Nokia making-of video for N9 shows the detail and precision in the Lumia 800

It's no secret that the Lumia 800 is a Nokia N9 with a different OS flashed on it, some capacitive buttons and a camera key--in fact we've seen both devices side by side here and they're the same device in every which way.

So it's kind of cool to see just how the N9's body is precision tooled in Nokia's factory in this above video. In it you see how some parts are drilled, honed and then put together by hand, reinforcing the notion that Nokia means quality.

  • The Lumia 800 is a Nokia N9 with a different OS flashed on it? Really?Where's my front-facing camera? Where are my 64gb of internal memory?Give me this two things I would change my Optimus 7 for it in a blink...Really, what use has Ovi Maps when it has to fight for the measly 16gb of memory with all my music (which actually is around 25gb...)?
  • Thanks for the highlighting this video, but I think you're doing Nokia quite a diservice based on Engadget's spec comparison - http://www.engadget.com/2011/10/26/nokia-lumia-800-vs-nokia-n9-the-tale-...
