Nokia Lumia 800 gets release date

The flagship Nokia can be yours from November 16 – a day before the Galaxy Nexus

The Windows Phone Mango sporting Nokia Lumia 800 will land in the UK on November 16. So what Nokia's calling the first real Windows Phone handset will be available a day before the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich Galaxy Nexus. Sneaky.

You can expect a powerful 1.2GHz dual-core, an eyewatering 1280x720px 4.65in Super AMOLED screen, and an 8MP snapper – making the Lumia 800 a bit better than the 5MP Galaxy Nexus, on paper.

If you want one, Three is offering the Lumia 800 on a pay-as-you-go option for £400, so you can expect affordable tariffs that get you the handset for free. Now you just need to decide on which of the three colours you want.
