The first Nokia Windows Phone has been released at the Nokia World Conference in London last night (Australia time).

The phone is a Nokia Lumia 800.

Specifications include:

  • 1.4 GHz processor
  • hardware acceleration
  • graphics processor
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 16 GB hard drive/ internal memory
  • Carl-Zeiss 8-megapixel camera

The phone will run on the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango Operating lumia 800

The phone gets a number of nifty features such as: Nokia Drive – a free turn by turn GPS navigation system, Nokia Music, MixRadio, Internet Explorer 9 Mobile and also deep integration with Microsoft Office 365 and Xbox services. There will also been a Windows app store. It’s also worth noting that users will get free access to Microsoft’s SkyDrive allowing 25GB of storage in the cloud.

For the social media enthusiasts – People Hub gives you direct access to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

The phone is available for sale in Europe, Asia and the US to start with – I expect that we’ll see the phone in Australia early 2012.

In my opinion this looks like a great phone and I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on this and testing it out.
