Nokia has released a video showing the manufacturing process for its sleek N9 phone, which may be the first Nokia Windows Phone.

 

Tomorrow, Nokia is expected to unveil its first round of Windows Phone 7.5 handsets. It’s very likely that one of them will look a lot, or identical, to the star of this video: the Nokia N9. The N9 is Nokia’s first, and last, smartphone running on MeeGo, a fledgling operating system that has already been replaced by a new open-source project called Tizen.

We’re not sure why Nokia made this video, but with a little bit of narration it could easily be featured in an episode of How It’s Made on the Discovery Channel. Watch the camera hold being drilled by a machine and the screws being inserted manually by engineers. We have to say, though its screen is a bit small at 3.7 inches, the N9 is a good looking phone. We hope that one of Nokia’s offerings is the N9 and that the company is able to get decent distribution here in the United States.

Nokia will unveil its long-awaited Windows Phone-powered handsets tomorrow morning, but that hasn’t kept leaked images showing what appears to be two new Nokia smartphones from rearing their blurry heads.

 

Just hours before Nokia is set to unveil the first of its handsets powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system, photos of two devices have apparently broken free and found their way online.

Tech blog WinRumors has received images that show two new Windows Phone handsets from Nokia, the Lumina 800 and the Lumina 710. The photos show what appears to be a screen with images of the two devices, as well as a few specs about each of the devices.

The Lumina 800, previously known as “Sea Ray,” is modeled after the Nokia N9, and appears to look nearly identical to that device. The Lumina 710, also known as the Sabre, has a more rounded design than the Lumina 800.

Here are the specs we can see from the images:

Lumina 800:

  • Dimensions: 116.5×61.2×12.1mm
  • Weight (with battery): 142g
  • RAM: 512MB
  • No microSD slot
  • Idle time 390hrs (on 2G GSMA), 380 hrs (on 3G GMS)
  • Talk time: 5 hrs (on 3G GSM)
  • Music playback time: 50 hrs

Lumina 710:

  • Dimensions: 119×62.4×12.5mm
  • 8GB internal storage
  • no microSD slot

(The other details on the image are too blurry to read.)

So there you have it. Seeing as neither of these devices have yet been confirmed by Nokia – though we predict they will be tomorrow morning at Nokia’s big launch event – we’re not going to get too much into speculation about how these devices will fare when compared to the latest Android and Apple handsets. There will be plenty of time for that after tomorrow’s big unveiling, so stay tuned.
