    Black, cyan, and magenta were the colors the Nokia Lumia 800 was initially available in. More recently, the white version of the phone has been announced and chances are Nokia is not stopping here. Just before Christmas we've seen hints of more colors to arrive (though it turned out that the device in those slides was the Lumia 900). The video below, featuring the cool Nokia Luna Bluetooth Headset, also hints towards new Lumia 800 colors. Red and Green seem to be two additional colors added, at least in the video demo. Strangely, the white version which is already official is missing which ...

    While the LTE-capable Lumia 900 may have been the big news to come out of the CES for Nokia fans in the US, we also learned a bit more about plans to introduce the 800 to the country, as well. That much came courtesy of Microsoft, which revealed its intent to begin carrying the Lumia 800 in its retail stores. Details of that plan have now been leaked, claiming that sales of the 800 will start on February 14, but the phone might end up being just a little more expensive than you thought. When we first heard of Microsoft's intent, it was clear that the company would only be selling unlocked ...

    There was no shortage of rumors regarding a possible future white version of the Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone. First, a ROM was discovered for a Lumia which was referenced as white and later on retailers confirmed, sort of, the arrival of the pale-colored phone. If you look at the image above, posted on Nokia's Facebook page, you'll see that the lady holding the phones is wearing different colored fingernails to match different colored Lumia 800s. The last shot is missing the phone but the nails indicate an upcoming white Lumia 800. A future white version will be the fourth color for the ...

    We've been keeping our eye on the progress Windows Phone has been making towards a launch in China. With language support in place, we've been waiting for news of the operating system's official Chinese debut. Nokia has helped provide our most recent estimate of when just such an event may occur, announcing its intent to bring its Windows Phone hardware to the Chinese market sometime in the first half of the year. We still don't have a better guess at the date, but advertisements show Chinese retailers already accepting pre-orders for Windows Phone handsets, suggesting their arrival could ...

    The white Nokia Lumia 800 was recently indicated by firmwares for the phone existing for Swiss and Portuguese versions. After the white Nokia N9 was launched, it is possible that we'll see a white Lumia 800, especially that now a retailer seems to confirm it. According to the retailer, a glossy white Nokia Lumia 800 should be hitting the shelves by the end of February. However, on a contrary note, Swisscom carrier reportedly gave a negative answer on the white Lumia 800.

    Until we hear official wording from Nokia (or Microsoft) we're left with what the analysts are predicting or estimating with regards to how many Lumia Windows Phones the Finnish company managed to sell. Instead of being forced to believe the perspective of a single analyst we can have a better idea; there were several estimates ranging from 800,000 units to 2 million but Bloomberg made an average of 22 analyst predictions to come up with 1,3 million units sold worldwide to operators and retailers by the end of 2011. Many have written off the Espoo-based company (or considered that Nokia ...

    The Nokia Lumia 800, as you probably know by now, is available in black, cyan and magenta, the colors the Nokia N9 was initially available in. There were some rumors about possible future colors but, due to the picture quality, it wasn't certain whether we're looking at the Lumia 800, the Lumia 900 or another phone. According to reports, Nokia's software for browsing firmware releases features two new firmwares for a certain white version of the phone (mock-up at the top). One of those can be seen in the screenshot below, dedicated to a version listed for Switzerland and the other is ...

    Stephen Elop was talking (not only) about Nokia's Windows Phones in an interview in Las Vegas with the occasion of CES, an interview from which we already heard that the CEO doesn't want fragmentation to be a problem for Windows Phone, as it if for a certain "other" ecosystem. About the Nokia Lumia line, Stephen Elop said that there will be more models coming, something the company has been saying for quite some time. "710, 800, 900, and there is going to be more" are the words Elop used saying that he kind of likes "the fact that it was just a few weeks ago that people in the United ...

    Ask any Google executive about Android fragmentation and you will hear the same answer: there is none, it has no impact or it could really be regarded as a positive thing, as Eric Schmidt referred to differentiation. Ask any of the competing executives and you'll hear nothing but the fact that Android is indeed fragmented. "We think Android is very very fragmented and becoming more fragmented by the day" is a quote you might remember back from the days of the late Steve Jobs. "We don't want fragmentation being introduced into Windows Phone because we are beginning to see how in a certain ...

    The Lumia 800 is one great-looking phone, sure, but some owners of the Windows Phone handset have been a little underwhelmed by the device's battery performance. Nokia caught-on to their complaints, and decided to do something about it by releasing a series of updates that would address the power consumption issues. The first such update went out last month, and the second was announced for January. Later, a carrier leak suggested that we might see that second update arrive today, on January 18. Sure enough, users are now reporting that this latest update is already making its way to their ...

Real-time news updates will be shown on the app's Live Tile and, "for the ...

    Yesterday's official reveal of the Lumia 900 on AT&T LTE may have stolen a bit of thunder from the Lumia 800, but there are no doubt still plenty of users left who would love the chance to get their hands on the Windows Phone device. While we've already heard about T-Mobile getting the 710, and we know where the 900 will make its debut, we've yet to see a US carrier embrace the 800. If you're tired of waiting for one to add the 800 to its stable, Microsoft may have you covered, as it's announced plans to start selling unlocked Lumia 800 handsets through its retail locations. Admittedly, ...

    Nokia is expected to launch (at least) the Lumia 900 Windows Phone on AT&T, often referred to as the "Ace", at the upcoming CES in Las Vegas. Together with the Lumia 710 on T-Mobile, it will represent Nokia's Windows Phone attack on the U.S. market. But what comes after the Lumia 900/Ace? Nokia will already have three Windows Phones out there (together with the Lumia 710 and the Lumia 800). According to a recent report -- treat this accordingly --, Tango-powered phones should follow soon.

    Nokia didn't plan on officially bringing the Lumia 800 Windows Phone to the American market. Instead, they went with the Lumia 710 which will be available from T-Mobile as of the second week of January (and hopefully some other, higher end Windows Phone, regardless of its name). However, if you've liked the looks of the Nokia N9 and you wanted to have a similar phone running Windows Phone, you must know that the Lumia 800 has been available on Amazon for quite some time now. The price wasn't the best out there but now you can grab the device for a more reasonable value: $535.87. In ...

    Nokia entering the Windows Phone game, while waved-off by some, is applauded by many and the first two devices to come from the Espoo-based company running the Redmond-made platform are enjoying great popularity and feedback from the market. However, by the time Nokia Windows Phones reach the Chinese market -- which recently became the largest mobile market on the planet -- in the second half of 2012, the Finnish phone maker will be definitely facing fierce competition. Windows Phones made by prestigious manufacturers like Samsung and HTC will give Nokia a hard time on the market. These ...

    According to different reports, Nokia is pushing out several updates for its dedicated navigation application shipping on all Windows Phones made by the Espoo-based company. We are expecting offline navigation to be included but the first minor update doesn't seem to bring it. It looks like there is an update which bumps the version numbers to 1.1.0.1584 and there is also an update which is numbered 1.5.0.0. We are still waiting for that full offline support but if you have a Nokia Windows Phone and got one update or even both, let us know in the comments if you notice anything major. ...

    More than once, we've heard rumors claiming that Nokia's Lumia 800 would be gracing AT&T's LTE network someday in the near future; the first whispers of this arrangement arrived in early November, and more recently we've heard that testing of an LTE-enabled 800 is underway at both AT&T and Verizon. So far, though, this news has relied heavily on the contributions of unnamed sources who haven't been providing much in the way of corroboration. Now, though, it looks like Nokia has done the work for us, and the latest 800 software reveals hints of the smartphone's future on both CDMA networks ...
