Aaron takes an in-depth look at the Nokia Lumia 800, the manufacturer's flagship Windows Phone device that's being billed by them as the "first real Windows Phone" device.  Announced at Nokia World last month, the specifications list is decent, with a  1.4 GHz single-core CPU, 3.7-inch AMOLED display with Nokia's ClearBlack technology, 8-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, and Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) - though interestingly enough, it doesn't include a front-facing camera. 

It's not coming to the US (at least not right now), but it works on AT&T's 3G/4G (HSPA+) networks, and EDGE on T-Mobile.  Is it worth buying if you're overseas, and importing if you live in the United States?  We'll take a look.  Part 1 of 2.

Anonymous No Titan is better if you can handle the larger screen.
Kole Wheeler No the HTC Radar is the best windows phone yet.
Kris Sabo Sorry HSU7
Arvydas Gr Yes, Nokia Lumia 800 is the best WP7 phone if you can live with 3.7inch screen. If not, Focus S, Titan beats it. But I love WP7. It is much better than other OSes
Rob Mebane Sr. I'm more partial to the Samsung Focus.... Really nice phone!
