Nokia learned the lesson: UI is very important for users; with these "live view tiles" on Lumia 800 is IOS and Android who look boring now.

This isn't Android. It's a WP and it doesn't require to have dual cores and 1 gig of RAM to run smooth. It's a requirement for Android to compensate for its inefficiency. Google brainwashed you to think that having huge ram and a fast processor will make your Andriod phone runs smooth while in fact, it needs those to hide its flaws.
Maybe you need 1 gig of ram and dual cores to run some malware ridden app you got from the market? Maybe it will help speed up stealing your personal info. That's Android for you.

This is the start of the end of Android! In just a few years, Android will join WebOS in marketshare. People will now realize how bad Android is and how horrible the malware ridden Android Market is.
The OEMs stuff their Android phones with dual cores, and huge rams because Android needs it to run semi-decent. It's so inefficient unlike Windows Phone.
gnodeb, 26 Oct 2011hihi... "Interestingly, the only differences between both devices are the camera and the ... moreThe difference in screen, camera and storage size which justifies the €150 difference. The iPhone 4S only makes it up for storage capacity.
Sun Down, 26 Oct 2011I have no idea how the hell did you put up a 16 GB storage as ''too small'' for a smartphone. ... moreFor videos & music storage, 16GB is insufficient. With no SD card slot, cant add a memory card, I make full use of the card slot on my current Nokias. This makes me appreaciate the N9 64GB even more.
no front facing camera for an high phone really jezz

Alui, 26 Oct 2011Actually I like the 710 better. Hate the sharp corners of the 800. Too bad 710 does not have t... moreI'm not a fan for the concave too, I think convex would be better. If that phone hits face first, the screen would suffer a lot.

AnonD-1825, 26 Oct 2011lumia 800, only 16gb model?!?!?!? that's bad, that's way too small.I have no idea how the hell did you put up a 16 GB storage as ''too small'' for a smartphone. Most people are content with 8 GB you know.
Android is same price but has a looooot more features and they are about to get doubled with the next version...
Sweet. Go Nokia. Hopefully the 800 will be priced around $600 here.
AnonD-8941, 26 Oct 2011lumia don't come with n8 specs so sad!It is because Windows Phone is no better than Symbian at this stage.
