Just in time to meet the UK’s snowfall, Nokia have just announced that their Lumia 800 handset will be hitting Blighty’s shores in a new white shade.
“The story of the Nokia Lumia is one of reduction and purity,” says Nokia’s colour and material designer Tiina Aarrasshe.
“White is the ultimate colour of reduction. It’s also perfect for emphasising the black polished screen. If you stand a white Lumia 800 on a table the body almost disappears, and the black screen seems to lift up and float.”
Apart from the fresh lick of paint, it’s business as usual for the Lumia 800. The Windows Phone 7 device still sports a 3.7-inch, WVGA 800×480 AMOLED display, an 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, all powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon processor. 512MB of RAM and 16GB of storage (plus 25GB of SkyDrive storage) round off the specs.
To mark the arrival of the new smartphone shade, Nokia are also launching a new “White selection” on their Mix Radio music service, with tracks from the likes of the White Stripes and Barry White up for grabs.
Shipping in March, you can pre-order a white Nokia Lumia 800 from Phone 4U now, with contracts starting at £20.50 a month.
