The Nokia 801 has apparently been leaked. From images posted online it looks like it is going to be a very smart device. Speculators say this Nokia 801 could be a successor to the where the Nokia N9, a MeeGo device, left off.
In an interview with Juuchini and other print media journalists today 9th (February) at the iHub, Martin Gicheru of Techweez asked Stephen Elop whether the Nokia 801 exists but Stephen denied knowledge and said he wasn’t at liberty to announce product details at that particular forum. (video coming soon) He further added that any new devices would be announced in due course.
The Nokia 801 has been rumoured to run on a 1.4GHz processor with 512MB of RAM. The screen is quite standard weighing in at 4 inches, but in Clear Black display and AMOLED. This device will also come with an inbuilt NFC chip for Near Field Communication connectivity. The camera matches up to the Nokia N8’s 12MP primary camera and it can Autofocus on a 1080 pixel video as well.
We have waited for this for a long time and despite Nokia’s GM for the region, Kenneth Oyolla, flaunting one on his social timeline, you can now get yours if you live in the States as early as next month.
This baby is the only new Nokia device that runs MeeGo OS and is expected to cause a stir especially now that it hits the market alongside the much anticipated iPhone5.
It features a 3.9-inch AMOLED screen (resolution of 854 x 480 pixels) and a 1GHZ ARM processor to boost functionality of this all-gesture manipulated phone. The camera is an 8MP just like the Nokia C7-00.
A few other exciting features include;
>Operating system: Linux MeeGo
>Screen: 3.9-inch AMOLED capacitive 854 x 480 pixels
>Size: 116.45 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm
>Weight: 135 g
>Processor: ARM Cortex-A8 Model 1000 MHz TI OMAP 3630
>Graphic Processor: 2D/3D Graphics HW Accelerator with OpenGL ES 2.0 support
>Camera: 8 MP
>Talk time: up to 11 hours
>Standby time: up to 19 days
We expect it in the East African region sometime mid to late (14th – 31st) October. Expected retail is valued at 730USD (approximately 69,423KES).

On the 10th of February, NOKIA CEO Stephen Elop hinted that he had a great announcement he had for us the following day.
Some knew what it was all about while others could only speculate. A number of techies believed that Meego was being kicked to the curb or that Nokia was joining up with another company to produce their own tablet.
Well, everyone was right… at least partly.
Stephen Elop from Nokia and Microsoft Corporation CEO Steve Ballmer today announced that they had agreed upon entering into a strategic partnership affecting the two big companies in a video released on Nokia’s Youtube channel yesterday evening. This comes amid rumors that Nokia were developing a way to combat the Apple iPad that has really rocked the market in the last two quarters. This could be their chance to do just that. Read more »
