Nokia Lumia 800
Price: Rs 28,000 (approx)

The latest handset from Nokia is the colourful Lumia 800, and it promises to grab your attention almost immediately. Loaded with Windows Phone and made from the single piece of injection-moulded polycarbonate to the 8MP camera which sports a f/2.2 Carl Zeiss lens, while taking elements from the N9, Nokia clearly has a winner.

Here, Nokia attempts to keep to its traditions and what the company is best known for - hardware, design and production.

The matte finish saves you the hassle of wiping off fingerprints from your phone, so that you won't be forever polishing it. Also, it is light, but reassuringly heavy.

The Nokia Lumia 800 is expect to be available across key cities and towns in India by mid-December.

It's not just the design that separates Samsung X830 from others. It weighs 72g, which is less than any mobile that supports MP3, ACC, ACC+, e-AAC+, WMA file formats.

The drawn out shape and variety of colours offered by Samsung, makes this phone a stylistic success.

The chin at the bottom that is characteristic of the European version of the Hero has been retained as well, but the handset comes with rounded shapes and is almost 3 mm than HTC Hero.
