Windows Phone 7 Nokia Smartphone With Physical Keyboard Leaks Online


Nokia spent a few years under Microsoft’s wing as the company tried to compete in the lucrative smartphone market by relying upon Nokia’s iconic branding. It did churn out a couple of good handsets but they never really caught on. Microsoft took a hit on the Nokia deal and is now trying to completely shake up the smartphone industry, but that may take a lot of time. Until that happens, we can feast our eyes on a canceled Windows Phone 7 handset that features a physical keyboard.

This prototype device is believed to have been made around 2012. It doesn’t have a name but is referred to as the Nokia RX-100. The handset’s physical keyboard immediately stands out, it’s very similar to the keyboards on BlackBerry handsets.

However, the prototype doesn’t have any of the sleek looks of other Lumia handsets that were actually released by Nokia, so it was possibly a very early prototype. Images suggest that the RX-100 is running a developer preview version of Windows Phone 7.

It’s unclear what happened to this project. Nokia hasn’t said anything about the devices it was working on and never ended up releasing. We can’t expect it to spill the beans now that it has all been said and done.

It would have been interesting to see where this project would have gone had Nokia decided to pursue it to a logical conclusion. There weren’t a lot of keyboard-toting Windows Phone 7 smartphones on the market after all.

Nokia Lumia 635 Hits The FCC

Nokia Lumia 635 Hits The FCCThere were rumors surrounding the Nokia Lumia 630 in the past, but it has apparently managed to clear the FCC sometime last week. Well, it seems that there is going to be a dual-SIM version of this particular device, which will be known as the Nokia Lumia 635, or at least that is what it is tipped to be called when it is finally announced. The Nokia Lumia 635 happens to be listed in the commission’s database as the Nokia RM-979, where its description points to it as having a couple of SIM card slots, where “both SIMs use the same antenna and transmitter chain”. Apart from that, the firmware on the Nokia Lumia 635 has confirmed that it will run a variant of the Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system.

    Annual Xbox Music Pass Nicks You A Free Lumia 520/Lumia 521

    Annual Xbox Music Pass Nicks You A Free Lumia 520/Lumia 521We know that we have put the jolly season of Christmas behind us for over a month already, but this does not mean that the spirit of generosity should be stamped out altogether! No sir, Microsoft certainly does not think along that line, and they have in fact introduced a mouthwatering proposal – by giving away a contract-free Nokia Lumia 520 or Nokia Lumia 521 for free as long as you decide to pick up a 12-month Xbox Music Pass. This will not be an ongoing offer indefinitely, since it is part of a limited time promotion. Hence, the usual disclaimers apply here – early bird gets the early worm and all that jazz.
