REVIEW: Nokia Lumia 800

Nokia's Windows 7 phone marks a return to form for the struggling handset giant, but it's no iPhone killer just yet.

Powered by Windows Phone 7, Nokia's slick Lumia 800 marks a return to form for the struggling handset giant. With iOS and Android putting Symbian to shame, Nokia took a leap of faith last year and abandoned the Symbian smartphone operating system in favour of Microsoft's Windows Phone 7. The resulting long transition period gave the competition an even bigger head start, but now Nokia is back in the game with the slick Lumia 800.

The $699 Lumia 800 has curves in all the right places, replicating the look and feel of the N9's smooth polycarbonate unibody design. Tipping the scales at 142 grams, the Lumia 800 is a delight to hold with curved edges and gently tapered ends. Even the screen has a slight curve and feels remarkably smooth to the touch. Fashionistas will be pleased to discover the handset comes in a choice of cyan, magenta, black and white -- looking stylish but not garish.
