PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Today is the start of Nokia World 2011, the event where Nokia would unveil its first Windows Phone 7 device(s). And so they did. The Finnish mobile giant unveiled two Windows Phone 7 smartphones, as well as four new Series 40 phones for emerging markets. The most interesting thing? Pricing. Pretty aggressive.

While I'm mixed about N800's pricing, Nokia appears to be putting the price tag elsewhere: 710 has the exact same hardware except for the cam and LCD, with a much lesser price. iPhone is a 1GHz dual-core, which moderately matches the same performance. As for pixels, I'm not really that excited about retina display. The build quality goes a long way for me, considering how every phone I land with ends up broken somehow.

The problem I have with Lumia 800 is that besides the unibody and 8MP it has no real advantage over N710. Add to that the lack of front-facing camera, which is a potential dealbreaker.

That said, if it's priced aggressively in India (where I live) and considering how it's etched in our heads that nokia phones are super-durable, I may as well get one.
