Nokia phones are currently enjoying a huge resurgence in what has become the ultra competitive mobile phone market. The Nokia name has been synonymous with the modern mobile industry for years and the new range of Nokia phones seem to be technologically advanced and very reasonable.

One such phone which epitomises these qualities is the Nokia Lumia 800. Initially, the most striking thing about the 800 is its striking aesthetics. The glass panel on the front stretches right into the corners of the phone, giving it a healthy 3.7 inch screen. The lack of plastic edging gives the impression that the phone is perhaps less like a boring machine and more like a porthole to the world, a window into cyberspace. The Lumia 800 shares the styling attributes of the Nokia N9.

The Lumia 800 is the first windows phone to emerge from the coupling of Nokia phones with Microsoft. It is set to compete with the HTC Titan and HTC Radar which also use Windows Mango, but the Lumia looks to have the edge. It’s powered by a 1.4 GHz MSM8255 Snapdragon/Scorpion processor, which allows the Mango operating system to stream extra smoothly. The WP7 interface is intuitive in its operation and gives the user the ability to link contacts in the most efficient way.

The Lumia 800 is one of the flagships of the new Nokia range and of all the new Nokia phones it could be set to be one of the most popular. It has the appearance and functionality of a premium smart phone whilst at the same time it has a price tag which of around Ј10 a month less than some of its premium competitors.

Nokia phones could well be the best looking phones on the market and their substance is a match for their style.
