Nokia Lumia 800 Lands in Australia on March 1 via Optus

Optus, Telstra and Vodafone have already confirmed plans to carry the Nokia Lumia 800 in Australia. However, neither offered pricing options and release dates for the Windows Phone device.

Today, major carrier Optus announced it would offer the Lumia 800 on March 1 to all customers who pre-ordered the smartphone online.

The carrier also detailed all pricing options for Lumia 800, so customers who want to purchase the handset know what to expect and set their budgets accordingly.

Nokia Lumia 800 will be available for free on Optus $49 cap over 24 months, which will net subscribers no less than $550 worth of calls and texts, along with 1.5GB of mobile data and unlimited access to most popular social networking services, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, eBay, Foursquare and MySpace.

The smartphone will also be available on four different plan caps, $19, $29, $59 and $79. In addition, Optus will also offer the Lumia 800 on two Timeless plans, the $99 and $129.

It is also worth mentioning that Optus will offer the first two months of access for free to all customers who purchase the smartphone on any of the two Timeless plans, or $59 and $79 cap plans.

Nokia Lumia 800 will be available in four colors: cyan, magenta, white and black. Telstra and Vodafone will also offer the smartphone at some point, for a price that will be disclosed closer to launch.

In the same news, Optus also confirmed it would sell the entry-level Nokia Lumia 710 in Australia, along with Virgin Mobile, though there are no details on price tags and release dates.

Nokia Lumia 800 will be the first Windows Phone device launched by the Finnish handset maker in Australia. The Mango-based smartphone packs a 1.4 GHz single-core processor, a brilliant 3.7-inch AMOLED ClearBlack capacitive touchscreen, 16GB of internal memory and 512MB of RAM.

Microsoft Offers Nokia Lumia 800 Entertainment Bundle for $900 (685 EUR)

Shortly after pulling Nokia Lumia 900 pre-orders from its stores, Microsoft announced the upcoming availability of a special Nokia Lumia 800 Entertainment Bundle.

Attractive at first glance, this bundle won’t come cheap, as Microsoft is offering this one for no less than $899.99 (685 EUR).

Still, customers who can afford to pay such an amount will get an unlocked Lumia 800, a Purity HD Stereo by Monster, a Luna Bluetooth headset and a Play 360° wireless speaker.

Official word is that the bundle will be exclusively available from Microsoft Stores beginning February 26.

However, it appears that Microsoft has already started to sell these bundles, so those who want to buy one now should head over to the nearest Microsoft Store location and ask for one.

Nokia Lumia 800 Entertainment Bundle is only available in the United States, in black and magenta colors. Although the phone is sold unlocked, the Finnish handset maker states that Lumia 800 supports AT&T’s 3G bands in the country.

Obviously, the bundle is aimed at audiophiles who wish to go for a Windows Phone device. Lumia 800 is among the best in its class, but that’s until Lumia 900 makes its entrance on the market via AT&T.

In the same news, Nokia is expected to make another push at this year’s Mobile World Congress exhibition where the company is rumored to announce an array of new devices, including two new Windows Phone handsets, a Symbian smartphone and a few Asha series feature-phones.

According to the latest hearsay, Nokia will announce a global version of the Lumia 900, though it’s not clear if the phone will have the same specs sheet as the AT&T variant. Rumor has it that the upcoming smartphone will lack LTE support, but it will come with an improved 12-megapixel rear camera.
