Looking to set yourself apart from the crowd? You can now get your hands on the stylish Nokia Lumia 800 Entertainment Bundle, available exclusively from Microsoft Stores, a bit ahead of its official Feb. 26 launch date. Just flag down a store rep and tell them to pull one for you from the back. Find a store near you.
Aimed at technophiles and design aficionados, this special-edition, all-Nokia package includes the company’s Lumia 800 smartphone, Purity HD Stereo Headset by Monster, Luna Bluetooth headset, and Play 360° wireless speaker.
The bundle—which costs $899 and requires no carrier contract—comes in your choice of black or magenta (shown below) and is guaranteed to turn heads.
UPDATE 2/20: Here’s a link to the package on the Microsoft Store website.
Thanks but not thanks! As much as I am looking forward to get my hands on a new Nokia phone, I have to say that the Lumia 800 is not a big upgrade from my current HD7. An high resolution 4.3" big screen along with a 4G connectivity and a front facing camera are my top priorities,,,, especially at that price tag.
$400 (plus tax) for the standalone phone? Maybe!
Guys I'm waiting impatiently for a Windows Phone with an HD screen. There are more and more phones with HD resolution on the market today (not to mention the iPhone which has had an HD screen for 2 years now) and this is really needed and makes web browsing better. Sorry to say but Windows Phone's OS limitations is the reason why many people buy Android devices. No 1080p video recording, no NFC, no HD screen resolutions and so on. I really think WP is an awesome OS with potential but you have to improve it quickly.
Totally off topic, but I wonder if we'll every hear the definite admission that carriers are no longer held to the "skip one update" limit? I know for a fact that AT&T is two updates behind now. Such a shame.
Given MS's love of seattle, I'd Guess it's the Sound: http://binged.it/xo5phf
Wish they would come out with some Nokia 800 CDMA unlocked ones.
Not sure if you can reply to this but, on the tile to the native Bing maps app what, or where, is that at picture of?
Will any be on display? I'd love to get some hands on time with one!
This is really not the kind of seeding deal Microsoft and Nokia should be driving. I know 900 right around the corner but there are many Customers who might prefer the size of the 800 and pricing this bundle @ $900 just priced out the Customer they should be targeting.... I am planning on buying the 900 and hope to see WP7 more widely adopted and at a more accelerated pace.
You guys do know that as sexy (and possibly good an offer for an unlocked device) as this bundle is, this is starting to seem like a very bad "did you hear the newest Microsoft phone is $900?!" conversation starter? I'm quite afraid of that happening...because superficially, most hearing of a $900 price tag will laugh and look away.
@incendy Are we even sure the Lumia 800 was meant for US retail in the first place? I think they're throwing some over, for those who want to get it. They will probably have cyan ones when they sell them individual, if they even do. The Lumia 900 is coming soon and that, if not any other devices, will be what will be intended for US market deployment. There is no Lumia 800 marketing campaign in the US.
I was really looking forward to the Cyan version... Makes no sense, they use the Cyan version for almost all their advertising.
I just want the phone. Too expensive for me.
