During Samsung's Series 7 Chrome notebook launch, we spotted a rare gadget (at least for us here in the Philippines) that is not part of the show but, nonetheless, caught our attention and even became almost a show stopper for us. What is it, you ask? Oh, only the Nokia Lumia 800, one of the first Windows Phone 7 to roll out of the Finns' factories. It's not yet available here and we bet we'll have to wait a few more months for its arrival (if it will come) so you'd understand why we got all giddy about it.
Just a short briefer before we send you off to the gallery below. The Lumia 800, as we've said, comes with Windows Phone 7 Mango (officially version 7.5), a 1.4GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, a 3.7-inch 800 x 480 touchscreen, full wireless connectivity, 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video and 16GB of on-board storage. In terms of looks, the Lumia 800 is almost an identical twin to the MeeGo-powered Nokia N9, save for a few minor cosmetic differences. The good thing is, one of our writers here in Techie also happens to own the latter, so we decided to pair them up for a string of photos. Now we won't keep you waiting anymore so head to the gallery below.
Special thanks to Manila Bulletin's tech editor Art Samaniego for lending us his Lumia 800.
