We were all waiting to see what NokiSoft would do and it looks like their first collaboration into the smartphone space are two beautiful, somewhat low priced – unique looking handsets. The Lumia 710 and its more sophisticated older brother, the Lumia 800 seem like rushed pieces of hardware from Nokia but I believe the goal was to release a viable smartphone in 2011 (for presence) and really enter the markt in the first half of 2012. Specs: 3.7″ 480×800 TFT display – 1.4Ghz Single Core Snapdragon+512MB RAM – 5 MegaPixels Camera – 16Gb Storage – Weight 126g – Price: €270 Full Specs
Those looking for a better camera and the all familiar N9 design, should consider the Lumia 800 and while looking the same externally, they are somewhat different on the inside. Still, I don’t blame Nokia for keeping with the N9′s unique design – it was one of the best things to come out of Nokia in the last years, except for the OS it was running. So, what are the main differences between the Lumia and the N9? The Lumia 800 has a single core 1.4 Ghz Snapdragon processor instead of a single core 1Ghz – 512MB of Ram instead of 1GB – 16GB Storage instead of 64GB. Additionally, the Lumia 800 comes with a 3.7″ TFT Display – 8 MegaPixel Camera – weight 142g – Price: €420 – Full Specs Interestingly, no front facing camera on either the Lumia 710 nor the 800 but still a good showing.
