Hands-on with the Nokia Lumia 800 and N9

Summary: The Nokia Lumia 800 is the first Nokia Windows Phone and it copies the Nokia N9 MeeGo device in terms of form factor, with just a couple minor differences. Is the Lumia 800 going to be the hit that Nokia and Microsoft need at this time?

  • The back and side of the box show that the Lumia 800 comes in red too.

  • The Nokia N9 and Nokia Lumia 800 side-by-side. They have the same wonderful form factor with just a few minor differences.

  • As you can see on the back of the N9 and Lumia 800 they both have 8 megapixel cameras with Carl Zeiss optics and dual LED flash lights. The N9 flash is above the camera lens while the Lumia 800 is to the side of it.

      @Woned B. Fooldagan How about "the screen is way too small in my opinion"? Apple sells a lot of iphones with smaller screens. Just because it is too small for you, doesn't mean it is too small for everyone.

    Let me guess in Mexico is going to be with Telcel only. Marketing decisions are horrible in Microsoft. Many carriers, many models. Unlocked ones preferably. Thinking in Android, is here a not doing marketing in Europe with crisis. Maybe 2 netbook, 1 laptop for that prices. Sorry olvely devices but marketing guys are on holiday! A year ago not even windows phone manager for the country. Great product, bad marketing worlwide! Every carrier says is planned stay in touch! We have the Samsung Focus for more than a year. Congratulations for the design. Apple marketing & deliverability Excellent, Android is good but Windows Phone a lot to learn. Even blackberry is already here with new models. Almost 20 models + the new ones & still waiting! congratulations grat design but decision takers are far from reality!
