So we got to play a bit with the Nokia 710 Lumia which was just announced here at Nokia World. Overall it's a solid phone with great build quality and those fantastic physical keys in front (which don't feel "cheap" at all to us).
The device while not as elegant as the 800 is still a winner in our books with an excellent camera and that amazing Nokia screen on board. Plus the white color is a nice change for Windows Phone.
Check out the video for our quick impression and if you want more, we'll shoot another later. And yes, the Nokia 800 Lumia video is on its way too...sit tight. Sorry for the alarm by the way. Looks like someone really wanted a new Nokia phone!

I'd like to see what all the diagnostics apps do :)
The more I go checking WP7 in the shops the more I think Microsoft should build a fictious user account with pictures, sky-drive albums, office files, friends, twitter, facebook, apps with livetiles, etc. and add it by default to all demo-models.If they did, I would guess their sales performance would increase by several folds. To be honest, with nothing showing in your phone at the shop is very difficult to grasp how great of an OS this is, and how different from anything else on the market.
You hit the nail on the head; They should use pictures, friends, and family members of their employees as contacts, facebook/twitter/live to show the liveliness of the OS, which then would allow employees to show the deep integration. Get This message to MS ASAP so we can sell some units. It's been a hit in my office because my device is fully setup. Promote, Promote, Promote!!!
wonder if we can create a petition to get this going :P
