Unlocked Nokia Lumia 800 May Not Be Out Until January 2012

Nokia Lumia 800

Clove’s got some bad news for the guys in the UK who have been waiting to get their unlocked Lumia 800.

According to the blog post, the first Windows Phone from Nokia will not be available until January 2012. The unlocked version, course. An excerpt –

It’s bad news on the Nokia front this afternoon unfortunately. We can now confirm that the Nokia Lumia 800 will not be available SIM-free in the UK until January 2012, although it will still be launched in the UK on November 16th with a contract and will be available from selected stores.

What’s worth noting here is – the amount of interest Nokia has been able to generate. Coming from Clove, I’m certain it’s huge – they’re one of the top online retailers in the UK. We’ll take their word on this.

It’ll be launched as scheduled with a contract, as they say. Also, Nokia will be launching the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 in India, on November 14th. We’ll try and cover, so stay hooked!
