Officially announced late October, the Nokia Lumia 800 is Nokia's first Windows Phone which runs Microsoft's new Windows Phone 7.5/Mango OS. Powered by a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 single core CPU, the Lumia 800 supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and quadband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 850/900/1900/2100 MHz as well as WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, an FM radio aGPS and comes with all the Windows Phone-typical sensors like a proximity sensor and digital compass. The WVGA AMOLED ClearBlack curved glass touchscreen measures 3.7" and integrates seamlessly into to unibody magnesium body of the device, which looks like a pillow.
Bellow the multitouch touchscreen, the device features the backlight illuminated Windows Phone navigation keys, on the right side it features the volume rocker, the power on/off switch and the camera button. The 8 megapixel autofocus camera from Carl Zeiss comes with a supporting dual flash LED and allows to record the Windows Phone 7 typical 720p HD videos up to 30 fps. However, it lacks a front-facing camera as supported now by Windows Phone 7.5.
Including the non-removable 1450 mAh battery, the Lumia 800 measures 116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm and weights 142 g. It comes with 512 MB RAM and 16 GB flash storage. The micro USB port, which is protected by a flap, is located on the top, next to the 3.5 mm stereo headset jack. Next to to the USB port is the micro SIM card slot located. On the bottom of the device, where you normally find the microphone, the Lumia 800 is sporting the loud speaker for media playback and hands-free phone calls.
The Nokia Lumia 800 (at least the German Deutsche Telekom version), comes with an additional silicon case which fits nicely and protects the body of the device. Other accessories are the 100 - 240 Volt USB power adapter, a standard USB to micro USB charging and synchronization cable and a stereo headset with microphone.
The Nokia Lumia 800 will be available in three vivid colors (cyan, magenta and black) and will be available in selected European markets (UK, France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and Germany) first. In Germany it will be available from tomorrow, November 15th, for 499 Euro.
