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. Update: Anybody want a kidney?

Nope, the + means full RGB and the N9 and the Lumia 800 don't have that, they are of the PenTile variety just like the Galaxy Nexus and not the S2. (http://www.engadget.com/2011/10/21/the-galaxy-nexus-super-amoled-di...)

Edit: Oh, and the Lumia 800 has only a 3.7 inch screen whereas the N9 has 3.9

I'm spanish and yes lumia means whore but it's so old and unused that I don't think it will harm Nokia in the least.

Nice phone though WP7 hardware specs are low and MS is not Apple to sell 'user experience'

They should have made it fiery red and named it Puta Fuego

Sort of fitting though.

The name reflects the nature of Nokia that sold itself to microsoft for miserable pittance.

Spanish speaker here. Lumia is an unused term in most (if not all) of the Spanish speaking world. In Spain you can hear "lumi" as a slang term for whore, but it's also geographically and socially restricted, as well as bit dated these days.

It's funny but will be anecdotal. It's not like when Mitsubish had to rename their Pajero (=wanker, in Spanish) to Montero here.
