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?
Check out my full ZDNet Smartphones & Cell Phones blog post for more thoughts on the Nokia Lumia 800 and N9 and a video walkthrough of them both.
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.
The most obvious hardware difference is the physical camera button found on the Lumia 800. The volume and power buttons are the same and are actually the only part of the hardware that is a bit weak with some wobble to them.
The speaker is found on the bottom of both devices as you can see by the grille here.
The other obvious physical difference is the screen size and capacitive buttons. The Lumia 800 display is 3.7 inches due to the inclusion of the three capacitive touch buttons while the N9 is 3.9 inches.
The same excellent use of glass that wraps to the edges is found on the Lumia 800.
You will find a stereo headset, USB cable, and A/C adapter in the box. A case is also included in the Lumia 800 box.
