The first phone between Microsoft and Nokia’s partnership has been unveiled and it’s quite beautiful.
Dubbed the “first real Windows Phone,” this device is powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 CPU and is sculpted from the same 12.1mm (0.48-inch) thick piece of durable polycarbonate plastic, with tapered edges on the top and bottom to give it that industrial look and make it feel thinner than it really is.
The Lumia 800 just looks classy.
I don’t know if I would ever switch to a Windows Phone 7-based OS, but I’m at the point where I’m done with Android. It’s just… too many hassles. Between the interference from Verizon and HTC and Google not sweating the small details, I’m tired of wanting to believe one day everything will just gel with Android. I’ve been using an HTC Incredible for about two years now and I’ve grown from loving it to just being annoying with it.
My next phone will probably be an iPhone, but I like what I hear about Microsoft’s OS, I just worry that I’m so tied into Google’s email, and other services that making the switch would be a pain.
