Cracking Open the Nokia Lumia 800: Pricing
U.S carriers aren't subsidizing the phone's cost, so buyers will pay full price. An unlocked, European version of the Lumia 800 is priced at $585 U.S (420 euros). The phone supports WCDMA/HSPA+ 850/1900/2100 and GSM/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900. It will work on both AT&T and T-Mobile's networks, but T-Mobile users will be restricted to EDGE.
