For Windows Phone 7 fans, a new challenger has officially entered the arena - Nokia's Lumia 800 is available from both Telecom and Vodafone today.

2degrees will also be carrying the Lumia 800, but has yet to announce availability or pricing.

The Lumia 800 is the second of Nokia's Windows Phones to hit the New Zealand market. The first was the lower-spec Lumia 710, released last week.

Nokia's managing director, Chris Carr, said the Lumia 710 and 800 would "change the way people think about Nokia".

"It signifies a new beginning for the company bringing together the very best of Nokia’s handset design and services with the latest Windows Phone software," he said.

The Lumia 800 is a step below Nokia's premiere Windows Phone, the Lumia 900. It will cost $899 and comes with a 1.4GHz processor and 16GB storage.

The 800's AMOLED display is 3.7 inches and 480 x 800 pixels. The screen is slightly curved outward.

It also features a Carl Zeiss 8MP lens, which has been the standout feature of several of Nokia's previous smartphones.
