windows Phone device, the Nokia 800 brings with it the obligatory trio of capacitive navigation buttons as opposed to the button-less design on the N9.
Specs include a 1.4GHz processor, 16GB of storage, an 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a 1,540 mAh battery
The 800 is expected to be unveiled at Nokia World 2011 happening next week in London. We’ll keep you posted on any developments till then.
One more picture after the jump.
Major tech blogs are saying that this is legit evidence of the existence of a Nokia Windows Phone. This particular Nokia N9-based device is codenamed “Sea Ray” and is running the latest Mango build of Windows Phone 7.
The other major difference between the N9 and this “Sea Ray” device is the inclusion of hardware buttons for the obligatory Windows Phone navigation (back, Windows home key and search) along with a dedicated camera shutter button. Could this mean that a Nokia Windows Phone is looking ready to go before the end of this year? Your guess is as good as ours.
