Nokia Lumia 800 announced

"The first REAL Windows Phone"

Nokia Lumia 800, , has been officially announced by Stephen Elop at Nokia World 2011.

Featuring a near-identical chassis to the Nokia N9, which sees no UK release, the new phone is packing a large ClearBlack 3.7 inch AMOLED display, 512MB of RAM and weighs 142g.

Nokia Lumia 800 will run Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, this is going to be the flagship phone for Nokia as it transitions from Symbian to Microsoft's new OS.

Processor wise, it's sporting a single-core 1.4GHz processor, and users will be handed 25GB of free SkyDrive storage; will have a Carl Zeiss optics on board, with an optimised flash and an f2.2 aperture for better low light photography.

Nokia Drive is also on board, which offers free turn by turn navigation with full voice guidance, which also allows you to download install maps before you even set off, should you be worried about data charges.

Nokia Music is also included, a new service that uses a feature called Mix Radio to offer up mixes the phone thinks you'll like with no login or password needed. In a nod to Spotify, you'll also be able download tracks and listen to them offline too.

Elop cocked a major snook to the likes of Samsung and HTC by dubbing the new Lumia 800 the 'first real Windows Phone, complementing and amplifying the design of Windows Phone."
