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.
According to the Nokia conversations website “Finns are the fourth largest nationality among Conversations readers. Given that there’s only 5.3 million people in the country, that makes it the highest readership-per-capita in the world by a long way. Nokia’s Finnish heritage and key place in the country’s economy made it a natural choice for our next language edition.”
This translation makes a lot of sense now that the Finns are the same blokes who actually engineer the Nokia range of mobile phones. Read more »
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 »
