What distinguishes Lumia 800 from other Mango phones? Voice-Guided GPS, quadra-band mobile Internet and more…
Touted as the first real Windows Phone by Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, the newest line from the Finish phone maker promises to be the second to no other Windows Phone devices. Windows Phone head Joe Belfiore couldn’t help but agree, looking up to Nokia as the “killer hardware” beyond compare to other Mango mobile devices. How accurate is that description?
A combination of chic design, durable polycarbonate frame and 0.48-inch dimension creates a fresh new look for this flagship phone. The 3.7 inch ClearBlack AMOLED screen has the standard resolution (800×480) for smart phones, slightly below iPhone 4S’s 960×640. Lumia’s f/2.2 aperture allows for sharper evening pictures though. Hard disk capacity is limited to 16 GB, but SkyDrive’s cloud server would provide 25 GB additional storage space, which is not available in other Mango smart phones.
The best things about Lumia are its core Windows Phone apps and enhanced mobile Internet connectivity:
Lumia 800 will hit India, Asia and European markets ( UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy ) this month, selling for around $580. The smartphone will be sold in the US early next year.
