Finally two giants have joined hands and come up with a device which everyone always dreamt of. Nokia Lumia 800, the first phone from the joint venture of Nokia-Microsoft is about to hit the market in around November 2011 and has already got a huge response from users worldwide. Also known as Nokia Sea Ray, this phone is believed to give high end challenge to the Galaxy series especially Galaxy Nexus.
To start off with the specifications, this phone has all the very necessary requirements like the support for all 2G as well as the 3G networks with a high end touch screen to make your work easier. The touch screen is an AMOLED capacitive one which supports 480X800 pixels screen resolution with a screen size of 3.7 inches which seems to be quite big. That is just not the end as the screen supports scads of features which include Nokia Clear Black display, Multi-touch input method, Proximity sensor for auto turn-off, Accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate and Touch-sensitive controls. Regarding the sound and phonebook, it is really good and supports all the latest trends. It has an internal memory of 16 GB with a 512 MB RAM with no options for card slot. But with a memory of 16 GB why would you need extra memory slot. It has whole lot of a place for a mobile. The phone even supports Class 33 GPRS and EDGE with a HSDPA 14.4 Mbps 3G support which is the latest in the field. Finally about the camera which is good with an 8 MP lens supporting 3264x2448 pixels, Carl Zeiss optics with autofocus and dual-LED flash but does not have a secondary camera which is really a demerit for a phone of this kind.
This was all the phone supports. Now let’s dig into the internals of the device. The best thing about this phone is probably the OS which is Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. Now this OS is a real one which will surely take this phone to lot of users. It even boasts a 1.4 GHz processor and Qualcomm MSM8255 chipset with 3D Graphics HW Accelerator. It has a GPS inbuilt with A-GPS support and exclusive features which include MicroSIM card support only, SNS integration, Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, Digital compass, MP3/WAV/eAAC+/WMA player, MP4/H.264/H.263/WMV player, Document viewer, Video/photo editor, Voice memo/command/dial, Predictive text input.
Nokia finally has decided to come up with devices which can give real competition to its rivals and this phone is indeed a device to do so. Critics and users around the world have great expectation from this phone and hopefully Nokia will keep its promise with such great features in the phone. The dashy look of the phone with full touch screen will surely be a factor for its success among the youth. Moreover its size and price is also another factor which can make this device quite popular as it’s not too large to carry. Now it’s simply worth to wait until this device hits the market at this yearend as it has already got huge user response prior to its release.
