The Birth of the Nokia Lumia 800 [Video]

Thanks to the praise it has already received following the unveiling of its debut Windows Phone handsets last month, Nokia is understandably incredibly proud of its Lumia 800. The device looks exactly like the company’s first and final MeeGo handset — the N9 — but inside it’s packed with Windows Phone goodness.

To showcase the birth of the Lumia 800, Nokia has released clip above, which is just shy of 8 minutes in length, and takes you through a detailed look at the Finnish company’s industrial and user experience design processes. It also talks about its close relationship with Microsoft.

The Lumia 800 is built from a single piece of polycarbonate plastic, which is milled just like a piece of metal to create a stunning unibody design — previously unseen on Nokia devices prior to the N9. The company promises that “this new approach to design is here to stay.”

Do you think Nokia did a good job of designing the Lumia 800?
