Video: The Making of the Nokia Lumia 800 – was 800 designed before N9? Well…

Here’s an 8 minute, mini-documentary on how the Nokia Lumia 800 was made. GSM Arena called this video, “amazing”.

I can see it already irking the N9 fans, but the video talks about the collaboration between Nokia and Microsoft in designing the Lumia 800. They speak about it as if there was no N9 already there to begin with, and that the 800 isn’t just a N9 with Windows Phone. GSM Arena seems to be thinking along the same lines, saying, “It makes us wonder which came first – the N9 or Lumia 800”. We’ll look into this after the video. First, check it out.

Despite the N9 appearing first, was it released precisely as a test bed. Would people fall in love with this design? If so, the same folks cannot deny the beauty when it comes with Windows Phone – at least on the hardware side. However, if I recall correctly, possibly before MS partnership, folks were already saying that the new N9 (not the scrapped keyboard one) was totally different

This post was back in early January.

Not entirely sure if the design being praised below is what we see now in the N9. It could have been. We’ll have to ask dsmobile.

 On the N9 design: N9 is the sexiest mobile ever done? Also, quality said to be so good, it could be Sseries. Sseries?If we remember Nokia House portfolio, S was supposed to be the mega top devices, beyond Nseries.

Well subjectiveness aside, it suggests a slim, pleasing design for N9.

What if it looks like Nokia Conversations “Nokia U” design (above first pic)? If it does and it’s MeeGo let me say, “Hey Nokia, here’s the money, can I have one please?!”

“I just hope they will get Meego done sooooon and I can get this sexy thing on use.

I can say this is sexiest mobile ever done. It’s bye bye for HW qwerty and welcome candybar back in my life”

And also in reply about N9 deseign

“.. design would easily qualify as future S-series TS device. Specially in black.”
