Those rumors pointing to far ahead 2012 date for the unlocked Nokia Lumia 800 were obviously wrong. Seems like it was just a carrier trying to get more sales by spreading rumors about the apparent unavailability of a contract-free Nokia Lumia 800. Now Nokia has made official that the release date of the Nokia Lumia 800 is November 16th: both with carrier contracts and subsidies, and the unlocked, sim-free version of the Lumia 800 ready to work with whatever MicroSIM you put in there.
Seems like the Nokia Lumia 800 is a hot gadget and carriers know it, but spreading wrong rumors to attempt more sales is just not classy. Thankfully Nokia cleared it all up; who’s getting a sim-free Lumia 800 in the UK this November 16th?
