Even though Nokia is probably the Windows Phone manufacturer with the most freedom to customize the operating system, at least with the Lumia 800, they haven’t done much at all. The bundled apps consist of only the Nokia Drive GPS navigation program, a “We care” app, and a bluetooth contact transfer app. That’s it! Well, you also get the Nokia blue theme color, a bunch of Nokia ring tones and sound effects, some nice Nokia wallpaper images, and a “Feedback to Nokia” option in the settings. We hear that Nokia is also making a music app to include with their devices, but it hasn’t shown up on our Lumia 800.
Nokia Drive is good to have though. It’s not as full featured as some other GPS navigation programs, but it’s free, you get free offline downloadable maps from all over the world, and it’s very fast. The search/destination field doesn’t search contacts though so you’ll have to Copy/Paste addresses there. It doesn’t integrate with Bing or Bing maps either, which is a sorely missed feature.
