Nokia Lumia 800, Does it matter?
Yesterday Nokia finally unveiled their first of many Windows Phone Devices in London at Nokia World. Almost a year after Nokia and Microsoft announced their partnership, Nokia showed of their Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 710.
First lets talk specs on Nokia’s newest flagship Device, the Lumia 800. It has a 3.7″ ClearBlack Amoled Curved Display. Ya, it’s a mouthful. The Lumia 800 is wrapped by a unibody curved polycarbonate body. The phone actually looks exactly like the Nokia N9 but running Windows Phone. On the back there’s an 8MP camera with flash that can shoot in 720p. Under the hood is a 1.4Ghz single core Snapdragon Processor, 512mb of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage, Nokia also gives users 25gb free storage using SkyDrive. The phone is 12.1mm thick, and its a GSM Device with max download of 14.4mbs HSPA.
On the software side, its running Windows Phone Mango 7.5, so you getting all the advantages of Multitasking and Bing Search. Nokia has also packed Nokia Drive(free turn by turn GPS) , Nokia Music and ESPN Sports Hub. The Nokia Lumia 800 will be available across Europe and Asia next month and more market by years end.
Now that Nokia showed off their first real Windows Phone Device. Does it matter? I honestly think that Microsoft and Nokia can gain a lot of attraction. With Microsoft’s stunning OS and Nokia’s beautiful hardware they will be able to gain market share. Windows Phone has barely made a dent in Market Share since it’s release over a year ago, it captured a little over 1%. Nokia has also said the plan to “invade” the US Market. I am looking forward to getting my hands on some great Nokia Windows Phone.
