Nokia Lumia 800 Traffic Identification.

Recently I went into a local phone shop and tried the Nokia Lumia 800, with Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, to see how this was reported by the various web usage trackers.

My first impressions of the much discussed Metro interface was not good, I did not find the tiles intuitive, and found the phone much easier to use when I found by swiping to the left there was a menu system!

The phone I used had the browser string:

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows Phone OS 7.5; Trident/5.0; IEMobile/9.0; NOKIA; Lumia 800)

The most striking thing about the identifications made is that there was no commonality in wording between any of the results, but generally these results were accurate. Hence, I will just list the results, rather than group them.
