Nokia says it will soon issue two scheduled updates for the Lumia 800 that address power efficiency
Despite claims from some users that their newly-bought Nokia Lumia 800 seems to drain battery faster than expected from today's smartphones (which already means pretty fast), the Finns say they haven't been able to pinpoint any specific issue that would lead to erratic battery life on some units.

Nokia has two scheduled updates in store for the Lumia 800, though. The first one is to come in about 2 weeks, and will enhance the power efficiency of the handset further, optimizing the phone post-launch.

The second is apparently due to arrive in January, and allow for rapid charging of the full 1450mAh capacity of the battery, which is now seemingly limited to 1300mAh for some reason:



Teething problems are to be expected with a totally new handset, especially when the 180 turn of Nokia to make Windows Phones is considered, but the Finns better be addressing any issues quickly if we are to experience Microsoft's mobile OS truly becoming the third major platform.
