Another device of interest today is the Nokia Lumia 800. A brief visit to some popular online stores (Lelong) gave me the price impression of the device – revealing a price range of the cheapest at RM584 or US$189 and to the top at RM1460 (US$472). The Lumia 800 was introduced in the market by Nokia in October 2011 with a staggering introductory price of RM1650 (US$534). Originally it was a high-end Windows Phone but has now become one of the most wanted budget phone available in the market.

Specifications wise the Nokia Lumia 800 sports a Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon 1.4 GHz Scorpion processor and an accompanying Adreno 205 GPU. It runs under Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango which is also upgradable to v7.8. It has 512MB of RAM, 16GB of an internal memory, sadly there is no memory card slot for this device. The screen is a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen offering 16M colors at a 480 x 800 pixels resolutions. The screen also has Corning Gorilla Glass protection and features a Nokia ClearBlack display as well. Apart from that,  it is also offered with an 8MP main camera at the rear featuring 3264 x 2448 pixels with Carl Zeiss optics together with auto-focus and dual-LED flash. It is capable of shooting video at [email protected] Sadly again, there is no secondary camera. Below are the key features and down sides of the phone for your convenience, courtesy of GSMarena.
