  • Does that mean it will support 850 at&t unlocked?
  • Don't all phones sold in Europe support At&T 850?
    There's just one standard 3G in Europe as far as i know. It's more about the U.S CDMA back in the days messing things up and maybe some future problems with LTE.
  • GSM 850; not 3g
  • Please Mr. Nokia, bring this device to the States....
  • Bell Canada gave up on Windows Phones, you just can't find a windows phone 2nd gen in canadian carriers and except for the Samsung Focus (1st gen) windows phone is unexistant...  Canada is a big market too and people here don't even know about WP7, but everyone knows about Android and Apple, why? Because they are promoting their products... Microsoft is not gaining ground... they are doing what they've done for years... sit back and watch what's going on. What do they think? that we're going to promote their phones so they don't have to spend money on that?
  • totally agree with you.
    Canadian carriers don't even know that wp7 devices exist. only rogers has the slightest hint of supporting it by not phasing out the samsung focus like telus is doing to optimus 7.
    Bell has already dumped wp7.
    It's very sad because i'm telling all my friends to switch to wp7, but there're no compelling devices (in terms of hardware design) right now. if the radar or titan were here, i can easily point them to those devices
    it makes me wonder: who's to blame for Canada not having wp7? carriers for not wanting it? or MS for not pushing canadian carriers to support it?
  • I bet Nokia will come around the same time they hit the United States.
  • I feel your pain. I have a HTC Surround from Telus. Wanted to get a different phone for my wife. But, all they offered from Telus was the HTC Surround still, plus the Optimus 7. So, she got the HTC Surround. Nice phone but I think we are done her ein Canada.
  • I really wish they would stop advertising this as quadband 3G because it's not true. Below is from an email from Nokia:
    We understand that you would like to know if there are other versions of the Nokia Lumia 800. Please be advised that the Nokia Lumia 800 has two variants: • European Variant - WCDMA HSPA 900/1900/2100 MHz (RM-801)
    • US Variant - WCDMA HSPA 850/1900/2100 MHz (RM-819)
    Mind you, I had to ask no less than FIVE times to get a straight answer...
