People line up for 8 hours to get Nokia Lumia 800 in Singapore, lured by a free Xbox 360 offer
Nokia has always been strong in marketing, and it is obviously trying to drum up excitement about the Lumia series on an unprecedented scale, but the kids lining up seem to be pretty dedicated regardless of the free Xbox promo.
As you can see in the pictures, some even tattooed their hands with Nokia and Windows Phone logos, while waiting in line.
The launch party was also giving away 10 Lumia 800 phones, which is an attraction in itself, since the phones sold at the launch cost $775 apiece, as the carrier prices will be announced at a later date.
