Nokia Lumia 800 may get DLNA support
It's been done by other manufacturers and it seems likely that Nokia will be doing it too: bringing DLNA support to the Nokia Lumia 800 via an app from the Windows Phone Marketplace. This is still a rumor at this point, and possibly not even a very well sourced rumor, but still one that seems pretty believable.

DLNA is one of the top notch features for electronics these days. It is really just a compatibility standard set forth by the Digital Living Network Alliance, so all of your media-filled devices can play well together on your home network. This means being able to share music or video across your computer, mobile devices, TV and stereo. Luckily, even if a device doesn't come with the protocols baked in, they can be added later, and this seems like the plan for the Nokia Lumia 800.

The good team of MobileTechWorld did some digging and found that the requisite files to make DLNA work already exist on the Lumia 800, it's just missing the app to run it. There has been a "confirmation" of sorts as well, because a Nokia Care rep essentially said that DLNA support would be coming through a Marketplace app, but of course care reps aren't known for their accurate inside information on these things.

Dude! the same thing happened in Nokia N9, but over a different issue
the N9 had fm radio hardware with an fm transmitter in it,
But NOKIA didn't add a software to run it it. Still there are some hopes because the first lg Windows Phone had dlna but an app had to be downloaded from the Windows Phone market. It would be more better for nokia to ask how lg did it. Infact just google up lg optimus 7 dlna installment because I was sure that I saw a place in which the article stated that you have to download a specific app from the marketplace
