A name for Nokia's new Windows phone

Brier Dudley, our tech columnist, says pshaw to the name mobile phone giant Nokia has chosen for its new Windows phone: Sea Ray vs. Lumia 800.

We like what he has to say:

I speculated earlier that Sea Ray sounded like a speedboat. Lumia 800 sounds like a new lightbulb, or a compact Chevrolet.

Lumia it is.
