Before this week the Nokia Lumia 800 line-up was already pretty diverse and colourful, with a choice between black, cyan and magenta handsets. However, yesterday the brand announced a new glossy white device to add to the range.
Tiina Aarrasshe, Nokia’s colour and material designer, said:
“The story of the Nokia Lumia is one of reduction and purity […] white is the ultimate colour of reduction. It’s also perfect for emphasising the black polished screen. If you stand a white Lumia 800 on a table the body almost disappears, and the black screen seems to lift up and float.”
Apart from the fresh lick of paint, it’s business as usual for the Lumia 800. The Windows Phone 7 device still sports a 3.7-inch, WVGA 800×480 AMOLED display, an 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, all powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon processor. There’s also 512MB of RAM, 16GB of storage (plus 25GB of SkyDrive storage) and lots of social network integration.
To celebrate the launch of the new white shade, Nokia are also launching a “White selection” on their Mix Radio music service, with tracks from the likes of the White Stripes and Barry White up for grabs. You see what they did there?!
