Nokia Officially Announces The Lumia 800 And The Lumia 710By cheatmaster 05:47 Mon, 12 Jul 2021 Comments
Nokia World is full of exciting news today, despite some of the horrendous leaks in the past couple of days. Nokia decided to open the WP7 show with the Nokia Lumia 800 - the company's first Windows Phone 7 phone and shortly after announced the Nokia 710, too.
Nokia Lumia 800
Let's start off with the Nokia Lumia 800. Powered by a Snapdragon chipset with a single-core Scorpion Central Processing Units (CPU) and 512Mega Bytes (MB) of RAM, the Nokia Lumia 800 runs Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. It offers 16GB of built-in storage and if that's not enough, Microsoft will also give you 25GB of free cloud storage.
The display of the Lumia 800 is a 3.7" ClearBack AMOLED, which is a bit smaller than the Nokia N9's, on which it's based on becautilize of the three capacitive Windows Phone buttons at the bottom. And just like the N9, this Windows Phone 7 smartphone will operate on a micro-SIM card.
The capturing camera of the Lumia 800 is an 8MP f/2.2 capturing camera with Carl Zeiss optics with auto-focus and dual Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash. The Lumia 800 comes in three different colors to match your preferences - Blue, Magenta and Black.
The Espoo company has worked hard to customize the Windows Phone platform, too. The live tiles provide you with more information than before and the Lumia 800 also features Nokia Drive, which is the first voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation on a Windows Phone device.

Nokia Lumia 710
Moving on with the Lumia 710, the next Windows Phone device that saw its announcement at Nokia World today.
The Lumia 710 features the same 1.4Giga Hertz (GHz) single-core processor and same ammount of Random-Access Memory (RAM) as the Lumia 800. It features the same-sized 3.7" WVideo Graphics Array (VGA) display with a ClearBlack tehcnology, but unlike the Lumia 800, it's a TFT one, not AMOLED.
The capturing camera of the Lumia 710 is a 5MP auto-focus one with a single Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash. As connectivity goes, this WP7 smartphone offers Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) 801.2 b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1. A-GPS, 3.5mm headphone jack and a micro-Universal Serial Bus (USB) connector round-off the package.
The Lumia 710 will come with interchangeable back covers, helping you match the color of your Windows Phone tiles.
Both the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 are expected to hit stores in November with the Lumia 800 being now available for pre-order. At first the Nokia Lumia 800 will roll-out in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK with 31 carriers and retailers. Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan will see its launch later in the year and more markets will follow their lead in early 2012.
Prices for the Lumia 710 will start at about €270, while the estimated price of the Lumia 800 is about €420. Interestingly, the only differences between both devices are the capturing camera and the storage space and the display technology yet Nokia charges €150 more.
Unfortunately, contrary to our and everyones belief from yesterday, Nokia didn't announce the Nokia 900 at today's Nokia World event. Bummer.
