There’s no specific date yet when the much-awaited Nokia smart phone–Lumia 800 could make a landfall in the Philippine soil. Not even its official price tag is definite as of this time.
Rhomel Marcojos, Ecosystem and Developer (EDX) Head of Nokia Philippines presented some working models of the Lumia 800 to local media and bloggers in Cebu, Friday (Feb. 3) in a briefing held at the Harold’s Hotel.
However, Marcojos estimates Lumia 800 shall be at the price range between P25,000 and P30,000 based on the selling price of the device in Singapore at S$730.
The Lumia 800 is sporting the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS paired with a 1.4Ghz Scorpion processor making your browsing fast. It connects to any 3G cell site at blazing speed of 14.4Mbps. More specs here.
Among the features in Lumia 800 is the Nokia Map where street maps of selected places across the country can be seen. This includes the street map of Metro Manila, Baguio, Cebu, Davao, Boracay and few others
Nokia partnered with Microsoft in an attempt to fight competition in the smart phone sector. However, Rhomel Marcojos confidently says the Philippines still a Nokia territory as far as the featured phone is concerned. Nokia has just hit its 1.5 billion sales of the revolutionary Series 40 mobile phones to the 1.5 billionth buyer in Sao Paulo, Brazil on January 25, 2012.
Also, Nokia Philippines has a new General Manager–Dharmesh Goshalia who also heads the Sales force of the office in the country.
