    Long story short, through some wheeling and dealing on ebay, I've got enough to pick up the 800. It looks awesome, and I'm pretty darn curious about it.

    Is this phone worth pulling the trigger on to tied me over until the US version hits?

    I'd say...maybe. I'm hugely happy with mine and it's a clear upgrade over my old Mozart, but I did get mine free and it does still have a few issues to iron out. The camera fix can't come soon enough, and though I've been OK there are some battery woes. I have also had two black screen lock-ups where the phone is still on but the display off. Only way out was a soft reset.

    That said...all the Nokia apps are top class, and it's arguably worth it for a free, global sat nav alone. And the hardware is lovely.

    If you want a phone that feels as high-end as an iPhone but running WP7, and you can live with a few post launch issues and an AMOLED display (not everyone likes them) you won't regret it.
