Nokia Lumia 800 Black 01

There are a lot of Nokia enthusiasts around the world, and today they are all eager to see what device the Finland-based company reveals at Nokia World 2011.

Today is a big day for Nokia, as Nokia World 2011 debuted at 9AM, UK Time, and Stephen Elop, Nokia CEO, will present the new Windows Phone Mango-powered line-up of their company.

Stephen Elop, was the first one to greet the guests at the Nokia World event, and apart from the Nokia Asha range which was already presented at the event – made of four Symbian-powered devices – everyone expects the Finland-based company to announce three new smartphones running on Microsoft’s Windows Phone Mango operating system.

Nokia Lumia 800, the flag ship of the Windows Phone Mango line-up, debuted today, in an announcement made by Stephen Elop. Nokia Lumia 800, codenamed Searay, along with Nokia Lumia 710 were leaked just hours ahead of Nokia World 2011, then Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 710 were officially presented at Nokia World.

Just like most of the tech blogs around the world predicted, Nokia Lumia 800 borrows the slick, but classy design of Nokia N9, the MeeGo-powered device the Finland-based company presented a few months ago, but later decided to kill it, in order to fully focus on the development of the Windows Phone Mango smartphones.

The Nokia Lumia 800 was revealed to the attendants of the Nokia World 2011 event, and, just like everyone predicted, it will be the flagship of the Lumia line-up (“Lumia” means “light,” and represents the dawns of a new Nokia start).

Nokia Lumia 800 is powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone Mango OS and its design is underpinned by Nokia N9. Lumia 800 comes in three color schemes (black, cyan and magenta) and was developed to offer great performance in social networking and Internet browsing.

Because Nokia Lumia 800 is a smartphone running on Windows Phone Mango it comes with Internet Explorer 9 and the famous tiles-based Microsoft’s user interface. Nokia promised super-fast social network access, integrated communication threads and an easy way to manage and group your contacts.

The Nokia Windows Phone flagship comes with a 3.7-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display, that fits perfectly with the elegant design of the smartphone. The Windows Phone capacitive buttons are there, along with the Volume Up / Volume Down, Power and Camera dedicated buttons. Speaking about camera, learn that Nokia Lumia 800 comes with 8MP, helped by Carl Zeiss lenses, capable of HD video recording.

The new Nokia Lumia 800 is powered by a single core 1.4GHz processor with a graphics processing unit. When it comes to storage capacity, Lumia 800 features 16GB of internal storage, plus 25GB of free SkyDive storage in the cloud for your documents, pictures video and audio files.

Nokia announced that the flagship of the Lumia line-up will hit the market in November 2011, at a price of 420 EUR (about 580 USD, if you are reading this from US), taxes not included.
