Last week we told you about the new Nokia Lumia 800 that was revealed to the world, and is the handset manufacturers first device to offer the Windows Phone operating system. Since then we have heard various carriers that will offer the device, and how much the device will cost. Now today we have the Nokia Lumia 800 UK availability date that has been confirmed.
The company has announced the device will be available on November 16th in the country, and according to T3.com will come a day after the latest version of Android launches with the Galaxy Nexus.
