  • Released in Europe and the UK in late 2011, the Nokia Lumia 800 is a solid Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) handset. Although only the unlocked version is available in the US, the Lumia 800 may give us good idea of what to expect inside the soon-to-be-released Lumia 900, which Nokia announced at CES 2012. Following along as I crack open the Lumia 800 for a look at the hardware inside.

  • U.S carriers aren't subsidizing the phone's cost, so buyers will pay full price. An unlocked, European version of the Lumia 800 is priced at $585 U.S (420 euros). The phone supports WCDMA/HSPA+ 850/1900/2100 and GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900. It will work on both AT&T and T-Mobile's networks, but T-Mobile users will be restricted to EDGE.
