Nokia Lumia 800 is phone of the year

LONDON, United Kingdom – We’re delighted with the reactions to the Nokia Lumia 800, but this one caps them all.

Today, the stunning new smartphone was awarded the Editor’s Choice at the What Mobile Awards 2011 at London’s Whisky Mist.

The decision was reached after thousands of readers voted for their favourite new phones, apps and networks during October on the magazine’s website

Editor Richard Melville said: “It’s no secret that Nokia make great phones but with a new Windows Phone Mango operating system, great design and a competitive price, the Lumia 800 feels like real innovation for smartphones and, importantly, one that’s cool enough to attract everyone from gadget geeks to casual, fashion conscious phone users.” 

The award-winning phone started shipping just yesterday in the UK, but has already won universal plaudits from phone fans, press and industry professionals.

We’d like to say a big thank-you to What Mobile for their support.
