Nokia Lumia 800 design story

This is very interesting indeed. Nokia has revealed a design story and explains the look of the Lumia 800 (opens in new tab), how it's made, why it's made the way it is and how benefits consumers. As you'll be able to see and read in our product review, the Lumia 800 does indeed look and feel great, making the owner excited to use the handset.

From the single piece of injection-molded polycarbonate to the 8MP camera sporting f/2.2 Carl Zeiss lens, taking elements from the N9 and loading Windows Phone onto the handset is presented to be a winner. Nokia attempts to keep to traditions and what the company is best known for; hardware, design and production.

  • hopefully early next year we will get the 800, and we may get lucky with a ffc and extras since they have more time to move the gizzards and add it in.. that, imo is the reason why we wont be geting the 800 in nov.

  • TL;DR version."Yo Elop! What's the deadline?""Yesterday, bro!""Damn... Alright crew, here's what we gonna do. Take the N9, strip out the FFC. Toss in a Qualcomm chip with a little mango flavoring. Bada bing, bada boom. We're done."
  • Are they made in Finland or....China?
  • You'd think that if it was made in Finaland that it would be 'a better, authentic build'; let me tell you - the first N8 that I purchased, made in Findland, AND defective!My second, and current N8 - made in China, and not a single issue :)
  • N9 OS sucks has wp 7.5 mango OS so much better.
