Nokia’s make-or-break flagship kit Lumia 800 hits store shelves today, just 24 hours ahead of its rival in the bumper Q4 period the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
The Lumia 800 is the first phone from the Nokia stable to run Microsoft’s Windows Mango operating system, after the phone-maker inked a historic deal with the software giant earlier this year.
Taking its design cues from the MeeGo-powered N9, the smartie features a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, an eight-megapixel camera and augments the familiar tile-based Mango interface with exclusive services focused on sports, music and navigation.
On sale on almost all major UK networks after O2 revealed it will not be ranging it, the Lumia 800’s chances against the Android Ice Cream Sandwich-toting Galaxy Nexus will be buoyed by keen price points for a high-end, brand new smartphone.
Three is offering the phone free from £30 per month. Head to Phones 4U and you can grab it from £26 per month - also sans upfront fee – on Orange.
