Nokia Lumia 800 - where to get one

The Nokia Lumia 800 launches with a bang today, amidst one of the biggest marketing campaigns we've ever seen the Finnish company finesse. It's backing the phone - and Windows - with most of (if not everything) what it's got, and perhaps rightly so. We reckon the sleek, streamlined Lumia 800 is the best Windows phone you can get – and here's where from and for how much.

 

Three
The UK's smallest network is also its most comprehensive 3G network, and it's offering the Lumia 800 on an astounding package for £30 per month with 500 minutes, 5,000 texts, 1GB internet as well as two months of Spotify Premium and a free pay-as-you-go SIM for a friend. There's no handset cost either.


It's also the only network that is offering the Lumia 800 on pay-as-you-go - for £399.99. Top-ups grant you access to all you can eat data from just £3.

 

Vodafone
Grab a black Lumia 800 right now for free on £36 per month with 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data with 1GB of BT OpenZone Wi-Fi. The first 10,000 customers will also get £60 worth of vouchers to use in six months on stuff like a protective case, coffee, Zune tunes or an Amazon purchase.


If black isn't your bag, you can also pre-order the cyan version.

 

O2
Last we heard, O2 was not stocking the Lumia 800 in the UK.

 

Orange
Orange will be stocking the black and cyan versions of the Lumia 800 but availability is still TBC.


However, pre-orders have been open since the Lumia 800 launched, and according to Orange, it's shown the most interest the network has ever had in a Nokia handset, surpassing even the cult favourite N95 and XpressMusic 5800.


New customers buying a Lumia 800 will get an Xbox 360 for their troubles, while upgrading customers who preorder are also eligible for the console.

 

T-Mobile
Pre-orders are open now, but availability date is still TBC.

 

Phones 4u is stocking the Lumia 800 on O2, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone, and bundling a headset and silicone case on tariffs costing £31 and over. It's also the only place you can get it SIM-free for now, at £399.95, with other retailers saying no till 2012.

 

Carphone Warehouse will also have the handset, available on O2, Orange, Vodafone, T-Mobile, Three and Tesco Mobile at varying prices.
