Here are two videos shot with the Nokia Lumia 800 for our travel blog.

Creative Studio by Nokia was just released in the Windows Phone Marketplace. It lets you take photos with live special effects, edit existing photos and also an option for panorama.

I shot a video this morning to show you how it looks on the Nokia Lumia 800.
Facebook and Twitter addicts are going to like Seesmic Ping for Windows Phone. It will let you post to multiple Twitter accounts, Facebook profile, multiple Facebook pages, and more in one try.

The cyan Nokia Lumia 800 I recently unboxed was my 6th Windows Phone device. How did I know? I was unable to download any apps from the Marketplace because of this error. It looks like we are only allowed to associate our Windows Live ID with 5 phones. If you don’t manually remove your previous phones from your account settings, you won’t be able to download new apps on your 6th phone.
