The Nokia Lumia 800 is "the first real Windows Phone". Nokia unveiled the new smart phone, previously known as the Sea Ray, in London today.

Nokia boss Stephen Elop called the Lumia "the first real Windows Phone". Which will no doubt be news to HTC and everyone else making Windows Phones.

Elop also introduced Kevin Shields. Sadly not the guy from My Bloody Valentine, but a chap who's glugged a little too hard on the Nokia Kool-Aid. He showed off the dynamic tiles of Windows Phone, as opposed to a "lame grid of icons that sit there doing nothing". Take that, Apple!

The press conference also highlighted the phone's camera, Xbox Live integration and Microsoft Office. Woo, Office! The phone also includes Nokia Drive turn-by-turn navigation, making it a smart sat-nav when you're going for a drive.

The Lumia 800 is powered by the latest version of Windows Phone, known as Mango. Windows Phone is based around big colourful squares that update with the latest information, from the weather and headlines to your friends' status updates. 

The Lumia is based on the ill-fated Nokia N9. It's shorn of buttons and includes a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, 1.4Ghz processor and 16GB of memory.
