Never gonna happen man, windows phone is NOT windows, and even if it was you would need an EXE file and all the linked DLL files compiled for ARM instruction set, as Intel instruction set is not even remotely similar to ARM.

I understand why Nokia went for Windows OS. As I've seen a lot of videos of this, windows OS is a very smooth OS compared to the android; probably in par with the IOS.

I use android(HTC Sensation XE), and whenever I see Windows OS or IOS I always wish that android would be as butter smooth as them. An EXAMPLE would be the transition of the message UI when you turn your phone on the side. On android, the transition would be like switching the lights on and off, and that's it; on IOS and windows it would be like the lights will dim first before it is turned off completely. I guess they're aiming for the user interface exp rather than the specs.

me too really love Nokia lumia 800 design but it's useless to me ,
as I always made video call to my children in London from Mumbai.
regular video conference among our family members is common and lively inspite of blank long fone chatting over the sea.

Windows Phone Mango does not support two user mass memories - so if one already have 16GB eMMC built inside the phone, one cannot put a uSD-card slot.
So it is not Nokia's fault that Windows Phone Mango is so unmature OS.

Hi all,

Just got my Lumia for the last 2 days and I LOVE IT. Before you ask I had an iPhone 3gs (stolen) before and were currently windows phone 6 on HTC HD 2 (which I was generally happy with).
Since I got it I managed to :
- create all my email accounts + facebook and linkedIn in 5min top. Fact. No need for apps
- transferred all my contacts from my old phone using bluetooth. That worked a treat.
- Managed to send 20 comments on facebook which I had never done it in 2years before. That is that simple.
what I like is the fact that you can link contacts together (e.g. a contact with his linkedId and facebook profile) and see all interactions with that contact from one place. So too to interact with them. The "people" hub as they call it is superb.

I know there is no front video (there was in my old phone but never used it) and the camera only records in 720px. And it has a "dearth of apps" as the papers call it. However it reminds me of the Macintosh in the 90s. They do had a dearth of apps compared to PC (very few games ,etc...) but that didn't make them any less good.
That's the same with the Lumia and Windows Phone. Market Share is tiny compared to Apple but the look & feel is different and being the small player they have been forced to do things differently. I.e. simple, clever and all integrated. I find it works perfectly.


I am now listening to Nokia music having connected my phone to my stereo. Again, no set-up/apps was required and music selection is good. It's a mix done for you and I chose the classic rock theme and have listened to Pulp, Stairway to Heaven, U2: The Joshua Tree, simon & Garfunkel, currently playing Sweet home alabama.

I think there is a few things that could be improved but I can't really say if it's part of the Apple or Android experience.

I would rate it 4.5 out of 5. Super design, super screen, intuitive navigation and ease of use. In 2 words : it simply works and looks awesome.

Those negative comments about this phone is because most of people don't like Nokia and Microsoft, and imagine who will like Both of them in one. But i like both of them, because Nokia is most experienced mobile phone producer and they choose right way of production by choosing Windows Phone OS
