Nokia recently announced their first two Windows Phones, the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710. The former is a Nokia N9 look-alike that is being widely acclaimed as the first true Windows Phone. Of course, that is contestable depending on how you want to look at it.

Anyway, Nokia has provided an interactive app available for Symbian3 smartphone users to experience the all-new Nokia Lumia 800 with Windows Phone on their Symbian device. It is a great way to let current Symbian users get a glimpse of the core features that this Nokia Windows Phone brings to the table.

Take a look at the screenshots that I took off my Nokia N8 running Symbian Belle.

The app does not do a complete demo of the features of Windows Phone. The only sections (or Hubs) that are demoed are: Internet Explorer, marketPlace, and People. Still, it gives a fair experience of how Windows Phone works.

  1. Good One. I’ll download it and have a look. Though I must say that I’ve never been a fan of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Metro user interface!

    Let’s see if Nokia would turn me into a believer of WP7 with this Demo! Nice.

  2. good marketing. let people have a feel of it, get them interested and acquinted to the UI. That way, Nokia may just succeed in getting them to stick with Nokia WP7 instead of jumping the ship entirely.

  3. I have had the n9 for about 3 weeks and truly love it, it’s the perfect phone for me. I also think the windows mango is a great phone but the n9s open app screen is true love. I found I have a hard time going back to my e7 or my iPhone now and being happy with them. This meego and the screen and phone look is so much different that anything I’ve ever seen.

    This is a great website. You don’t bash, you just review for everyone. Thanks.
