Nokia before of its acquisition by Microsoft was working on an own Smartwatch. The Smartwatch was referred to internally as Moonraker, but because Microsoft Project has provided a how we reported to have – is, never on the market. Now a Hands-On video on YouTube showed up but, that shows an advanced prototype in action.
Presumably the company from Redmond development in favour of the own product was the Microsoft Band. Is the stage in which the development of the “Moonraker” found himself in following Hands-On videos from Nokisbar post to see.
As it is seen in the video, Nokia seems almost ready to have developed the Moonraker Smartwatch. The user interface is adapted to the Windows phone design, already has apps, a store, and some Watchfaces. Already in the year 2015, pictures surfaced on the Internet through a pre-Congress marketing, which closely reflect the design of the Werables in the video.
Microsoft hired the Moonraker project
As became known, Nokia had in 2015 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas searched already potential partners for the project and presented the Smartwatch in relation to a secret presentation, but the whole project and the planned release date burst due to the acquisition by Microsoft and in favor of the Microsoft tape.
