Nokia Lumia 800 Telstra launches March 13th?
Nokia announced back in January that the Nokia Lumia 800 would land in Australia back in January. Nokia did mention March but failed to make mention which day in March. We are now seeing speculation is strong that the Lumia 800 will launch through Telstra on March 13, 2012. There's also a few rumors on pricing.
The outright price of the Lumia 800 is expected to be $672. Plans with no Mobile Repayment Option should start with the $59 Freedom Connect Plan and, if I understand the Telstra plans, there will be a $49 Freedom Connect Plan with a $10 MRO payment.
The Lumia 800 is expected to be offered in Black and White versions at launch. Which is an interesting combination itself.
Granted Telstra hasn't made an official statement on the Lumia 800 and there's no mention of the Windows Phone on their website. The nice thing about it all is that we'll know in just a short time if these rumors hold true.

"Nokia announced back in January that the Nokia Lumia 800 would land in Australia"
Also, Optus is shipping out Lumia 800 pre-orders on the 1st of March.
You said back in january twice lol typo?
From what I've heard the 850mhz unit wont be released until mid-march period though, so don't get your hopes too high for march1 unless you're with sloptus.
900 = optus, virgin, etc
..and thats mHz !!!!!
I really can't see anything special in it...
It's thick, the screen is small and its specs are nothing special. The HTC Titan or the Samsung Focus S are much better, but people don't seem to care much about them.
HTC Titan is freaking massive, way too big for most people, while not being particuarly high res and having an LCD screen.
