You have to wait for WP 8. WP 7.5 can't handle the camera's needs and that's why there isn't a WP version yet.

pretty much carriers in the US are dictating what to do with the end-user. where's the freedom love?

Not sure if this is finally a U.S. model or just an import but the 808 is finally on the U.S. Amazon website (~$700 I was hoping for better, but its only one retailer so the price will probably come down as more retailers make them available in the U.S.) :

In the U.S. with an unlocked phone go with StraightTalk, choose their AT&T network SIM (you get AT&T's huge network) and then go with their unlimited phone, sms, data plan for $45 a month and no contract.

It's a seriously good deal and works perfectly for unlocked phones where you'll save tons of money over the 2 year life of a contract at one of the big operators.
