Nokia has just announced it’s Windows based phone the Nokia Lumia 800 and710. Lumia will be running on the latest Windows 7.5 Mango OS instead of MeeGo it does makes me wonder why does every fucking smartphone OS name is derived from a name of a food, get a life!!!. Anyway, this is a possible move by Nokia to forge a closer alliance with Microsoft and a move away from the MeeGo OS although N9 is the first phone using the MeeGo OS.
At a glance, the design of Lumia 800 phone looks very similar to the Nokia N9. Much of the functions would be rather similar to N9 minus and plus a few perks. This phone runs on a slighly higher 1.4GH processor , 512 MB RAM, 16GB internal storage and has the same 3.7 inches AMOLED touchscreen Gorilla glass display. It lacks of front camera compared to N9 and it is using the same Carl Ziess 8 MP camera that is capable of 720P video recording..
Expected Availability ?
The Nokia Lumia 800 is priced at 585USD and it’s predicted to cost around Rm 1800 in Malaysia and available in 3 colors choices magenta, cyan and black. In terms of available this phone should be available on China, Singapore and asia on early 2012, however it will be available a few months earlier in Europe. So you guy will have to wait till next year to have a hold of this phone in Malaysia.
Estimated price : RM 1800
