Nokia Lumia 800 in black

Nokia’s Lumia 800 device will go on sale in the UK on November 16 in the color black.

A Nokia spokesperson confirmed to WinRumors on Tuesday that Nokia will initially offer the black Lumia 800 and that Cyan and Magneta variants will follow shortly afterwards. No reason was given for the delay but it’s likely due to manufacturing given that colored devices take longer to perfect on production lines. WinRumors spoke to various network operators on Tuesday and some are hoping to stock the popular Cyan color variant on November 28 but the majority will be offering the black version in large volumes initially.

Nokia’s Lumia 800 is expected to be priced at £399 on various Pay As You Go (PAYG) packages in the UK. Orange will offer the Lumia on a range of packages and according to one source familiar with Orange’s plans, the Lumia 800 will be offered at £36 per month with either 900 minutes and unlimited texts and 250MB of data or 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of data. The device will be offered free on this contract. Existing Orange customers will also be offered a free Xbox console if they upgrade their current contract.

Stay tuned for a full WinRumors Nokia Lumia 800 review in the coming days and various other comparison pieces and overviews of Nokia’s new flagship Windows Phone device.

    I plan on getting the cyan one for Christmas with Three, so if it’s coming out at the end of November, then I’m fine. ;)

    Can’t wait to see what they bring to the US

      Well, if they are ready to compete in the US market, they better bring a newer model with a front-facing camera, 4″ display and more storage options (8GB. 16GB, 32GB, etc) otherwise I’m not sure if they will do well in sales.

    Jeez, I already got my cash all ready for unlocked Cyan version to be imported into U.S. I can’t wait this long! If it won’t come out in November I might just run out of patience and purchase Focus S.
