Nokia Sea Ray: A Comparison

The market is full of Android phones with new variations coming out each day. From mid-level to high end ones, to super-phones like the Galaxy S-II & HTC Sensation. Everywhere you see on the internet there is a buzz about Android and iPhone. The Samsung vs. Apple battle of lawsuits, the Galaxy S3 vs the iPhone 5 and so on.

There’s a feeling being created (by the press) that if there’s something it’s any one of these two and that’s all. World’s renowned tech blogs and technology publications are clearly ignoring that another group is really trying hard to be ‘the one’. An example of this is the Nokia’s leaked Windows Phone 7 product code named ‘sea ray’.

The Sea Ray is mighty similar to the N9 released a day ago, with almost similar hardware.

We can’t say much about it right now but let’s try to find out (assume) what the spec-sheet would look like if this Windows Phone 7 device is developed on the same lines as the N9.

Nokia ‘Sea Ray’ Samsung GS2 HTC Sensation iPhone 4 HTC 7 Mozart
Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 1Ghz Qualcomm, 1.2Ghz Dual Core 1.2Ghz Dual Core, Qualcomm 1Ghz Cortex A8 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon

OS Windows Phone 7.1 (Mango) Android 2.3, Gingerbread. Android 2.3, Gingerbread. iOS 4 (soon iOS 5) Windows Phone 7

*specs are based on Nokia N9 & minimum requirements of the Windows Phone 7 OS. Nokia’s flagship models may use the SonyEricsson U8500 Dual Core SoC (system on chip).

Are these specs compelling? Considering the Nokia’s use of quite older generation of processors, this is definitely a good sign but to differentiate itself from others in the market it has to improve in this area.

Specs don’t matter much when it comes to user experience (as it is a software-hardware combination) and as it’s believed that Windows Phone 7 customers are the most satisfied ones with their OS – it is not hard to believe that these phones will deliver performance.

What Nokia needs to bring onto the table is its history of superb hardware design/construction, sleek attractive designs, more built-in features (which the Mango update will) and above all reasonable prices.

We will see some of this happening in the near future, until than enjoy the leaked photos & video of the prototype here J

    Now Nokia has decided to move fastly and beat other competitors after these good news but let see what the price of these sets.

  • Dani News

    Let see. No one beat Nokia :)

  • Now this is what nokia needs to do for competition, new phones like N9 Nokia Sea Ray will beat the heat of android and iPhone. This is a major revolution from Nokia and it is really a good jump. Lets see what nokia gets response from the market.

  • Nokia is no where near to even with Andriod or iPhone, mate Nokia already shown huge decline.

    They are only king in cheap handset market by which you can use phone and sms! so one can say by no. may be on top but overall on the down side.

    WP7 still not hit on the market either lets wait and see how Nokia and goes with WP7.

  • Rafay

    Too little a liitle too late :p

  • Ikram Musawir

    AOA, IT SEEMS NOKIA IS BACK IN GAME, IN MY OPINION THIS HANDSET MUST BE MADE AVAILABLE BEFORE THE END OF Q4. THE PRICE SHOULD BE REASONABLE; NOT SO HIGH, AS WE OFTENLY SEE NOKIA’S HANDSETS HAVE RELITIVELY HIGHER PRICE THAN THE COMPITITORS.

    der kha RAMEEZ…:-)

    • Rameez Kakakhel

      Lolz! Thanks Sunny ;)

  • Mustafa Hanif

    Although its a good move. But WP7 still needs to catch-up with iPhone and Android … they have already matured to version 5 and 3 respectively.

    Wp7 needs a few more updates before we can take it seriously…

  • Waseem sabir
