Today, Nokia announced the availability of two new handsets, both of which run under Microsoft's Windows Phone Mango operating system, namely the Nokia Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710, and the former is already listed on a coming soon page at Vodafone UK.
The US users who would like to purchase the new device when it becomes available via Vodafone should head over to the carrier's website here for that.
The smartphone, said to be the “first real Windows Phone,” packs a large 3.7-inch OLED WVGA Gorilla Glass display, along with a 1.4GHz application processor inside, for increased performance.
The new device also sports WLAN IEEE 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR connectivity capabilities, along with 3.5mm AHJ Connector, 512 MB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory (no microSD memory card slot).
On the back, the new mobile phone
sports an 8-megapixel photo snapper, with support for HD video recording. The handset is powered by a 1450mAh battery.
In addition to the appealing hardware, the new device also brings along great software, at least this is what Nokia said today.
Users will find new applications and services from Nokia packed with these devices, along with all of the features and capabilities that Windows Phone also sports.
“Apps for your favourite social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn, Windows Live and Twitter come built into your Nokia Lumia 800,” Vodafone notes.
“But with Windows Phone 7.5 – also known as Mango – you can go beyond just checking on and updating your social world using these apps.
“The Nokia Lumia 800
gives you your updates in one place – including emails, texts and IMs – whenever you tap on a contact. You can even pin the people you chat to most to your Start screen – much like you would on your PC with Windows 7.”
