    Still far too expensive. Looks like Nokia is playing the (dumb and futile) game of matching their product prices to Apple prices. Nokia will lose. Every time. Just ask HP about this.

    It's like free market capitalism is running in reverse in the U.S. right now. It's like follow the leader and see who can get the highest price.

    If he can get $599, I should be able to get $625. If he can get $625, I should be able to get $650. If he can get $650, I should be able to get $675... and so on...

    If this is true, Nokia/MS have lost their minds and a customer......I guess I will be staying with my Pre 2/3 for another 6 months or so, until Nokia decides to give us an under 4.0" screen in the US that doesn't cost us a ridiculous amount of $.....

    Very disappointed here....For those of us that want a WP in the US, but do not want to hold a "tablet" to our ears (900, TITAN, etc) we are left with the 710....Oh well...I tried....back to WEBOS....

    Retarded.

    Especially as it only runs AT&T 3G bands. You could make an argument that buying this then going on T-Mobile's discounted "bring your own phone" plans would save you lots money (which is true) but you'd be missing out on 3G, which for this day and age is a non-starter.

    AT&T doesn't give a monthly discount for bringing your own phone, so you are much better off just getting a subsidized phone on contract.

    This should be $400 unlocked with no bundle and you'd move units.

    Your right. I'd start it at $589. If the demand wasn't there after two weeks I'd drop it to $489. Then a month later if it wasn't moving, to your price, like $399

    That's bad for perception. I can see the engadget articles now: "Lumia 800 a dud, second price drop in xx weeks"

    At this point MS/Nokia should be alright with taking small margins for the trade-off of moving units and building buzz.

    At $899 I guarantee that the 800 in the US will be a dud anyway......

    You're right, that probably would happen. Smaller margins to sell units and get people interested seems the smarter route.

    Even if this was a pentaband 3G American unlocked Lumia capable of working on T-Mobile's 3G, and Nokia added a front facing camera, a much better rear camera, and Microsoft through in a year pass to Zune... It's still would be about $400 too much.
