Optus is the first carrier off the rank to offer pre-orders of the Nokia Lumia 800 & Lumia 710. Orders places before the 26th of February will be delivered on March 1. The Lumia 800 is available for $0 on the $49 cap and the Lumia 710 is available for $0 on the $29 cap.
Preorder your handset here: 800, 710
We get a Tesltra leak, we get an Optus leak, everything seems to be happening today!
Optus has been doing some work on the back end of its website and WPDownUnder is reporting that the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 preorder pages are ready to go live! Don’t get too excited, no pricing yet 😦 But we do have a “will be delivered after 1st of March” message clearly viable on the site.

So the Nokia Lumia 800 is coming to all major carriers at throughout March, but Gizmodo is reporting today it might be very early if not before if you’re a Telstra customer. An anonymous source that works in a Telstra store sent Gizmodo some information regarding to the release of new 4G devices on their network. Interestingly it was noted that the Nokia Lumia 810 would be coming to the network on the 28th of this month. Is the 810 just a typo? Is the date incorrect? We will find out in 12 days I guess!
Seems like something is happening with consumer electronics stores, they hear the news that Nokia Phones are coming soon! Dick Smith is now taking preorders for the Nokia Lumia 800, black model on their website. The handset is available unlocked for $628 and will be shipped on the first of March. Will this indicate the date the device will also hit carriers? Only time will tell!
