Summary

One of the problems smartphone manufacturers face when they design and build a Windows Phone powered device is that if you've seen one Windows Phone, you've basically seen them all. After all, how much can you do when the phones all feature the same basic specifications and are dominated by a similar touchscreen.

The answer usually is "not much."

Nokia, though, has proven to the industry that it can do Windows Phone better than the competition. Its Lumia 800 features one of the best hardware designs found on a smartphone today - on any platform - and it comes with additional Nokia-developed software that makes the company look like it has been writing Windows Phone apps for years.

In short, it's a simply fantastic smartphone that takes Windows Phone to the next level.
