Nokia has officially unveiled one of its first Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 800, describing it as “stylish and smart.” This handset is also known as Nokia Sea Ray and Nokia 800. We’ve already seen this device over four months ago when we first got a glimpse at the Nokia SeaRay and more details on specs part and leaked images, teaser ads have already leaked online. According to Nokia CEO, Stephen Elop, Nokia Lumia 800 is also being described by Nokia as “first real Windows Phone.”
