Nokia showcases how the Lumia 800 came to be

Nokia’s pushing hard to get back into the fray and their N9 or Lumia 800 WP7 (Mango) version of the same could just be their saving grace. With this sexy monobody design, refined edges and yet somewhat simplistic looks, the Lumia 800 is gearing up for its big splash. In an effort to “educate” the fans about Nokia’s big comeback into the smartphone segment, the Finnish company recently posted a video showcasing the creation of the handset.

This isn’t some short CGI-styled video showing off what the handset can do in an ad-promo style, but a rather in-depth tale of how Nokia’s key designers brought out the form and design of the handset. Take a look, it’s about eight minutes long, so you might want to take some time out to sit back and feast your eyes.


The handset looks and seems well-crafted, but then again that was not the part Nokia ever got wrong. What was called Nokia’s “fabula” design language still holds strong and with the recent collaboration with Microsoft and WP7, Nokia is getting ready to once again, rock the world with their wares. For those of who're just tuning in, here's a quick look at the 1.4GHz toting, Lumia 80's specs -

  • 3.7-inch Clear Black display with a capacitive touchscreen featuring a 480 x 800 pixel resolution under Gorilla Glass
  • 3G, EDGE/GPRS, Wi-Fi,
  • GPS with A-GPS support for Bing Maps and hopefully Nokia Maps, as well
  • Bluetooth with A2DP + EDR and USB 2.0
  • 8MP AF camera with Carl Zeiss optics and a Dual LED flash, 720p HD recording (pity there'sno full HD support)
  • FM radio
  • 16GB of internal storage
  • Active noise cancellation


It’s only a matter of time before the Lumia 800 makes its way to the market and we have no doubt, the fans and Nokia loyalists are waiting with bated breath.
