Yesterday we looked at a new video Nokia had published to YouTube, one that showed a currently-unknown Windows Phone handset. The mystery smartphone stirred up a whole mess of questions, for which we’re still looking for answers. At the time, Nokia seemed very quiet about the discovery, and the clip continued to be accessible online. Today, that original video has been withdrawn from the public eye, marked as private, and replaced with a newly-edited version showing the Lumia 800 instead.
What can we read out of this action? We mentioned the possibility that the phone in question might just be some generic placeholder graphic Nokia used when it didn’t need to talk about any one device in particular. If that’s the case, the only reason doing this swap makes any sense is if Nokia wanted to put a stop to any rumors. Problem is, if that was its motivation, doing the swap without commenting on it is just going to cause more rumors (like the ones you’re reading right now), rather than mute them. Maybe what we saw was an in-development piece of hardware, after all.
