Nokia with Windows Phone combines the best in stylish hardware with the best in stylish software. The result is a colourful touch screen phone that not only looks great, but also keeps you close to all the important things in your world. You can even change the colour of the tiles each day to sult your mood.
Comfortable to hold and endlessly touchable, the phones are made for whatever the world throws your way. Take the ClearBlack display technology: It gives you the benefit of a super-bright screen for greater visibility when you’re out and about. And that clear picture shows you all the things that matter: from your friends and family, to music and movies, to the web, the wider world and your work.
- Seamless design: Curved glass, 3.7" touchscreen, smooth one-piece body
- People Hub: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email, Chat, SMS
- Internet: Bing, Internet Explorer 9, HTML5, Wi-Fi
- Camera: Carl Zeiss optics, 8 MP camera, HD video
People are at the heart of Nokia with Windows Phone. The People Hub gives you access to everyone you know in just a click. It’s where being social starts. Out-of-the-box you’ll have no need to open separate social network apps to see what’s happening, because all the latest updates from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn can be opened straight from the Start screen.
And that’s just the beginning. You can pin your closest friends, family and groups to your start screen for easy access. Facebook Chat and SMS can integrate into one easy to follow stream to let you continue the conversation in the most convenient channel. And you can go from pocket to photo to Facebook in seconds with the super-sharp camera.
Live without barriers
Nokia with Windows Phone is packed with features designed to make your life easier and more entertaining, wherever it takes you. Nokia Drive and Nokia Maps give you comprehensive mobile navigation and the insider knowledge to make you feel like a local anywhere. If you’re working on the go, then Microsoft Office Mobile will give you the tools to meet any deadline, regardless of your location.
Super-fast browsing is just a tile away with Internet Explorer 9. And if you’re after the best in entertainment, it’s accessible in a simple click. Nokia Music and Mix Radio give you access to a huge selection of songs. Marketplace and Xbox Live give you endless apps, videos and games to choose from.
Pin any group or person to your Start screen and keep them even closer at hand. You can pin pretty much everything to the Start screen. Just hold your finger on an app or tool until a menu with “Pin to start” appears.
The group “Family” is predefined in the People Hub to get you going. Based on the names of those contacts you add, it will offer suggestions for people with matching or similar names. But with any group, you can pin it to the start screen. It will become a live tile where you can see profile photos, missed calls and status updates from anyone in that group. And if you want to keep people separate, you can also add a specific ringtone to a person or a group. Just tap their profile, hit the Pencil icon to edit and add a ringtone. Simple.
Choose the contact you want to see in the What’s New section. Whether it’s the latest Tweets or what’s happening on Facebook, it’s up to you. You can filter your People by accounts too. Just tap the bottom of the screen, open “Settings” and filter your contact list by the email or social media account you want to see updates from.
Contacts Transfer App
Preinstalled in the menu is an app that lets you quickly transfer contacts from your old phone to your new Nokia Lumia through Bluetooth. Just open and follow the onscreen instructions.
Capture the amazing
Taking pictures is as simple as holding the camera key. There’s no need to unlock the phone to put the camera to good use. Once you’ve snapped it, you can easily share to Facebook or any other network too. And rest easy knowing that a Carl Zeiss lens, 8MP, auto focus, and true 16:9 wide-angle capture, will make every picture you take super-sharp and super-detailed.
Hold the Windows key to activate voice recognition. You can make a call, check your calendar, dictate a text or even search online.
Hold the back arrow to see what applications are running at the same time.
Nokia with Windows Phone automatically links to Facebook and uses your default profile picture. You can quickly change this though by tapping Profile to choose a new one.
Got a favourite?
We all have pages we visit again and again, so marking them as a favourite makes sense. Just tap the bottom of the screen and choose ‘Add to favourites’. Give it a memorable name and you’ve just saved yourself the hassle of typing the address next time you want to visit the page. Even better, you can pin a website to the start screen if it’s something you need quick access to.
Windows Phone featuring BingMarket and Games
Quick to launch via the Search button, this will allow you to find what you’re looking for without going through the browser every time. Type in what you’re after and pick the result that works for you. It’s simple. It’s straightforward. It’s fast.
Exclusively on Nokia phones, you’ll find App Highlights preinstalled on the start screen. With a live tile updated regularly, it will give you a selection of the best and most relevant apps for you to enjoy.
Larger apps, mobile games and media will be easier and quicker to download over Wi-Fi. And you’ll be saving the data allowance you might have on your phone contract for when you need it most.
Xbox Live avatarOffice and Mail
In Xbox Live you can create a character version of yourself for use in the Xbox community. And creating your avatar couldn’t be simpler. Just open Xbox Live and click on avatar. You’ll then be able to choose the hair on your head, the features on your face, and the clothes you wear. Basically all the little things that make you, you. Get creative and get playing.
For mobile email, it’s quite easy to set up a signature, so people recognise emails from you. Just visit settings in your Mail tile, turn signatures on and type what you want it to say.
SkyDrive is a really useful way to save and share your files. Pinned to your Start screen, you’re just a click away from saving, sharing and working on documents in real time. You can also control who you share documents with and whether they can just view or edit the work.
SharePoint makes it easy to share documents with your colleagues on the go. Keep all the files you work on in one convenient and secure place. Even work with files offline, saving them when you’re connected again. And when you’re ready, all you need to do is simply send your colleagues a link to the file in a text or email.
Office 365Music and Videos
Office 365 is all about seamless mobile access to your email, calendar, contacts and shared documents. Working on the move should be about speed and simplicity. Office 365 allows you to communicate and work in the way you want to.
With millions of tracks to choose from, it’s really easy to get your hands on the latest music in the Nokia MP3 Store. Type in a search or browse through new releases, and when you’ve made your choice just tap to purchase and download to your library.
It’s likely that you’ll want to do other things while you’re listening to music. But you don’t have to open Nokia Music every time you want to change the track.Just hit the volume key and access the quick controls to pause or skip to the next track. Even when the phone is locked.
When listening to music from your own library, get quick access to shuffle or repeat controls via the up next section.
Nokia Music software updates
We’ll be providing regular updates so you get to check out the latest features once they become available. The Marketplace will let you know once updates become available so you can download, install and enjoy.

