It's a sell out! Nokia Lumia 800 out of stock in Ireland
On February 1st, Vodafone started selling the Nokia Lumia 800 in Ireland where it has an exclusive on the phone. After just a few days, the carrier is already out of stock which means that all of Ireland is currently sold out of the device. Of course, not knowing exactly what the inventory count was before launch, we can't say if this is was the result of strong demand, light inventory or a combination of both. This isn't the first time that the model was cleaned off the shelf. When the Nokia Lumia 800 launched in the U.K. in November, it quickly sold out.

So what is the excitement all about? How about a 3.7 inch WVGA ClearBlack display. Under the hood is a Qualcomm MSM8255 single-core 1.4GHz Scorpion processor with 512MB of RAM alongside. The Nokia Lumia 800 is equipped with 16GB of native storage and a rear-facing 8MP camera captures video at 720p (30 fps).

As far as seeing the Nokia Lumia 800 on a carrier in the States, late last year there was some speculation that Verizon and AT&T were testing out an LTE variant of the phone, but so far there has been no word from either carrier about the device joining either operator's lineup.

Yes its very nice to look at, maybe a tad weighty. Not convinced totally about the screen , there's a funny tinge of the white, like when your staring at the tv to closely.

Dont even get me started on the software bugs!

Probably because you're not the only consumer in the world. You can sleep with your WP7 if you want to, we're not going against that. So why do you have to drive a wedge into what WE want?

"As far as seeing the Nokia Lumia 800 in the States.."

It was announced during CES that the Lumia 800 would be coming as an unlocked device to Microsoft stores in the USA (people may have missed this amongst the hype for the 900). I was told the hope is for early/mid feb for this and that one version of the retail box will include Luna and Monster Purity HD headsets, and a Play 360 speaker, all colored to match the handset. Depending on pricing that could be one sweet box. Everyone around the Nokia booth had that same info if you had asked them. And there are no immediate plans to see it on a US carrier, though Telus (i think) is picking it up in Canda.

My first quick though when i saw the headline was as if Nokia is selling itself.

Nice to see it. I think Nokia/Microsoft are going to be a great combo. Excited for the 900 series to kick off to see what they do with a higher spec device. No offense to either the 800 or 710, but the 900 will really show the potential of these two.

Its not a sell out, I've just sent mine back, so there is at least 1 left ;-) Biggest pile of crap I ever bought. 8mp camera my arse ! Shots come out blurry. Audio is terrible, and it only charges up to 77% before telling you its full.

DOn't get me wrong, not saying these things don't happen or you shouldn't be frustrated at these issues, or shouldn't have returned it.
However, these are all issues nokia is aware of and are releasing software updates to fix.

I wouldn't be happy buying a Ferarri with 3 wheels, would you ? Even if they were aware if it and said we'll send you the other one in a couple of months.
