Nokia is set to launch its new Windows Phones at Nokia World next week, but some renders have leaked of the 800, formerly code named Sea Ray. The phone sports the Meego-based N9′s industrial design language, paired with a 3.7″ screen and Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango). It should be available in black, blue, and pink.
Some other findings from these images: Nokia has replaced Windows Phone’s default Segoe WP font with its own font, Pure, and the phone shows Nokia Music, so where will Microsoft’s Zune Marketplace go?
Rumored specs include: 3.7″ ClearBlack AMOLED screen, 1.4 GHz Qualcomm CPU, 16GB storage, 8 MP camera with Carl Zeiss lens, 1540 mAh battery.
Mercedes’ new C-Class coupe is scheduled to be unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show in March. Some European bloggers seem to have beaten Mercedes to the punch, however, releasing three leaked press shots of the new car. The coupe shares its front-end styling with the facelifted 2012 C-Class sedan but is unique from the A-pillar aft.
Interestingly, this is not the first Mercedes two-door to resemble the latest C-Class. For a while, the company sold the CLC (outside of America), which was actually a previous-generation (W203) C-Class Sportcoupe (hatchback) facelifted to match the current sedan’s (W204) exterior styling. This time around, however, the car has standard trunk instead of a hatchback.
No further details have been confirmed, though we expect the coupe to gain the same engine options as the sedan- the C250 (a new 1.8L twin-turbo direct-injection inline-4 with 201 hp, 229 lb-ft), C300 (retaining its 3.0L V6 with 228 hp, 221 lb-ft), and C350 (a new 3.5L direct-injection V6 with 302 hp, 273 lb-ft).
The C-Class sedan and coupe are almost sure to get AMG, and possibly AMG Black Series, versions sporting AMG’s 5.5L twin-turbo V8.
HTC’s new Windows Phone 7 handset, dubbed the HD7 (but labeled HD3 in these shots), has been outed in a Taiwanese forum. The successor to the Windows Mobile-powered HTC HD2 sports a very similar design and internals to its predecessor, with a large 4.3″ WVGA (800×480) touchscreen and the same 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8250 CPU and MicroUSB and 3.5mm audio ports as earlier. The phone has 8GB of built-in storage (likely non-expandable), and the volume rocker has been moved to the right side.
The camera is the same 5 MP unit from the HD2, with 720p video recording and dual-LED flash, but the phone gains a dedicated camera button on the side. There’s now also a kickstand in the back, like the Android-powered HTC EVO 4G, but this time cleverly hidden in the camera bezel. There are grille slots at the top and bottom (whereas the HD2/EVO have just one at the top), suggesting the HD7 might be sporting stereo speakers. The HD2′s array of bottom buttons has been replaced by 3 capacitive touch keys (the standard Windows Phone 7 setup of back, start, and search).
Otherwise the phone looks very similar to the HD2– we were surprised to see that the processor, while still speedy today, has not been upgraded, and the phone lacks a Mini-HDMI output and front camera (for video chat), both of which the EVO 4G has. We suspect that’s because HTC simply went about upgrading the HD2 (we’ve seen the codename “HD2+” milling about carrier sheets) and didn’t bother with large chassis changes. This will be a GSM-only model and will hit T-Mobile USA this fall; AT&T may also get it at some point. No pricing or release date info yet.
The 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS is scheduled to debut at the Paris Motor Show in October, but several photos of the car’s interior and exterior have already leaked. The second-generation model, codenamed C218, has a tough act to follow– its swoopy predecessor single-handedly created the market for “four-door coupes.” The new car inherits much of its styling from the Concept Shooting Brake, including a prominent grille, aggressively styled front bumper, daytime LED running lights, and a long hood.
The new CLS sports two gasoline engine options– the the CLS 350 CGI with a new direct-injected 3.5L V6 putting out 301 HP and 272 lb-ft of torque and the CLS 550 CGI, with a new 4.6L twin-turbo V8 delivering 429 HP and 516 lb-ft of torque. The company’s 4Matic four-wheel-drive system will likely be available on the 550 CGI. Mercedes will offer two diesel options (outside America), the CLS 350 CDI with a 3.0L V6 producing 248 HP and the CLS 250 CDI with an inline-4 putting out 201 HP.
AMG will join the party with the 2011 CLS63 AMG, sporting the tuner’s new 5.5L twin-turbo V8 putting out 544 HP and 590 lb-ft of torque. An optional Performance Pack will be available, boosting power to about 570 HP and 663 lb-ft of torque.

247WindowsPhone has obtained a prototype of a Windows Phone 7 handset built by HTC. The HTC Schubert will be a Windows Phone 7 launch device, and while we have no confirmed details, it is an aluminum unibody design and appears to have around a 3.7″ screen, likely with WVGA (800×480) resolution.

A new HTC smartphone has spotted in Hong Kong running Google’s Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS. Like its older siblings, the HTC HD2 (Windows Mobile) and EVO 4G (Android), the Desire HD sports a 4.3″ WVGA capacitive touch screen and a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
The phone seems to lack a front-facing camera, so this is basically an HD2 with Android and the EVO’s 8 MP camera tossed on. Full specs below:
4.3-inch WVGA touch screen
8 million pixel camera lens
1 GHz Qualcomm processor
720p HD video capture
Support the Xvid format video playback
SRS Audio Technology
Support for Adobe Flash 10.1
Built-in 4GB SD card (up to expand to 32GB)
Integrated aluminum body
Taiwanese site Apple.pro has unearthed a tiny touchscreen with Apple markings. The panel measures a minuscule 3 cm (1.18″) diagonally- the fact that it’s touch sensitive is interesting given how tiny any touchable items would be on screen. This could be anything, but if we had to guess, it might be the next-generation iPod Nano, with touch gestures to switch songs and the like. Or maybe it’s a new device altogether.
One more photo after the break.
Auto Express managed to obtain a leaked photo of the 2011 Volkswagen Passat. The new car sports a squarer, slightly more aggressive design, with flared fenders, lower air intakes, and a chrome grille and new headlights matching the rest of VW’s new models.
Engine options haven’t been confirmed yet, but we’re likely looking at a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder producing around 200 HP in the U.S. Europe will probably get the same 1.4 and 1.8L TSI gas engines and 1.6 and 2.0L TDI diesels as the current Passat, along with a 2.0L turbo R model delivering 270 HP.
VW will officially unveil the 2011 Passat at the Paris Motor Show in October, and the car should hit showrooms by early next year.

As if one prototype of Apple’s upcoming fourth-generation iPhone being left in a bar and delivered to a tech blog weren’t enough, a second prototype iPhone has now found its way into some Vietnamese forum posters’ hands. Unlike the Gizmodo bloggers, however, these people had no worries about damaging the phone and took it apart to reveal whatever wasn’t already known. At this point we’re left wondering if Apple will have anything left to surprise us with when the new iPhone launches next month.
Read on for more details, lots of photos, and a video of the next-gen iPhone. More >
