In response to some of the posts (which seem to be from people with no hands on experience with a Windows Phone):

All windows phones have a minimum set of features - (e.g. FM radio, Document editor, in built Microsoft office, which has OneNote, Word, Excel, PPT; I think that things like gyroscope, gps, MS office, etc. are provided as min. features for all windows phones)


Some random things I like with Windows phone (I have a samsung focus):

I use OneNote for taking random notes, TOdo's etc. - and these are automatically synced to "skydrive" - which means I have them on my phone anywhere I go. Great thing is that I can edit/add notes - and they are synced back to my PC.

Camera is great and very convenient to use (I find myself using it much more often than other phones I have had).

The 3 buttons at the bottom are consistent across the OS/apps (all of them are used very frequently).

Contrary to what most people say (I had the same opinion before) - zune is pretty simple, and has made life much more simple than manually copying files. ** zune does allow mp3's from your PC to be synced to the phone. (All pics/music/videos from my phone/PC are now synced with each other/always current).


Only issue I may think of is the inbuilt 8gb memory (though I still have only used half of that).

....wrong decision of Nokia boss is leading to doom.
Only Meego OS/ Symbian OS will revive the Company.
.... A great great Shame to Mr Elop.

Nokia lumia 800 is the Xerox copy of the original Nokia N9,
.....but check yourself ,the major difference is Nokia lumia does not have video call facility, no wi-fi hotspot, Ram only 512 mb, internal memory only 1/4 of N9, no dolby
sound support, no JAVA SUPPORT, smaller screen size, non customizable fixed Window custom(looks very ugly)........

This N9-twin Nokia Lumia 800 is expected to reach the shores of the Philippines January 2012 as part of Nokia Philippines' fresh offerings for the New Year!

Unfortunately Stephen Elop used to work for microsoft and refuse to see what a joke WP is.

You are not allowed to put your files on this fone, and you are not allowed to share via bluetooth. Everything must go through Zune and other paid services. Got an mp3 collection? forget it, they will not let you put it on this fone. Its a closed ecosystem, you must pay for everything you want to put in this fone and you cant get it in or out without doing things the microsoft way.

Hmmmm i wonder why they didnt include a micro sd card slot. The original Samsung Focus had one so i dont see why nokia neglected to put one in.

Nokia Lumia 800 can be great phone if it have secondary camera PLUS Nokia N8 camera lens sensor. Unfortunately this phone not for photo lovers.

Also to compare latest Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, then by specifications no doubt best are HTC Titan:

http://www.gsmarena.com/compar...dPhone2=4027

And TOP 7 Windows Phones are:

01___01. HTC Titan
02___02. Nokia Lumia 800
03___02. Nokia Lumia 710
04___02. Samsung Omnia W I8350
05___03. HTC Radar
06___03. LG Jil Sander Mobile
07___03. Acer Allegro

By the way I am Nokia lover but unfortunately sad by poor photo sensors installed into WP 7.5 Mango. Nokia, wake up! Why you not installed same photo camera sensor as it got Nokia N8?

At this times Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II, iPhone 4S and some others got better photo camera that this new Nokia Lumia 800 :(

Until photo camera sensor quality on a new Nokia phones not be better compare with old Nokia N8, the not gonna spend money for these phones!

I REPEAT: all windows mobiles including this model suffer from the BIG LIST OF "NO":
NO:bluetooth transfer,mass storage,card slot,free apps
IN PLUS zune software like itunes must be used for syncronisation with pc and the boring menu is a mess
WINDOWS ON MOBILES is already used for enaugh time behind to realize that no one wants this crappy software full with limitations

I'll definitly try the Lumia out. Knowing nokia it's bound to be high quality all round and windows surely has the ability to deliver something special. This just might work , give it time dont kill it before it takes off.
