Nokia teases white Lumia 800, coming by end of February
After the Nokia N9 launched in gorgeous white, the Nokia Lumia 800 is the next handset getting a wintery white high-gloss paint-job. The unibody polycarbonate on the Lumia 800 looks gorgeous in white, and as we know from the almost identical N9, the process of making white plastic is more challenging, and that’s why the white version arrives only now.

The first countries to get the albino Lumia 800 are Europe’s UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Finland, Poland and Switzerland, where it will land on shelves by the end of February. The rest of the world will have to wait a bit more for the white version.

Currently, the Nokia Lumia 800 is offered in cyan, magenta and black. Nokia’s team of designers has posted a special story dedicated to the white version, explaining Espoo’s passion about the convergence of materials, colors and finishes. The pale flagship of Nokia’s Windows Phone lineup is all dyed in white and milled like metal for a true high-end feel, so you shouldn’t worry about the quality, Nokia reassures.

“The story of the Nokia Lumia is one of reduction and purity,” designer Tiina Aarras says. “White is the ultimate colour of reduction. It’s also perfect for emphasising the black polished screen. If you stand a white Lumia 800 on a table the body almost disappears, and the black screen seems to lift up and float.”

Nice well designed phone and the colours are very nice but its a pitty about the os which is crippling it. We've sold about 5 in the last 2 weeks. Nokia wanted to be back in the smartphone era but they chose the least popular and ultimately failing os,Its only a matter of time before nokia eventually ends up just being a feature phone manufacturer,which it is of course prolific and very good at.

As the Great Al Bundy once said......." Peg"! My comment comes from looking at sales figures in my store for the past 2 -3 weeks were we sell phones on a daily basis and I can inform you that although we stock lumias we dont actually get to SELL them because there is little to NO demand for them,simples!

I dont see any reason why a SGS2 owner would trade for a Lumia 800 but a Lumia 900 I can agree.

Are you retarded? I want a Lumia 800 to play around with, but I wouldn't give up my GS2 for one.

At&t should get this instead of the 900. Not everyone wants 4 inch + screens :(

Just saw that on Nokia's Facebook. I tend to avoid glossy stuff because they attract dust.

i never owned a white phone because i don't clean my phone - never, and you can see all the dirt from it so it's no-go for me.
