Description

Nokia Lumia 800 - the first Nokia Windows Phone! Stephen Elop actually went so far as calling it "the first real Windows Phone". Available in black, cyan and magenta, it is crafted in the ergonomic pillow-shaped form of the Nokia N9, made out of deep-colored polycarbonate, and sporting a 3.7" 480x800 pixels ClearBlack display, as expected. The handset is 0.48" (12.1mm) thick, on 124g of weight. It is powered by a 1.4GHz processor, with 16GB of internal storage, 1540mAh battery and a microSIM slot. An 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss lens sports f/2.2 aperture and an optimized dual-LED flash aims to avoid washing out the details. A lot of the initial presentation was spent to tout features that already come with Windows Phone Mango - People Hub, Pictures Hub, Microsoft Office Hub, IE9 Mobile, Xbox Live, 25GB SkyDrive storage, etc. - which are a first for a Nokia handset, of course.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
