NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The new Lumia 830 smartphone is the last model that will carry the Nokia name -- at least for the foreseeable future. It's the final Windows Phone device that was in the pipeline when Microsoft (MSFT) purchased the cell phone division from Nokia (NOK) a little more than a year ago.
With the Nokia Lumia 830, you can tell by the model number that it's a mid-range, mid-priced device. The 930 and it's cousin, the Icon, are higher-end Lumia smartphones.

The 830 is an AT&T (T) exclusive. It has a 5-inch "Clear Black" IPS touchscreen (1280 by 720 pixels for 294 pixels-per-inch) and comes with a quad-core, 1.2 GHz Qualcomm (QCOM) Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (plus microSD card expansion possibilities). The 2,200 mAh rechargeable battery is user-replaceable, which Microsoft claims you'll have as much as 14 hours of 3G talk time and up to 528 hours of standby on a full charge.
As for the hardware, hold one and the first thing you'll notice is that the phone is hand friendly. It's very, very thin - much thinner than it's Lumia 930/Icon big brother. That makes the handset easy to hold and control. Overall, it's nicely sized especially considering its big, bright, 5-inch display. We found battery life to be worth noting too. We were able to get a full day of medium-to-heavy use from a fully-charged battery pack.
