Thank's for clearing that up I was wondering what in the hell they were talking about. I was thinking if they meant a CDMA version but why would anyone call it "SIM-free"

The delay is for Clove Technology only or the whole UK?? I'm confusing...

i think the sim free version is delayed because the carrier sponsord versions are showing great pre-orders/sales and nokia can not meet the supply demands.

Ah yes, that's probably the reason for the delay!

It may still be the price, though. Granted that Telefonica refused to subsidize Lumia 800, Nokia surely is aware that the price is not very competitive.
So, here comes Apple's strategy - make the phone look cheaper (and competitive) by not letting it go free. After all, Titan is mere £30 more that Lumia 800 SIM free.

Well, I'm not sure but I saw one on Three website, £399.00 (VAT Inc.) available for pre-order. And it said the earliest delivery will be on Fri 18 Nov, 2011. :)

Oh sorry, the phone I mentioned is not a sim-free. It comes with 3's pay as you go sim. But it's still a good price for me compare to the other retailers'.
