Besides adopting much of its design language from the “boutique” N9, it now looks like the upcoming Nokia 800 Windows Phone 7 will also come in the same trio of colors as its Meego-powered linemate. New imagery, which gives us the best look yet at a phone tipped to launch next week at London’s Nokia World conference, shows the 3.7-inch handset sporting shades of black, blue, and pink.
Recent evidence suggests that the 800 (codenamed Searay) — and possibly as many as two other devices — will launch just weeks after its debut; we’ve heard that November 15th is the date to watch. Unfortunately for Nokia (and, by proxy, Microsoft), its flagship Windows Phone will likely drop into an ecosystem habitated by just-announced, and much more powerful, Android offerings in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Droid Razr. The Nexus, in particular, should probably give Redmond some second thoughts about the somewhat slow progression of its hardware requirements for the year-old platform.
