Nokia Lumia 800 the first Nokia Windows Phone smartphone

Finally Nokia World took place and we saw what we had been waiting for. It firstly refers to the Nokia Lumia 800, the first Nokia Windows Phone smartphone. Of course, there were other products as well, but let’s talk about everything in order.
The Nokia Lumia is what we have called the Nokia 800 and though many analysts hurried to think it’s the same SeaRay or Sun, now we see this is an absolutely different device. The rumors the Nokia 800 will sport a 3.7-inch display turned out to be rumors and only. I had previously told you that they are destined to be only rumors. So the reality is different; the Nokia Lumia 800 comes in the same housing as the Nokia N9 does, which means the phone is packed with a 3.9-inch (!) display.
Moreover, the phone’s screen has a resolution of 854×480 pixels and is made using ClearBlack AMOLED technology. All in all, the Nokia Lumia 800 is the same Nokia N9 with Windows Phone Mango on the board, so at this moment let’s not mention all its specs, because you always can check out our Nokia N9 preview. Several features worth to be persistently mentioned are 1.4 GHz CPU, 16GB of internal memory, 25GB of free SkyDrive space, Carl Zeiss optics-enhanced lens and f/2.2 aperture.

As for availability, the Nokia Lumia 800 is ready for pre-orders for €420 (about $585). The first countries to meet this phone are France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK. Consumers from these countries can get their hands on the phone from the beginning of November. The second patch will be shipped to Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan before the end of the year. Other parts of the world will get it sometime next year.

Nokia also announced the Lumia 710. The device looks weaker and is designed for low-income markets. This is why it’s packed with a 3.7-inch ClearBlack display, a 1.4GHz CPU and runs Windows Phone Mango. The Nokia Lumia 710 is priced at €270 ($375). By the end of the year it’ll be available in Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan. Other countries will get the device in the first half of 2012.



Nokia also unveiled a new lineup called Asha. These devices will run Series 40. As you see they are designed as low-end smartphones. Today we saw four handsets from the Asha lineup, the 200, 201, 300 and 301. They are all made “to connect the next billion.” We’ll talk about them in details later; at this moment you only need to know they are quite cheap.


And lastly, Nokia announced Drive Navigation, Mix Radio, and ESPN Sports Hub cloud services for WP7. As for accessories, the Finnish company introduced the Purity HD Stereo Headset by Monster.
