The comparison shows thats the phones can't multitask. That is wrong. The WP7 Mango phones can multi-task. The applications don't close just go to the background when you press the home key. You need to long press the back key to access the apps that moved to the background.

Hi thanks for comment apparently the battery on the Nokia 800 can be accessed but its hard wired soldered.  If you take the phone to a nokia service provider they simply replace the phone, you will be charged for the service and loose any data on the phone. On the positive side although the battery needs frequent charging they last a few years before they actually die..

The battery can be replaced but requires the case to be pulled apart. To be faire it isn't a hard job to do...

I am considering both the 710 and 8oo . I am leaning more in favor of the 800.
But am not sure about the sealed battery, whats the life of this sealed battery,because when this battery loses its regenerative ability after constant charging.The actual phone because the battery is sealed in.Becomes a throw away phone.
