Lovely phone my favorite yet! Feels nice in the hand it's fast and is very smart very good phone !
erick, 23 Feb 2012nokia has the best offline navigation app on all mobile phone.. lumia has no offline navigatio... moreSymbian is dead. It never had any meaningful presence in the U.S. which is the most important smartphone market in the world. Nokia will be replacing it with Meego on the lower end and Windows Phone 7 on the higher end phones.
had a chance to try this phone through a local at&t & one of the store worker let me tried his, it was absolutely stunning and one of a kind. I've been waiting for Nokia to come back and Nokia is truly an phone company that cars about humanity and people. Good luck
nokia give the wp a revolution with good camera good design and so on. developer must work with wp 7.5 for app. as a new operating system many features which is not included during release of lumia 800 its now given by nokia by different upgradation may be lumia 900 is the perfect mobile set for wp.
WP7 is mostly sold as referral in www.univercell.in one customer buying and referring others... it will take a very long time to adapt wp7 but its going healthy...
Eloop should learnt a lessons from committing suicidal attempt.
........Still MEEGO and SYMBIAN os is doing twice superior to the restricted ZUNE from the dustbin.
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2012Lumina Vaporware.. The 18th came and went and No Lumina 900 from Nokia... Just another way to ... moreYou need to not believe everything you read on the internet. The March 18 release date was not official, it was a "leak" so of questionable accuracy. You'll see the official release date has already been posted. And also that a white model will be available 2 weeks later.
Don't know if you've noticed but until the iPhone, phone release dates from ALL manufacturers had been notoriously fluid, especially with required carrier testing and modification.
Lumina Vaporware.. The 18th came and went and No Lumina 900 from Nokia... Just another way to tick off potential customers and loose market.
Several commercial entities are reported to have waited until March 18th and when the phone did not produce itself, (Surprise.. Isn’t this how Nokia blew it sales several years ago with other vaporphones) have re-up'd their two year contracts with different models. Leaking a date to hype up marketing and failing to follow through with that date is the best way to lose loyalty and potential customers. You would have thought Nokia would have learned its lesson by now but obviously it did not.... Now all these geeks *me included) that had to have a new phone and held out with superglue, duct tape, or older models snagged up from ebay as temp devices were left with no other choice but to re-up their contracts with different phones. Way to lose customer loyalty and a potential comeback in to the market Nokia.... Fail. SO Nokia, at the least before you cause yourself more damage and humiliation, push an official press release to announce launch date before you push away more potential customers..
What should have been your reclaim to fame is not in the IT world being looked at as how will Nokia handle this damage control from this new disaster….
The glory is over, and the vaporware phone damage for the phone that did not release on reported dates falters and damage control begins… Nokia, listen, You have completely turned off a large group of potential customers, and the longer you hold private, the real release date (if there is even a Lumina 900 to be sold, who knows at this point) the more customers and potential buyers you will lose…..
Not following through with touted release dates, does not make smartphone users WANT to wait longer. It makes them resentful and makes them want to immediately switch product brands.. Apparently Nokia still hasn’t figured that out…
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2012wait it come out already? As an attempt to sell the phone well, it has been distributed to att employees for use ahead of launch.
I have a window phone. I don't like it. Not much app and can't change much unless jailbreak/unlock but it cost $99.00 from Microsoft. I stick with Android or iPhone ( I have all 3)
I'm sure the build quality and hopefully the Nokia brand will help bring some'premium' to WP. It's not going to be an iPhone, but with Apollo I bet they take another step in that direction in terms of hand-feel etc. for this market. That said, the biggest Market is China and Microsoft/Nokia are being very smart about focusing their initial efforts to get a beachhead there with good, efficient phones at a price point that the iPhone can't get close to. Tango will make it even easier.
Anyhow compare these specs to the Samsung Focus S.... And then there will be the price.
As for comparing the phone with Apple's product, meh. WP is so much more refined as an OS and for functional withouth a compromise in ease of use. They'll leapfrog each other of course and ultimately it's about ecosystem.
8 and Live.com will make it or break it.
