Nokia Lumia 800: What You Need to Know

Recommended Posts

It's Like the N9...But Not


The Lumia 800 is nearly identical in appearance to the N9, Nokia's first -- and last -- MeeGo handset.

Like the N9, it sports a beautiful polycarbonate body with a curved glass screen, a rear camera with LED flash and edges that feel great in the hand.

Nokia just announced the Lumia 800, the company’s first Windows Phone, and we’ve got the details on the specs, form factor and special features.

As we said in our hands-on coverage, on the surface, the Lumia 800 is an N9 paired with Windows Phone 7.5, otherwise known as Mango.

The phone has a single core 1.4Ghz processor — which is standard for the Windows Phone ecosystem. It has a beautiful 3.7″ display that curves seamlessly into its polycarbonate body. The phone has an 8-megapixel rear camera. The phone does not have a front-facing camera, eschewing a trend that most other manufacturers have adopted over the last 18 months. The photos should look great, however, thanks to the Carl Zeiss lens and LED flash. The phone will also record HD video in 720p.

The Lumia 800 has 16GB of internal storage — though like Apple, this storage is not upgradable. Nokia points out that all Windows Phone users have access to 25GB of free cloud storage using Microsoft’s SkyDrive. It also includes all of the built-in connectivity options you would expect, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and even an FM radio.

The Lumia 800 will be available in most of the world by the end of 2011, though Nokia is still mum about U.S. availability. Before VAT and subsidies, the phone is €420, or $584 U.S.
