Nokia’s recently announced debut Windows Phone effort, the Lumia 800, will be available soon on Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone, the networks have confirmed.
The trio has updated the ‘Coming Soon’ pages on their respective websites, joining Three, which was already on board for the launch. That just leaves O2 as the remaining major operator still tight-lipped over its plans to offer the handset.
Announced officially at the Nokia World expo last week, the Nokia Lumia 800 marks a momentous occasion in the Finnish phone-maker’s history as it bids to revive its ailing smartphone business with the help of Microsoft’s revamped mobile OS.
Encased in a slick, scratch-resistant polymer shell, the kit’s standout specs include a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, an eight-megapixel snapper with Carl Zeiss optics, a 1.4GHz processor and of course, the latest Mango iteration of Windows Phone out of the box.
Elsewhere, there is 16GB of internal storage with a microSD slot for further expansion, A-GPS support, FM radio and the usual connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and microUSB port.
So far, Three is the only network to announce pricing details for the Lumia 800. Contract deals offering the handset free start from £26 a month on a two-year term. However, you’re of a mind to pick it up on Pay as you go, you’re looking at an outlay of £399.
The Lumia 800 is scheduled to land in UK on November 16th. Keep em’ peeled for more news and announcements in the weeks to come.
