    Introduction
    It will take crowds erupting in delight to
    silence the ring of the "burning platform"
    speech in the Nokia Lumia 800's ears. The
    speaker being Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and
    the burning platform Symbian.
    As Nokia are starting over, the Lumia 800
    would do well not to look back. It's certainly
    beyond the ifs and buts. A shadow still
    lingers though. And there are people out there
    - loyal Nokia users too - who would've jumped
    in the fire with MeeGo rather than the
    freezing waters of Windows Phone.

    But it was for others to decide. The N9 was
    ordered to share its impressive unibody design
    with the Lumia 800. Good decision by Nokia -
    not saying fair - to give its WP7 pioneer a
    strong start. There are some Windows Phone
    mandated changes like the touch-sensitive
    Back, Menu and Search keys and a hardware
    shutter key.
    The screen lost 0.2" and 54 pixels in height to
    make room for the capacitive controls. The
    oddly positioned secondary camera is gone as
    well. Still, the image quality of the screen
    seems unchanged - and we quite liked that
    AMOLED unit.
    What else has changed? Well, there's a new
    chipset, among other things. To make this
    short, here're the pros and cons of the Nokia
    Lumia 800.
    Key features
    Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support
    Quad-band 3G with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and
    5.7 Mbps HSUPA support
    3.7" 16M-color AMOLED capacitive
    touchscreen of 480 x 800 pixel resolution
    Scratch resistant Gorilla glass display with
    anti-glare polarizer
    8 megapixel autofocus camera with dual LED
    flash, 720p@27fps video recording and fast
    f/2.2 lens
    Windows Phone 7.5 OS (Mango)
    1.4GHz Scorpion CPU, Adreno 205 GPU,
    Qualcomm MSM8255 chipset, 512MB of
    RAM
    Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
    Non-painted polycarbonate unibody, curved
    screen
    GPS receiver with A-GPS support and free
    lifetime voice-guided navigation
    Digital compass
    16GB on-board storage
    Active noise cancellation with a dedicated mic
    Built-in accelerometer and proximity sensor
    Standard 3.5 mm audio jack; FM Radio with
    RDS
    microUSB port
    Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP and EDR
    Impressively deep and coherent SNS
    integration throughout the interface
    Main disadvantages
    Display is much dimmer than the N9's display
    No Flash or Silverlight support in browser
    No USB mass storage (file management and
    sync pass only through Zune)
    No video calls and no front-facing camera
    either
    Non-user-replaceable battery
    No memory card slot (and no 64GB version
    like the N9)
    microSIM card slot
    No native DivX/XviD support, videos have to
    be transcoded by Zune
    A strong showing by Nokia, but it's a bit late
    to the Windows Phone party. They do have
    the design experience from being in the
    business longer than almost anyone else and
    they have Nokia Drive as their ace in the hole.
    The fate of the company rests on Windows
    Phone Nokias being a success and much of
    that weight falls on the shoulders of the
    Lumia 800. It won't carry it alone, but it's the
    leader of the pack, the attention grabber.
    Nokia Lumia 800 at ours
    And sure enough, it has our attention. But it's
    you the Nokia Lumia 800 has to wow, so sit
    down and let us tell you about its hardware.
