The official Nokia Lumia 800 page is now online and you can finally get a look at the detailed specs list.

The handset looks a lot like the Nokia N9 and will be avilable on 31 operators and retailers. It’ll be priced up at €420 before tax and is confirmed for a November 16th launch.


The 800 in available in Magenta, Cyan or Black and has a 3.7″ AMOLED 480×800 curved ClearBlack Display (CBD). It’s powered by a 1.4GHz processor with hardware acceleration, separate graphics processor and pretty much matches up with those leaked specs we saw earlier. There’s 16GB of on-board storage, 25GB of free online storage via the SkyDrive system and 8 megapixel camera with HD video recording and Carl Zeiss optics. Unfortunately there’s no face-pointing camera.

There’s 16GB of on-board storage. WiFi, stereo Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, aGPS, microUSB, 3.5mm audio and a batch of accelerometers and sensors are also included. A micro SIM is used in this handset and it’s powered by a 1450mAh battery.

  • The lack of a front facing camera seems a bit of an oversight for a new Mango phone – no mention of one in the Nokia details.

    • Completly agree. Some of the older Windows Mobile phones used to have a front facing camera. Now that Microsoft have Skype I would expect this to be builtin to every Windows Phone thats released from now on. That would be a great feature.

      At the moment the Skype app is buggy on most phones. It works but it isnt smooth as it would be built into the OS.

      I do like the look of Windows Phone, it’s the only phone that has a really Designeresque looking OS. All clean and sharp and not at all boring. Theres always something going on on the screen but in a good way.

      iOS 5, while be rock solid and reliable, is a bit boring, already! Nothings really changed in it. Android is the Windows Mobile of yesteryear. You can do everything with an Android device but to me they still feel a bit disjointed. Different OS’s for different devices.

      Good luck MS, hope the launch with Nokia works.

      I think these phones look great!

  • Its a nice looking bit of kit, but is it just me or spec wise do these 2nd genration WP7 handsets seem a bit ‘meh’.

    I love my LG Optimus 7, its the first phone I’ve actually kept for a whole year since about 2002 and I was quite excited about the next generation come upgrade time in January. To be honest though none of the anounced new WP7 devices seem like much of an upgrade. I may end up keepding my Optimus 7 and getting the Nexus Prime and just using both.
