Today at Nokia World 2011, the Finnish mobile giant pulled the wraps off its very first Windows Phone devices and showed them to the world. First one up to the plate is the Nokia Lumia 800 (previously known as the Searay/Nokia 800), which has been spotted and leaked many times in the past. It features a design that’s been heavily inspired by the Nokia N9 with some changes – like the presence of a physical shutter button, the Windows Phone buttons and a relocated camera flash.
The Nokia Lumia 800 will feature a 3.7″ AMOLED ClearBlack curved display (800 x 480), a 1.4GHz single-core processor (Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon S2, Adreno 205 GPU), 16GB of onboard storage, 512MB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera that makes use of a f/2.2 Carl Zeiss lens and is optimized for taking photographs in low light conditions and 720p video capable, HSPA+ connectivity, and of course – Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango). Other features include: FM Radio, TV Output, Bluetooth, WiFi, and GPS. The phone will be available in three colors: cyan, black and magenta.
In addition to the usual Windows Phone 7 offerings , the Nokia Lumia 800 will also come with a number of preloaded apps from Nokia: Nokia Drive – a turn by turn, voice navigation app, Nokia Music – an app for consumers to obtain music for free and without any sign ups, and an ESPN sports hub for folks to stay up to date with their favorite sports. It was announced that these apps will be available exclusively for Nokia phones, though I can’t help but wonder if they’ll make their way to non-Nokia WP7 phones in the future.
The Nokia Lumia 800 will go up for pre-order starting today and will arrive in the US early 2012. It will cost 420 Euros ($585) though this is before taxes and without a contract.
