Employees of Nokia and Microsoft have been caught posting anonymous comments on an Indian website's - Moneylife.in harsh review of the Nokia Lumia 800.

The review by Yogesh Sapkale was based on comparing the technical specifications of the Windows smartphone with the Samsung Galaxy S II. He concluded in his review, "Although Nokia sees its Lumia 800 to be a competitor to Apple iPhone, it is nowhere near the niche product. In fact compared with iPhone, the Lumia 800 can be termed as 'noPhone'."

This is harsh considering the reviewer has apparently not used the device first hand.

A person named Harish commented, "What an crap review!! it's one of the best phone available, iphone is so dumb compared to this.... Guess some one is paying you lumpsum, congrats.."

And another commenter named Aditya Agarwal responded to the review saying, ""dude, gone are the times when actual consumers just use to care about the technical specificiations of mobiles. today, people want devices which are beauitful, fast and easy-to-use. for most of the consumers, it does not matter if the phone has 512mb or 1gb ram. if the 512mb performs better in real-life, that't the one customers are gonna prefer. just a small advice [sic], go to a store and use windows phone 7.5 for 10 mins, the last thing you will care is whether the phone has a single or a dual core."

Sapkale revealed in a separate post that Harish's IP address belonged to Nokia and Aditya Agarwal's belonged to Microsoft.

This unexpected turn of events has resulted in the website removing the review from the website. We couldn't read the review.
