Nokia Mobile Use Windows OS - Lumia

Nokia has officially unveiled Lumia 800, the first Windows Phone-based device from the mobile giant at the Nokia World conference 2011 in London."It's a new dawn for Nokia, And we think we can break through." CEO Stephen Elop said at Nokia World Conference 2011 in London.

Microsoft has also packed the device with free software. Lumia 800 will be the only Windows Phone with Nokia Drive, which offers full, turn-by-turn voice navigation. Nokia is taking the right steps to diversify their phones by offering three apps you won't find with other carriers are the ESPN hub, Nokia Drive for turn-by-turn directions, and a music app that will do music mixes and streaming radio. Nokia Drive was the only one we were able to see, and the voice read-out. It's a great addition that will help match Android's turn-by-turn Google Maps navigation.

The phone has a single core 1.4Ghz processor which is standard for the Windows Phone ecosystem. It has a beautiful 3.7″ display that curves seamlessly into its polycarbonate body. This will keep the Lumia 800 competitive with the higher-end qHD phones, which can sometimes lack sharpness and richness despite their high resolutions.

The phone has an 8-megapixel rear camera. It also has a Carl-Zeiss, f2.2 aperture, 8-megapixel front camera designed to work well in low-light environments. The phone does not have a front-facing camera, eschewing a trend that most other manufacturers have adopted over the last 18 months. The photos should look great because of LED flash. The phone will also record HD video in 720p.

Interestly, the Lumia 800 is already on its way to France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK in time for a November launch. Customers in Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan will be able to nab one by the end of the year. It’s coming to other markets in early 2012.
