Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has finally put to rest months of speculation by unveiling Nokia’s first batch of Windows Phones at the Nokia World conference. The Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 have been launched.
The Lumia 800 sports a 3.7-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, and a single-core 1.4GHz processor with “hardware acceleration and a graphics processor.” Mobile photographers will find much to like about 8-megapixel camera, complete with a f/2.2 Carl Zeiss lens. The specs won’t exactly set anyone’s world on fire, but the design might: like the N9 before it, the Lumia 800 features a stunning unibody design that’s shaped out of a slab of durable polycarbonate material.
The Lumia 710 (formerly known as the Sabre) is the chunkier of the two, but that doesn’t mean it’s a slouch when it comes to hardware. It repackages the same 1.4GHz as seen in the Lumia 800, and pairs it with a 3.7-inch WVGA screen, and a 5-megapixel rear camera. It’s meant to be Nokia and Microsoft’s effort to capture a more budget-conscious audience, and it’s heartening to see Nokia give it the same performance potential as their more premium offering.
