Finally Nokia has joined the mobile phone battle, by announcing its new Phone Model – Lumia 800.
Lumia 800 is the first mobile phone from Nokia that has Windows Phone OS in it. Earlier Nokia was presenting mobile phones with their own Operating Systems (Symbian and MeeGo). The last successful phone from Nokia was N800, which was released about 3 years ago.
But now with the popularity of Windows Phone OS, New Nokia Lumia 800 has also gained a huge popularity among folks, whether businessman or teenagers.
Nokia Lumia 800 comes with Windows 7.5 Mango Operating System, with 3.7 inch AMOLED and Capacitive Multi-Touchscreen. Lumia 800 screen is protected with Gorilla Glass, which is the strongest material for Phones’ Screen. The device screen has 16 million colors with a screen resolution of 480×800 pixels.
Lumia 800 has a 1.4Ghz Scorpion CPU, Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon Chipset and Adreno 205 GPU.
While talking about the memory, Nokia Lumia 800 has 16GB internal storage, but no external SD Card Allowed. To speedup the processes in the phone, it has 512 MB RAM.
In terms of Connectivity, Nokia Lumia 800 has Wi-Fi, 3G, MicroUSB Support, and Bluetooth with EDR and A2DP (version 2.1). Nokia Lumia 800 has an 8 Mega-Pixel Camera, with Carl-Zeiss Optics, Autofocus and Dual LED Flash.
To increase the users base, Nokia has also improved their App-Store, and renamed the earlier Ovi store to Nokia App Store. Nokia App Store consists of a number of quality mobile apps. Though the apps can’t be compared with iPhone Store and Android Market, but still, they are trying to come into the competition.
Price : Rs. 28500 ($550)
In-spite of a number of features, Nokia Lumia 800 has given a few disappointments, like
1. No front camera for video-chatting even though the phone supports 3G.
2. Upto 730p HD Videos can only be played in Nokia Lumia 800, while other phones like Galaxy Note can play HD videos at even 1080p.
3. The price of Lumia 800 is also quite high, as compared to the other phones with similar features present in the market.
