Dan Lyons enjoys the design and feel of both the Lumia 800 and the OS

Dan Lyons, known across the bloggersphere for "Fake Steve Jobs", was comparing the "two best phones on the market" - the iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Lyons took both handsets for a spin, but turned out to fall for the underdog. The Nokia Lumia 800, powered by Windows Phone Mango, took the fake Steve Jobs by surprise with how great the device looks and feels, as well as the Metro UI.

"Recently I had a Nokia Lumia 800 running Windows Phone in the mix — and every time the phones rang, the Nokia was the one I picked up. The design is just really nice, and it feels great in your hand. I’m doing an interview with the head of design at Nokia next week, and I’m anxious to talk to him about the Lumia 800. It really is a gorgeous device, and the Windows interface is really fresh and different."

Not a huge deal, but interesting to see a look at two competitor handsets (and platforms) turns out to bring Microsoft on top. Head on over to Dan Lyon's blog for the full read through.
