From the forum:
Nokia Lumia 800 adds white to list of available colours. Selected markets in Europe will get it first

White Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone 

The Nokia Lumia 800, or the first real Windows Phone as the Finnish company is brave enough to call it, was at launch available in the three colours red, blue and black. This was a colour range the Window Phone model inherited from the Nokia N9 Meego smartphone.

Changing the back cover of a mobile phone is not as easy as it used to be. Back in the old days, Nokia used to sell mobile phones where you could choose between dozen of different back covers. Unlike the Lumia 710, it is not going to be easy to swap the back cover of the Lumia 800 series, so Nokia must choose the colour for you. The white is a nice addition to the existing red, blue and black. The Nokia Lumia 800 back cover is made out of polycarbonate which is a type of plastic with good electrical insulator meaning it does not hinder network signals as much as traditional materials do. This result in increased battery usage. Without further processing, the polycarbonate is transparent so the colour must be mixed in during the moulding process.

 

Nokia Lumia 800 in white will be available first in UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Poland and Switzerland. Other countries will follow.

We sure liked the colour, or rather the lack of colour. But is this a deal breaker for you? Will this boost Nokia's Windows Phone sale?

Very nice but that matt finished polycarbonate body will get dirty fast. Prefer the Cyan and black

That looks really cool

hmmm.. let me guess, next color is yellow!!
Did that yellow N9 get released btw??
Anyway, I hope by time I jump onto the Lumia board, they'd offering green or red color variants.. or maybe a sky blue instead of that cyan...

You mean the white one? Did you read it somewhere or already seen it or just based on online photos?

Yes I know these covers.. Are they the exact same ones as those included in the package btw? Fitting as much tight?
But still, I prefer my phone without covers and cases.. It just loses its sexiness, genuinity, and appeal!!
Totally different to the phone being green itself..
Otherwise, why would Nokia release four different colors so far? They can make one color and do covers..

Its definitely GLOSSY and not matte here is a one review that confirms that.

That's fine I just never knew cos the other models are matt. Glad it's glossy. Actually the red one looks ace

thanks for the hint.. Now I wish that Cyan was glossy.. Although it's appealing enough as it is..
@ Bono
That magenta looks amazing in photos, but in person it's an extremely female color..
Waiting for the green version.. They have to do it!

I think a silver Lumia would look great, I'm not sure I like pure white phones, they stand out too much. I think the new HTC Sensation in silver looks awesome, they should do the same with this phone imo.
Bonovox8 years, 7 months ago
Yes the new silver Sensation looks good makes a change from the usual HTC brown colour OK so well if it looks more pink tha red then it's a no no. The Lumia is gorgeous in the flesh the screen is beautiful
