Lumia 800 white version announced and hands on [Video]

To fit in nicely with Nokia showing off the upcoming Lumia 800 white version, SlashGear have got their hands on the device. Looking fairly impressive, this handset features a unique feature that differentiates this version from the other themed 800s. As can be seen in the above video (as well as the photo shots below) the white 800 sports a glossy finish, bouncing light in all manner of directions, and looks almost identical to the N9 variant. 

Don't allow the glossy look to fool you though, this is still a polycarbonate unibody that has been dyed all the way through. The white Lumia 800 is expected to be available later this month in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Finland, Poland and Switzerland, with other countries to follow. Check out a few shots of the handset after the break. So, what colour are you?

The color looks nice. But then you are showing the Lumia 800 in my book this is the best looking Mobile device on the market today. It just screams out sexy!

It doesn't show scratches. The phone is made out of some kind of dyed plastic so the shell is the same color all the way through.

It will come, and I've heard a matte red will come too, but that might just be said because a random pic appeared.

Someone needs to tell that guy that you don't have to actually tap on the arrow to get to the app list - just swipe left.  

Very nice looking phone. I wonder if they went the glossy feel because it will be easier to clean because of the white

Would love matte red too lol.. Oh the options.. Nokia is certainly establishing itself as the leader again.. I think they made the white glossy because if it was matt it would look dull.

Ah I wish it was matte white instead of glossy white. But it still looks pretty cool, hopefully it comes to Microsoft stores!
