Nokia announces the Lumia 800

Tell us you every thought you'd see something like this with Windows Phone, and we'll eat your old WinMo device. Nokia today in London at Nokia World (we're all up in that, by the way) announced the Lumia 800. To say it's visually stunning is probably the understatement of the year. Let's flesh it out:

  • Single-piece body.
  • 3.7-inch AMOLED display at 800x480 resolution, with the glass seamlessly melting into the body
  • 1.4 GHz Qualcomm MSM 8255 processor with hardware acceleration
  • Windows Phone 7 Mango
  • 1450 mAh battery
  • 16GB internal storage, 512MB programmable memory
  • Quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900); quad-band 3G (850/900/1900/2100); 14.4Mbps
  • 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss lens and LED flash
  • 720p video capture at 30 fps
  • Dimensions: 116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm
  • Weight: 142 grams
  • Wifi: 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • aGPS

Plus a bunch of Nokia services thrown in, including Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps, Nokia Music and Mix Radio. Plus all the Xbox support we've come to expect, and Internet Explorer 9. Look for it to for 420 Euros.
