Finally, the clock struck and the audience clapped as Nokia CEO Stephen Elop made his presence on the big stage at the Nokia World event a few hours ago. And a new smartphone was added. The Nokia Lumia 800, earlier known as SeaRay, Sun, Nokia 800 was officially launched by Stephen today. And boy, what a beauty! According to Stephen Elop, it’s the ‘first real Windows Phone’.
Powered by an efficient 1.4GHz processor, the curved 3.7-inch ClearBlack LCD display is a visual treat supported by a black, cyan or magenta case. There are clear visible speaker holes along with a dedicated camera button for the f/2.2 8MP Carl Zeiss Tessar lens, unlike N9.
As we had earlier reported, this handset is pretty spacious coming aong with 16GB of internal storage plus free 25GB of SkyDrive storage to get the users started in the cloud.
The Nokia Lumia 800 also features Nokia Drive, a free turn-by-turn voice navigation program, a first for any Windows Phone, which shall be specially doled out with future Nokia Windows Phone handets.
Oops. We didn’t say you about Nokia Music with Mix Radio – a global service with no subscriptions or logins required for quite a many number of channels and the ESPN Sports Hub (these are specially-to-be-found on Nokia Windows Phone devices). And guess what, thirty one (31) operators and retailers are ranging Lumia 800 as the hero device which by far is the “Best ever response for a Nokia device.”
