Nokia will tomorrow unveil three Windows Mango-powered handsets as it bids to turn around its ailing smartphone business and return to the phone makers' top table.
Debuting at the Nokia World expo in London's ExCel Exhibition Centre, the line-up is headed by the Nokia 800, which rocks a form factor not a million miles from the front-facing button-shunning N9.
The phone previously informally known as the Sea Ray, touted as Nokia’s flagship effort for 2012, also features a 3.7-inch touchscreen and an eight megapixel camera.
In a bid to target the enterprise market and heavy messagers, the Nokia Ace teams a physical QWERTY keyboard with a 4.3-inch display and the same eight megapixel snapper.
Completing the trio is the snappily named Sabre. With a spec sheet that apparently confirms Nokia is serious about bringing cheaper Windows phones to market, this offers a compact 3.5-inch screen and a five megapixel camera.
As well as Nokia’s future riding on its new handset line-up, Microsoft will hope the kits can reignite interest in its Windows smartphone platform which has struggled to make an impact in the face of the twin tech titans Android and iOS.
