We all knew it was coming sooner rather than later, but now Nokia has officially announced that the white Lumia 800 will go on sale sometime later this month. It isn’t clear what regions the phone will come to first, though I would probably put my money on Europe and North America first.
The white Lumia 800 doesn’t change up the hardware at all, still touting the same Lumia 800 specs. This includes a 1.4GHz processor, 3.8” 800×480 AMOLED ClearBlack curved display, an 8MP Carl Zeiss rear camera, 16GB of internal storage, Windows Phone Mango, FM Radio, and a 1450 mAh battery.
There is really something about the clean look that white brings to the 800, and personally, I kind of prefer it to the original black phone. What do you think? Do you have a color preference when it comes to smartphones?
Espoo, Finland – Nokia announced today that the Nokia Lumia 800 will be available in white, beginning later this month.

“Since we began selling it late last year, the Nokia Lumia 800 has received rave reviews around the world,” said Ilari Nurmi, Vice President of Product Marketing, Nokia. “Now in white, the Lumia 800 brings with it an even more premium look and feel with its gloss finish, but packed with power and performance underneath its sleek body.”
