Battery Fix for Nokia Lumia 800; is that a Nokia mini-tablet running Windows Phone?
There have been some users of the Nokia Lumia 800 who have been experiencing some problems with the battery. Some units of the phone can only see less than 1000mAh instead of the full 1500mAh that the stock battery offers. As a result, there have been complaints of the battery draining even while being plugged in at night to recharge.

Carrier 3 Italy says it has received a notice from Nokia that says that a fix is coming to repair the battery in the form of an update scheduled for January 18th. If you can't wait that long, you can immediately swap your unit for a new one.

While the Nokia Lumia 800 has not yet made its way to the States, there is speculation that Verizon and AT&T have been testing an LTE enabled model for an eventual launch. And speaking of Nokia, Lumia, and the U.S., at the Nokia event announcing that the Lumia 710 will be coming to T-Mobile, the manufacturer's U.S. president, Chris Weber, was sporting some type of electronic name plate. Or was it something more?

According to website BooredatWork, Weber was holding a 3 inch "Nokia Windows Phone pocket tablet like device." It had no physical buttons and while BooredatWork said it had no idea what it was nor did it have any specs for the device, they claim that it definitely ran Windows Phone. WPCentral says that it is merely an electronic badge/media device and that could be more likely especially since the design on the badge is the exact same one used on Nokia's media invitation for its CES 2012 event next month in Las Vegas.
