Nokia Lumia 800 vs. Nokia N9

The Nokia Lumia 800 looks a lot like the Nokia N9 at first glance. But is it really the same phone? CNET compares the two side by side.

One of the first things we noticed about the Nokia Lumia 800 is that it looks strikingly like the Nokia N9 , which runs Nokia's soon-to-be-extinct MeeGo OS.

Indeed, it has a similar unibody polycarbonite shell along with the same curved AMOLED display. But on probing further, we found that the differences between the two go far beyond just operating systems. Here we compare the two devices side by side.
