I have an advice for all of you who accessed the comments to see what the people actually thinks about this phone, go to your carrier and ask for a demonstration of windows phone, most of the people who writes here seem to have a very weird and deep hate for Microsoft and windows phone 7, the funny thing is that most of them i am pretty sure is speaking without even having used a phone with windows phone 7 before, i could speak about my excellent personal experience with the system but i will be flagged as fanboy, this is something you need to give a try, do not listen to all the haters just create an opinion by personal experience.

Hope all this was helpful. Regards.
Will we have to pay to use Zune as well,then this phone is not a phone that everyone can afford to run an buy,Nokia as made a Big mistake choosing Windows instead of Meego or Symbian an even Android,just wonder if this will be the end of Nokia now,as Windows was made by Mr Elop just to help is previous employee Microsoft have some hope of succedeing in the mobile market
Now most of people focus one 's attention on smart phones. Can Nokia release special Tablet PC which can connect to LCD projector, Flat screen TV and also running by Window OS ect. .?
It's probably one of the most expensive mid ends (feature and specification wise) ever.
In reality this window lumia 800 is only 49% of the Great Nokia fone expectation....after waiting for a long 8 months.
anyway, Nokia N9 is one of best original (no Xerox copy )fone design with almost all specifications that a smart fone require.
no real multitask, no bluetooth file transfers, no usb mass storage, u have to use zune software for everything and its as bad a itunes.
no front face camera, no usb slot, u only can install apps from microsoft store.
dont buy this terrible phone! get the n9 if u like the design there is a white version

It is great on working with office documents like excel and word, and can open powerpoint slides but you can't edit them on phone. You can watch these kind of videos on youtube for more info. without a doubt you can't find any other phone to work with word or excel :)
i read a few more comments here now and i see a lot of confused ppl. Wake up guys, this is not Windows, its Windows Phone, its not Windows compatible with PC.
I think half of the windows lovers in this thread like the Lumia 800 becoz they misunderstood and dont understand the fundamental difference between win and winphone, and dont understand that intel instruction set is not compatible with ARM instruction set.
The other half is blind nokia followers. So maybe in total there is 1 or 2 persons here who understands what Lumia 800 is and still like it. The rest of us who understands it do not like it and wudnt dream of wasting money on this POS OS

WP is NOT windows compatible, even if it was then its still a different processor architecture and your PC programs would still not work. This is NOT intel-based hardware and it does NOT run the Windows we know from PCs.
jose lladoc, 12 Nov 2011I already have this since it's launch date. This unit is better than my 3310 that i have been ... moreDo you use the the windows software on the phone?
I want to use excel,power point and other programs of windows.
How user friendly is windows mobile and fast and easy do the programs work on this phone?
Nokia Just wasted the Design.
Phone has many missing features.
1. No Front camera
2. No TV out support
3. No NFC
4. Android and ios are jumping to 1080p Recording they are still stacked in 720p.
How can Nokia make the switch from everything being transfered to there phones the Best an Easiest,to Hard restrictions seems totally odd,an Batterylife with Windows just lasting 1 day from 2-3 days with the Nokia N8,people might like the look of Lumia 800 but the cost of Buying an Running it being to costly,this phones price will have to be cut Rapidly before people will give themselves of trying it out,Elop to Flop.N9 or N8 better value
