SIM-free Nokia Lumia 800 delayed until 2012
The Nokia Lumia 800, the first Windows Phone from Nokia, is the company’s flagship phone that is shipping with Windows Phone Mango. The handset has already seen great pre-order sales, including reports of it taking the top spot at The Phone House in France. Clove Technology also stated in its blog that it has been seeing massive interest in the handset from consumers.
Customers that have already pre-ordered a SIM-free version of the Lumia 800, should expect to receive email notification of the delay very soon. The traditional, locked version with a contract is expected to arrive on schedule. A release date for the US is still not available, but is anticipated for early 2012 – possibly around the same time as the delayed SIM-free version.
