Nokia C1 leaks
Nok on wood, here comes
The Lumia 800 is Nokia's comeback phone. And what a comeback it is. With a gorgeous, curved screen, crisp white polycarbonite shell, it's a real looker. And with Windows Phone on board, tons of apps to choose from and exclusive Nokia music and navigation services, it's also a smartphone of rare quality.
Nokia really has pulled out all the stops for the Lumia 800. And in keeping with a phone whose name translates as 'light', this amazing handset heralds a new dawn for the handset-maker. It's that good.
Powered by Windows, the Lumia stands out for its amazingly cool and colourful screen layout organises features, apps and functions into handy themed hubs so you can get to whatever you want in seconds. Better still, the live tiles means that ever-changing information that you're interested in is sent directly to your homescreen so you can stay in the loop easier than ever before.
But because this is a Nokia Windows phone you also get some incredible exclusive services too. Not least is the excellent Sports Hub that lets you nominate a team and get info about results, new signings and any relevant news right where you want it.
And there are more practical services too. In particular, the amazing Nokia Drive. This features turn by turn directions and the superb Nokia Maps mapping software to turn your handset into a de facto satellite navigation device. Why pay out for a dedicated sat-nav, when your phone does the job just as well?
But that's not all. Also on board is an excellent eight megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens that delivers great results even in low light conditions. And it's just as good at video, recording 720p footage to add a new dimension to your home movies, especially when viewed on the Lumia 800's gorgeous 3.7-inch, high resolution Super AMOLED screen
Other features of the Lumia 800 include access to the XBox Live gaming service and the option to transfer information between your console and the phone, a choice of tens of thousands of apps and games from the Windows Marketplace, 16GB of internal storage, a document viewer and editor with access to mobile versions of all key Microsoft Office packages and a powerful 1.4GHz processor to keep everything ticking over super smoothly.
