Microsoft to Sell Unlocked Nokia Lumia 800
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced during his keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show that Microsoft plans to sell the Nokia Lumia 800 directly to consumers at Microsoft retail stores. The Lumia 800 will be sold unlocked. Since it is a penta-band device, it can be used with most GSM carriers in the U.S. Ballmer didn't indicate exactly when the Lumia 800 will become available, nor what it will cost. The Lumia 800 is already available from a selection of retail web sites.
