Download the Nokia Lumia 800c Manual here. If there was a mobile phone which I got hooked onto the looks it would be the Nokia Lumia 800c. When it came out in March 2012 the design stuck in my mind and every other phone they brought out I would compare it to this. Don’t get me wrong as the Nokia 520 is also a great phone but it was the blue 800c which they advertised that took it in looks for me.
