Nokia Lumia 800 Goes Official, A Windows Phone 7 Flagship

26 October 2011 - Despite many leaks, Nokia Lumia 800 has officially made its appearance during the launch in the Nokia World 2011 in London today. 

Previously known as Sea Ray, the Nokia Lumia 800 is the Windows Phone flagship by Nokia. It shares the same exterior design with the Nokia N9, but with additional camera shutter button on the bottom right of the phone. It has a smaller display than the N9 to make space for the three obligatory touch buttons (Back, Start and Search) on Windows Phone platform. 

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop touted the Lumia 800 as a “first real Windows Phone.” Spec-wise, the Lumia 800 has 3.7-inch WVGA (480 x 800) AMOLED display with ClearBlack technology, a 1.4GHz solo-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor, 512MB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, 8-megapixel f/2.2 camera with Carl Zeiss optics and supports HSDPA 14.4Mbps, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1. 

Of course, the Lumia 800 will be running on the latest Windows Phone Mango, along with some exclusive goodies such as free 25GB SkyDrive cloud storage, Nokia Drive turn-by-turn voice navigation free app and Nokia Music with Mix Radio. 

The Nokia Lumia 800 will be available from November in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK. Other territories including Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan will see the Nokia Lumia 800 before 2011 ends, with even more markets following in early 2012. 

The Lumia 800 expected retail price is €420 (approx. RM 1850) and it comes with three colors, Cyan, Black and Magenta.
