In France, the Nokia Lumia 800 was set to be released widely on November 16th. Things change, though, and it looks like some customers of The Phone House in France have already been ordering the device through the online store, and are set to receive the phone by this Thursday or Friday. Since it is only Tuesday and deliveries aren't to be made until at least Thursday, we can't confirm that the devices are actually making it out to customers, but this tweet sent by @ThePhoneHouse should be reassuring (even if it is translated roughly using Google). They've already shipped the first Nokia Lumia to someone who ordered the device recently:

You can get the Nokia Lumia 800 of the Black or Cyan varieties from the web-store linked below for €99 with a contract, or €499 without. You can choose one of four carriers to be the home for your device: SFR, Virgin Mobile, Bouygues and Orange. If you do want to try to get the Nokia phone right now through The Phone House, let us know in the comments. You'll be among some of the first in the world to get what could be the most highly anticipated WP7 device released this year.
