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?

There's no feature parity there.
These are it's competitors. What you linked is closer to the Lumia 710, which has a similar price tag.

That article doesn't talk about hardware specs, sorry but you something better to support your point.

Maybe you should check the Lumia 800 specs before putting it into same class as iPhone or recent Android phones: 800x480 pixel resolution, single core CPU, only 512 MB RAM, no NFC, dull software, ... that's definitely just middle class in October 2011. Only feature that slightly puts the phone out of that class is the camera.

I have iPhone and lumia800 is nothing like it. It's more close to my one year old Samsung Wave S8500, which is 100$ cheaper.
