As we already reported, Nokia has just announced its Lumia series of Windows Phone devices, the Lumia 800 and 710.
Nokia Lumia 800, “the first true Windows Phone,” as Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop claims, will be available on the market in three color options: cyan, magenta and black.
The Finnish company also revealed some release dates for the Lumia 800, along with the smartphone's suggested retail price of 420 EUR ($585).
Nokia Lumia 800 will be available in the UK, Spain, France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands beginning November for the price mentioned above.
Furthermore, the phone is also expected to arrive in Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan toward the end of the year, while China will get it in early 2012.
Nokia Lumia 800 has the same form factor and design as the MeeGo-based Nokia N9 smartphone, which doesn't come as a surprise, given that first spy shots of the Lumia 800 confirmed this aspect.
As a matter fact, all details about the phone's specs have been pretty much confirmed today during the Nokia World Conference.
So, to recap for those who are still unfamiliar with the device, Nokia Lumia 800 is powered by a single core 1.4 Ghz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor and runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system.
As expected, the handset lacks a microSD card slot for memory expansion, but offers 16GB of internal memory, 512 MB of RAM and 25GB of free SkyDrive storage for storing images and music..
It has a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen based on Nokia's ClearBlack technology, which supports 16 million colors and 480 x 800 pixels resolution.
The 8-megapixel camera on the back is among the strong points of the phone. It features Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, dual-LED flash and HD (720p) video recording capabilities.
Nokia Lumia 800 is now available for pre-order via Nokia's site in select countries.
Check out some funny Nokia Lumia 800 videos below:
I personally do not like the phone, the screen seems a little small for my taste, and they need more curves, but the screen does look great, and the OS looks silky smooth. I'm a WP7 owner, (Samsung Focus), and I think Nokia is exactly the push WP7 needs 2 really kick the doors in of their competition!! The commercials however are a whole other demon all together.
Not only do they not show the product throughout the whole commercial, except till the very end, (for like 2 seconds), which by the way, I would have changed the channel way before they ever got 2 the product, but the commercials are simply * , (and so is anyone who actually enjoys them, because they are obviously simple minded). Commercials are suppose 2 be engaging, though provoking, and most of all, INTERESTING.
They really need 2 stop trying 2 pander 2 kids/teens, (trying 2 be cool, because the kids see right through it), because they're not the ones with the money, plus if the new generation is choosing 2 act clueless, and dumbfounded oh well; wake'em up!!
These spots are a perfect example of what I hate about the choices adverting departments make for companies these days. Commercials need 2 be about the product, or at lease highlight the product, and then, and only then, can you blend in whatever theme you're going with; sheesh!!
