  • News: Nokia Lumia 800 and 710: What You Need To Know

    Nokia officially unveiled on Wednesday what company CEO Stephen Elop called "the first real Windows Phone," the Nokia Lumia 800 and its lower-end cousin, Lumia 710. The 800's design is very similar (some might say a carbon copy) to the critically-acclaimed MeeGo-based Nokia N9. The N9 was also mourned by reviewers since it was Nokia's first and last MeeGo phone, and a device that never shipped in the U.S. Nokia said the Lumia 800 will start shipping in Europe in November for about $580. The 710 will cost about $375 and will first ship to Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan before the end of the year.
