TechPinas Exclusive!

Given that Nokia has already chosen Microsoft's Windows Phone as the operating system of its future smartphones, the company's first WP7 device - the Nokia Lumia 800 - practically gives us a glimpse into the very future of the Finnish company.

Nokia Lumia 800, in the flesh!

And if this live demo given to TechPinas by no less than Ms. Nikka Abes of Nokia Philippines during last week's Media Thanksgiving Event shows us what Nokia's future supersmartphones will be like - if a bit, I tell you, Nokia's future will be bright:

I mean, the gorgeous UI, the responsiveness of the screen, the smooth transitions, the growing number of Marketplace apps, the fast browser, and built-in social applications of the WP platform combined with Nokia's expertise in handset design and multimedia features as well as its own set well-loved applications including Maps and Drive, I won't be surprised at all if Nokia's WP smartphones end up being some of the best-selling gadgets of 2012 and in the years to come.

But you don't have to wait too long to get hold of Nokia Lumia 800. I believe the phone will hit store shelves in the Philippines by Q2 this year or even as early as March, hopefully.