Not liking what you’re hearing? You can easily change the navigation voice if you want to or download a brand new one. Just open settings and choose something that pleases your ear.
Nokia Drive: 2D and 3D
Nokia Drive benefits from both 2D and 3D map views. So if you’re looking for extra definition to your route and some clear landmarks, you can quickly change your perspective in settings.
Nokia Drive: Day and Night
There’s no need to be blinded by your navigation system when driving at night. Nokia Drive lets you tone down the screen, while still giving you a clear view of your route.
Nokia Maps: Getting Nokia Maps
Nokia Maps is almost good to go on your phone from the start. Open the Maps tile, go to Marketplace and download. It’s free. And once it’s installed you’re all set to start using it with a 3G or Wi-Fi connection. You can even share the app with your friends from the Marketplace too.

Windows Phone OS, camera, real nice design.
3G Reception in Canada.
I'm a huge huge fan of Windows Phone. Had a few different iPhones before, as well as a couple Android ones - but won't be going back any time soon. This particular Windows phone is quite nice, however it is the international version and doesn't pick up on some of the Rogers 3G towers. In particular, I only get 3G in certain areas of Regina, Sask., and don't see it at all outside of the city. Not a big deal for me, but something to look at. Other than that, I've been quite happy with this phone. If you're looking at getting a new cell phone, do yourself a favor and check one of these out.

Excellent build quality, great signal strength where other phones struggle, and the additional Nokia only apps are a nice touch.
This phone is missing the 850mhz band which could be a deciding factor for where you use the phone, though I have yet to experience problems.
This is an excellent phone, having had no issues at all since I've started using it. The missing 850mhz band could be a problem for some, but in my area, all towers here support the 1900 and 2100Mhz bands that it hasn't been a problem.
