Skype advertising video calls using Nokia Lumia 710 and 800


The Nokia Lumia 800 does not have had a front-facing camera, but this has not stopped Skype from using that handset and the Nokia Lumia 710 promoting its video calling service.

The video, uploaded 2 days ago, show the typical hipster crowd seen most often in Microsoft’s advertising really enjoying making video phone calls using the Nokia Lumia 710 and 800.

The Nokia Lumia 710 is a low to mid-range device, and the lack of a front-facing camera is easily excusable, but the technology was already present in the predecessor of the Nokia Lumia 800, the Nokia N9, which makes its absence on the Nokia Lumia 800 that much less forgivable.

Pity we do not all have a team of special effects experts to add missing features back onto our phones…
