Nokia’s smartphones may not be topping the charts as far as sales are concerned, but they’re still winning accolades for the Finish phone maker. Case and point, both the Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 have struck gold in this year’s International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA).
These two Lumias won the gold award in design innovation, proof that Nokia’s still got the chops to duke it out with the big boys as far as design goes.
And I couldn’t agree more with the jury’s choice to award these two Windows Phone bad boys. The Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 are definitely a cut above the rest in the design department. Not so much, though, in terms of specs.

Nokia wins design gold award
Nokia was recently recognized at the prestigious awards event, International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA).
The Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 900 both received the gold award in design innovation in the 2012 IDEA Awards. The Jury chose to reward these two products of the Lumia series for its distinctive contribution to smartphone design.
According to the Jury, “in a market in which it is difficult to stand out, the Nokia Lumia brings a fresh perspective.” The Nokia Lumia series carries an iconic form that is personal and inviting without sacrificing precision. Its construction is also very modern, efficient and well-crafted down to the smallest details.
“It’s a bold, gold-worthy effort, and I’m glad to see Nokia reclaim its design swagger,” said Jonah Becker, Principal and Creative Director, One & Co.
IDEA is hosted annually by the Henry Ford Museum, official home of American ideas and innovation. Over twenty international design experts head to Dearborn, Michigan, for a two-day huddle that decides the winners.
Entries for the IDEA included diverse ideas and objects from bathroom furniture to bicycles, smartphones to sports gear, commercial products and student projects.
