Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone Announced

Nokia has finally unveiled its first Windows Phone device. It is called the Nokia Lumia 800 and has been dubbed the “first real Windows Phone”.

The new smartphone is similar to the Nokia N9 in design. Inside, it has some decent specs which show a 1.4GHz CPU, 16GB of internal storage and a camera that has an f2.2 aperture that works well with low light.

The device measures 12.1mm thick and has a curved ClearBlack AMOLED display. It runs the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system.

Price wise, Nokia is selling the phone for $585 SIM free. It is scheduled for launch in the beginning of November and will be seen in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and in the UK. It will then move on to Hong Kong, Russia, India, Singapore and Taiwan shortly after (likely before the end of the year).

The Nokia Lumia 800 could be a fantastic help to the Windows Phone platform and Nokia itself. We expect the device to do well.

The stunningly social Nokia Lumia 800 features head-turning design, vivid colors (cyan, magenta and black) and the best social and Internet performance, with one-touch social network access, easy grouping of contacts, integrated communication threads and Internet Explorer 9. It features a 3.7 inch AMOLED ClearBlack curved display blending seamlessly into the reduced body design, and a 1.4 GHz processor with hardware acceleration and a graphics processor. The Nokia Lumia 800 contains an instant-share camera experience based on leading Carl Zeiss optics, HD video playback, 16GB of internal user memory and 25GB of free SkyDrive storage for storing images and music. The estimated retail price for the Nokia Lumia 800 will be approximately 420 EUR, excluding taxes and subsidies.
