Last night at the January 2012 edition of Mobile Monday Nigeria, I got a quick time to play with the Nokia Lumia 800.
Here are a few pictures that I took.
I have used two Windows Phone devices before now, and so I am already familiar with the OS and UI. It runs fluid on the Lumia 800. Very fluid.
In addition, Nokia’s homegrown services, Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive and Nokia Music are present.
Hardware-wise, the Lumia is almost a replica of the N9’s superb body. It is sleek in the hand and to the eyes. However, the display being 3.7 inches felt really cramped to me.
Personally, Windows Phone looks the most superb on displays of 4 inches and above. It works the same but larger displays certainly make it look better.
We still do not have an official word on the launch date for Nokia’s Windows Phone devices here in Nigeria, so enthusiasts will have to wait a while.
