SALO, Finland – This week, people across the globe are getting their first hands-on experience of the new Nokia Lumia 800 as it hits the stores. So far, stores and operators in France, Germany and the UK have been selling the Nokia Lumia 800 like hotcakes. We were given exclusive access to the factory in Salo for a sneak-peak of what goes on behind the scenes when launching a phone like the Nokia Lumia 800.
