Mobile phone carrier Three UK is another wireless services provider in the UK who has added the Nokia Lumia 800 to a coming soon page on its website.Vodafone UK made a similar move not too long ago, and Three UK also put the handset up online, offering users the possibility to place pre-orders for it.
The handset is expected to become available in the UK starting with mid-November and Three might have it on its offering at that time, although the wireless carrier did not offer specific info on the matter.
Nokia Lumia 800, the first handset from the Finnish mobile phone maker to run under Windows Phone, is expected to become available only on contract this month, while being set to hit shelves in the UK SIM-free starting with the next year.
At Three UK, the new mobile phone can be seen listed online here, available for free on the wireless carrier's £37 per month plan.
The handset was built on the same design as Nokia N9, but with a series of modifications fit for the Windows Phone operating system.
“The Nokia Lumia 800 is a Windows Phone unlike any other. It's good-looking with a slick, scratch-resistant casing and the curved 3.7" AMOLED display makes colours really rich and vivid - perfect for internet and apps,” Three UK notes.
“The mega-fast 1.4GHz processor makes gaming, browsing and streaming a smooth experience and there's a whopping 16GB internal memory, giving you loads of space for all your music, pictures and videos.
“On top of this, the Lumia 800 has a fantastic 8 megapixel Carl Zeiss camera with a wide-angle lens and flash which is ideal for taking photos and uploading them instantly to your free 25GB SkyDrive.”
The handset also offers great social networking capabilities courtesy of the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango OS loaded on it, as well as fast browsing and support for a variety of applications and games.
“You also get Nokia Drive for unbeatable turn-by-turn navigation, Nokia Music with Mix Radio - which let's you stream music radio stations for free - and access to all the Windows Phone apps in Marketplace,” the wireless carrier continues.
