The Nokia Lumia 800: It’s business-ready

I’ve been using the Nokia Lumia 800 for just over a week, full time now. It has temporarily replaced the BlackBerry Curve I normally use for business work (I also use a Bold 9900 and an iPhone). I most certainly miss the physical keyboard of the BlackBerry, however I have to say that the Nokia […]
