Nokia 800 Windows Phone teased ahead of this week's launch

Nokia has given us a teasing glimpse of its first Windows Phone, the Nokia 800, ahead of its launch at Nokia World on Wednesday.

Nokia has given us a teasing glimpse of its first Windows Phones. Nokia's new smart phones will be unveiled this week at the Nokia World event here in London -- but can they take on the iPhone 4S or new Android powerhouses like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Motorola Razr?

Flashes of the hotly tipped Nokia 800 are revealed in teasers shown between adverts on ITV this weekend. Click play below to whet your appetite for the 800, previously known as the Sea Ray and based on the buttonless N9.

The fine folks at My Nokia Blog stitched together the brief glimpses of the phone in this video:

The phone-frenzied Finns at Nokia must be in a good mood ahead of Nokia World, the annual company showcase and conference that kicks off on Wednesday. Not only has the company seen an upsurge in business after a disastrous start to the year, but it can finally reveal the phones that will hopefully regain ground lost to Apple and Google's Android in the smart phone market.

Nokia is expected to announce the Sea Ray and Sabre, although it seems they were merely codenames.

It's been an intense couple of weeks for the mobile phone world: first there was the keenly anticipated launch of the iPhone 4S. Then there was the delayed announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the new flagship phone for Google's Android operating system.

We're also heading into the battle of the next-generation operating systems: the Nokia phones will pit the latest version of Windows Phone, known as Mango, against Apple's new iOS 5 and Android 4.0, codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich.

We can hardly contain our excitement! We'll be beaming down to Nokia World in force on Wednesday, so keep it CNET UK for all the up-to-the-minute news, previews and videos of the new phones.
