We’re back with yet another Nokia Windows Phone 7 concept, following yesterday’s design. This is the Nokia ARES, available below and packing very appealing specs, that include a 12MP autofocus Xenon camera and a 4 inch 16/9 screen. This was initially a MeeGo concept, but the switch to WP7 was made recently, for obvious reasons.

Nokia ARES adopts a convex profile, aluminum body and a clean design, with a single physical button (that will change in future designs to match Microsoft’s required number of buttons). The device also includes a microUSB port, 3.5mm audio jack and a microSD card slot (not something you usually find on a WP7 handset).

HDMI and the camera button are lacking, because of the design challenges, but they might make it to future concepts. What do you think? Any feedback is welcome either here, or on the source site.
