Nokia Research showed off “ForcePhone” in Helsinki this week, which is a prototyped Nokia N900. The devices let callers send vibrations to each other by squeezing the phone during a call. The prototypes were tested by three couples in long-distance relationships.

Nokia prototype devices running Windows Phone 8 are already in the hands of VIP’s and “star developers” according to Neowin. They are allegedly under strict monitoring conditions, so we probably won’t see any of these devices appear on eBay soon.

Nokia shows off nano technology at their Mobile World Congress booth. Water is dropped on a prototype phone with a superhydrophobic coating and it slides off to a surface with graphene based sensor. This is relevant to the mobile space in that it improves the water resistance and fingerprint resistance.

A prototype of the Nokia Sabre came out of hiding today. Pocketnow’s source said this Nokia Windows Phone will have a 1.4 Ghz processor, 1GB RAM, 3.5-inch WVGA display, and a 5 megapixel camera. The price is expected to be around 300-350 Euros. Photo after the jump.

An anonymous tipster just sent us a promo ad of the Nokia Searay. It looks unsurprisingly like the Nokia N9. If this ad is real, it looks to be created by T-mobile Germany. I think this is the full image of that other recent leak.

Microsoft Canada is running a developer challenge, and a very observant person noticed something juicy within the competition details. Several codenames for smartphones were revealed, including two from Nokia. We’ve heard of Searay before, but Sabre is new.

A seller on eBay listed a fully functional Nokia N00 prototype for sale. It looks like a Nokia N86, but with 12 megapixel camera, xenon flash, and possibly a bigger screen. It seems to be running the same Symbian S60 OS as other Nokia’s non-touch devices. If this is a real prototype, I imagine Nokia buying the device to track down the seller and investigate how it was acquired.
