What Mobile launched its annual poll in October, before the phone was even available in the UK. After thousands of readers cast their votes, the Nokia Lumia 800 came away with the Mobile Phone of the Year award. Nokia responded to the win by saying on its blog, “We’re delighted with the reactions to the Nokia Lumia 800, but this one caps them all.” Nokia went on to say, “We’d like to say a big thank-you to What Mobile readers for their support.”
What Mobile editor Richard Melville said, “It’s no secret that Nokia make great phones but with a new Windows Phone Mango operating system, great design and a competitive price, the Lumia 800 feels like real innovation for smartphones and, importantly, one that’s cool enough to attract everyone from gadget geeks to casual, fashion conscious phone users.”
Congratulations to Nokia on your first award for the Lumia 800. We look forward to hearing from users to find out if the phone lives up to their expectations.
