Nokia Lumia 800/710 to be sold in Taiwan in mid-Dec
Good news for those in Taiwan. Just days after announcing that the Nokia Lumia 800 (and 710) will be coming to Hong Kong , it looks like Taiwan will be getting the device too. The price is set for 18,900 (800) & 13,900元 (710) and preorders are expected to take place this Saturday.
Nokia is making a big push into markets that typical Microsoft OEMs have had not much luck getting into or dominating. Asian markets like Taiwan and Hong Kong are key to the OS's success and it looks like Nokia has it all figured out.

$18,900TW = 451E / 389BP / $610US
$13,900TW = 338E / 292BP / $458US
We off course do hope that carrier will subsidise the phone (my guess is that it will costs about $3000/4000TW (70 to 100E) with a 24 months contract.)
now the debate, to let me gf's father bring the phone for me or wait for early next year release.... yarggggg
