A second glance: Nokia's Lumia 800
01 Mar 2012

The Lumia and WP7 combination is going to be the saviour for Nokia and Microsoft in the mobile game. The relationship between Nokia and Microsoft brings the two companies back into the smartphone game. Why do I say this? It’s quite simple in my mind: Nokia owns the emerging markets.

The two screen experience that WP7 dictates makes the device easy to understand for anyone whether you've used a touch device before or not. Two screens, two options, lots of blocks that you can customise. Nice and simple.

For the more experienced and demanding users I believe the phone is oversimplified and too controlled inside of the app experience. Oddly all the buttons on the Lumia 800 are on the right, some people might absolutely love this feature but I think it's a bug.
