This is amazing Nokia Goes from Old Os Symb. S60 to MeeGo and now window. About a year ago Samsung & HTC try the Window but no one was interested so, why Nokia new VP follow the wrong direction and kill MeeGo which did look better and it could of been improved to be as good or better than Android.
It seems like Nokia would understand Market better than I do by watching others mistake. Now they have another new phone suppose to be Nokia Entry back to market and based on what I read phone has some problems beside Nokia using wrong OS. Hope I am wrong but no think so.
why the price of Lumia 800 is very high? similar to high end smart fone.
It is only an average mid end smart fone,
specifications is not that good......
no video calling facilities, bluetooth is useless without boring zune, no NFC file... photo... video games.no memory card slot.
Who has this phone and has used it? What I am looking for in a phone is good battery life, ability to download and read books, smooth operation and good social media integration. Does this phone tick all those boxes?
Is there any successor for Nokia Netbook? Probably it will be powered with Mango WP7.
I hope nobodody will like this phone so I could buy it cheaply on eBay,lol
i work in a phone shop ive got one and love it.It just works! Yep battery is not great but a fix is on the way and through experience most high end smartphones are on a par. You can talk about specs until you are blue in the face I just want a smartphone to do the job. So its not Android , and this is a bad thing??? Have an open mind try one guys variety is the spice of life there is room for everyone.Spread the Love.

Not value for money product . no bluetooth sharing , no music no videos .
After one year nokia came up with this.... They could have launched this phone the very next day they got collaborated with microsoft....
How could Nokia make the switch to Windows,as they use to produce phones that made it so simple to be able to transfer Music an photos between other peoples phones an pcs,Bluetooth now useless on the Lumia 800,an the Screen taken up so much space because of the stupid buttons on Windows phones,you to download themes for my Nokia phones but not with this phone,Galaxy S2 worth more value than this phone,an if you best settings on this phone batterylife can last 2-3 days
Got a problem with Lumia, this is my second handset from Orange now the phone has serious issues
extremely poor battery, not detecting when charger is in, screen freezing eventually the phone shut down and never restarted.
Again diabolical battery life, when I send a MMS the phone reboots, still freezes and worst of all will randomly drop calls.
For such an expensive handset these issues should not happen.
Orange however have put my status back to upgrade as I literally told them to stick this phone, and I will be choosing another phone when there is one that tickles my fancy, but I will be using my old trusty Blackberry Storm 2 from now on never its never let me down.
I used to be a Nokia fan, since the NGAGE, N95 times. But now Nokia is really behind the times. Lumia has nice design but is no match for Samsung Galaxy SII and iPhone. BTW: keen to go on WP7 but still no good phone around after so much time of WP7 in the market. Minimum requirements are that of GSII plus 64 or 128GB space, 4.5'' screen, 2500mAh battery. If Nokia is the manufacturer so much the better!!!
Mobilemaster, 30 Nov 2011Please compare this phone with the Samsung Galaxy S2, or with the Galaxy Nexus. I know that th... moreYou only need high-enough specifications to be able to achieve the desired user experience and performance.
Both WP7 and iOS seem to be able to acheive more with lower specs - and so, to these OS'es - Ghz, RAM, Cores - isn't as important.
Not saying this device is perfect though.. I'm looking forward to the Lumia 900 - it seems to be more a high-end device, whereas this seems to be closer to mid-range.
