O2 expects Nokia Lumia 800 in UK on December 9

O2 expects Nokia Lumia 800 in UK on December 9

Nokia Lumia 800 will be available for purchase from O2 in UK starting December 9.

O2 has good news for Nokia fans as it listed the smartphone available for purchase starting December. Even though the official site lists it as “Coming soon: December”, the Twitter account has a more precise date for us and that is December 9.

Also, on the official site there is no information regarding the color options but sources list both black and cyan version available on O2. You should keep in mind that the cyan version costs more that the black smartphone. Word on the street is that the Nokia Lumia 800 is already available from O2 but some may disagree and say it is available as pre-order only.

If you’re really anxious, you can check it out. Maybe you’re lucky and the smartphone is actually available. If it isn’t, no need to worry because the Windows Phone handset is about to land.

Unlocked Nokia Lumia 800 arrives in UK November 16

Nokia’s communication director has confirmed today that Lumia 800 will be released in UK November 16.

We have good news for Nokia Lumia 800 fans! The unlocked version of the smartphone will be released the same day as the carrier-locked version. The downside, if we can put it like that is that it will be offered only by Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U. However, you can purchase the handset on a contract from Vodafone, Orange, T-Mobile and Three. Apparently all other retailers will offer it in 2012.

Weighting 142g, the phone will carry a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 480×800 resolution, Gorilla Glass, multi-touch input method, proximity sensor for auto turn-off, accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate and touch-sensitive controls. Also it will offer an 8MP camera with 3264×2448 resolution, auto-focus, dual-LED flash and Carl Zeiss optics, Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 2.1, microUSB 2 slot and 3.5mm jack.

On the inside, we have a 1.4GHz Scorpion processor, 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage with no possibility of external expansion. Of course, the handset will run the Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.
