Unlocked Nokia Lumia 800 officially available in the US in February
The Nokia Lumia 900 may be the flagship device in the Finnish company’s portfolio, but that doesn’t mean it has forgotten all about the Lumia 800 or the Lumia 710, the first two smartphones in Nokia’s new Windows Phone-based lineup.
The Lumia 710 will be available at T-Mobile tomorrow. As for the Lumia 800, it hasn’t been picked up by any carriers so far, but Nokia plans to bring an unlocked version to the US as soon as next month. This will be found in all the usual places (some of which offer imports even as you read this), and also, interestingly, in Microsoft’s stores throughout the country.
There’s no word on pricing unfortunately, but do expect it to be lower than what the Lumia 800 imports are currently going for in the US. Because the Lumia 800 is a pentaband 3G device, you’ll be able to use it (complete with HSPA support) on either AT&T or T-Mobile.
You’ll be able to buy the phone on its own, or as part of a bundle which will also include the Nokia Play 360 speakers and the Nokia Purity headset made by Monster. The unlocked Nokia Lumia 800 will be available in the US in cyan, black, and pink/magenta, so all the colors in which it’s been sold internationally so far.
