I had my first introduction to Nokia at CES 11. I was part of a small team of bloggers armed with Nokia N8 phones to give our perspective of CES. I absolutely loved the N8 with its Carl Zeiss lens and the quality of video taken with this phone. It also fit my hand better than my iPhone 4. Sadly, when I returned home from CES I had an issue with local AT&T stores who couldn’t seem to figure out how to provide service for me with this particular phone.
Since then, I’ve followed Nokia’s announcements, including their partnership with Microsoft to offer a Windows smartphone. Here’s a video from Conversations by Nokia Editor-in-Chief Phil Schwarzmann (whom I met at CES). I want to get my hands on a Nokia Lumia 800 because if previous quality of Nokia phones are any indication of what’s available with this latest model, I wants!
What do you think of the Nokia Lumia 800? Are you a Nokia fan? The Nokia Lumia 800 will be available in the UK on November 16, 2011. No word yet on a US release date.
