Lumia 800 arrives in Australia in March (but we'll have it next week)

Nokia's first big launch of the Lumia 800 in Australia will be in March 2012. For those that own a Nokia N9, the Lumia 800 is the Windows Phone 7 version of the Nokia N9. The Lumia 800 incorporates the best OS that Windows can offer with what you all know to be the best hardware build for a mobile phone in the Nokia N9. 

We'll be trialling the Lumia 800 and comparing it with the N9 as well as the Samsung Galaxy S2 so stay tuned!

N9 not Getting out of Standby

After a while of inactivity, we all know that the phone goes blank and shows the standby screen. I chose to have the standby screen off. However, occasionally when I press the power button to re-activate the phone, it does not respond, leaving the display completely black. I presume if you had the standby screen, the clock and the black background would remain. The only solution to this I've found was to plug in the charger or usb cable as this somehow wakes up the phone. However, obviously the usb cable is not always on hand in which case, I hold the power button down for a long time to turn the phone off and then turn it back on. 

Has this happened to you?
