All of the recent Nokia and Windows Phone discussions may be centered around the Finnish company's launch of the fantastic new Lumia range of devices powered by Windows Phone 8 but if you happened to have gotten in on the Lumia action during the first wave of releases last year then there could be a nice software related surprise waiting for your Lumia 800 device when it connects to the Zune software. Those who still make daily use of their Lumia 800 have obviously made the conscious decision that the upgrade to a newer Lumia device isn't on the cards just yet but that shouldn't stop 800 owners from updating the device to Windows Phone 7.8 as it becomes available through Zune.
Although Windows Phone received a much-welcome boost from Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, it's fair to say, in terms of smartphone news, Microsoft's mobile platform doesn't really get in amongst the exciting end of the scale. In a refreshing turn up for the books, however, one particular Windows Phone enthusiast has modded his Nokia Lumia 800 to enable wireless charging.
There's a lot of talk right now about Nokia and its Windows Phone 7 handsets. Specifically, it is the newly released and much hyped Lumia 900 which is seeing most of the headlines and clicks right now.
Nokia is going big with the whole Windows Phone thing, which is probably something to do with that infamous deal it struck with Microsoft last year. As part of the Finnish firm's newfound love for all things Windows Phone, Nokia has now announced its first WP7 handset to be made available in the United States.
The phone all Windows Phone enthusiasts and die-hard Nokia fans were waiting for has finally arrived! Nokia has just announced two new Windows Phone-powered handsets: the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710. You can read about both phones’ features, pricing and availability after the jump!
