Nokia Lumia 800: Nokia-Microsoft first Windows based Phone [Review]

Nokia has officially launched its first Windows based phone, Nokia Lumia 800. The Phone was launched at a presentation that took place in London, before more than 3,000 attendees. The Phone will arrive later this year in order to cope up against the powerful Android and Apple iPhone.

Last February, Nokia and Microsoft corroborated to sign an agreement to launch a Nokia Phone that will run on Windows Phone Operating System. The agreement was one of the drastic measures by the Nokia CEO, Stephen Elop, who promised his employees to solve the plight of the company. The success of Apple and Android devices has caused Nokia to lose the lead in the mobile industry and Nokia remains far behind in the Smartphone market.

During the presentation, Elop also highlighted the difficult time of the company and pointed to its new strategy, and its agreement with Microsoft that will mark the beginning of recovery. Elop has defined Nokia Lumia 800 as “the first real Windows Phone.”
