Such a great looking phone! The design and materials are perfect. Harmony! I can only wait anxiously for the Super Spec'd Lumia 900 (Ace)... This here is an R8, but the Ace is a R8 V12!

You must really be a fanboy to compare phones with supercars.

it has gorilla. Check on the website. Nexus doesn't have gorilla.
Noki uses gorilla for almost every touchscreen phone.

Wow!!! Great....
1 question is it a different Gorilla Glass or all manufactures uses same Gorilla Glass?

Gorilla Glass is a product by Corning. So manufacturers will order their glass from corning but with different requirements like size and in the case of the N9, slightly curved around the edges.

Cool! Even if i had a device with Gorilla Glass, I can't risk it to do a torture test on its screen.

Why do they feel the need to do this when the N8's torture test has already proven that Gorila glass is frigging awesome?

I've had an N8 for 15 months now and have treated it with little care. The aluminum body's chipped in some places though the paint dosn't run off. The glass off the camera and front screen however is perfectly 'new'. No scratches whatsoever.

he does everything so gently... like how he drops the keys..

nevertheless i do believe nokia lumia 800 is very sturdy after reading about the 2-3 story drop from the apt before. :p i want it.

The key and the coins part is a joke. I don't know why he even bothered with those after trying to scratch it with a cork opener first. If that didn't scratch it I highly doubt coins or slightly dropping keys on it will scratch the screen. But point proven.
