by 99 comments

What we have here is something unheard of before. Two phones with the same body, but extremely different personalities. On the left side we have the freshly announced Nokia Lumia 800, the company’s first Windows Phone 7-running smartphone, and on the right, we have the Nokia N9 – the first, and unfortunately, probably the last MeeGo-running device for the Finnish phone manufacturer.

Now, these two are quite alike on the outside with their unique polycarbonate unibodies (which I’m extremely fond of, I admit) but the hardware on the inside couldn’t be more different. Read more »

by 35 comments

During our hands-on time with the Nokia Lumia 800 at the Nokia World event we managed to put its camera to a test, as well. We returned with a bunch of photos, which we are now about to present for your viewing pleasure.
