The Story Behind the Nokia Lumia 800's Lovely Design

By Casey Chan on at

Nokia just posted a short 'documentary' about the design process that went into the beautiful Nokia Lumia 800. It's revealing and... wait, didn't Nokia just slap Windows Phone on the fantastic but Meego-running N9 and call it a day?

Not like I'm complaining! The Lumia 800 and the N9 are both drop dead gorgeous. It just feels so much better than the lame sauce that sullies most people's hands and pockets.

In the video, you can see the passion Stefan Pannenbecker, VP of Industrial Design at Nokia, and Nokia as a whole have for design. The details about making a "soft rounded object with curved glass edges" and matching WP7's live tiles with the colour of the case all add up to a phone that...you can buy this month, by the sounds of things.
