    At $899.00 probably not many ppl looking for it. Anyone know of any MS Store coupons floating around?

    I was actually the first one that asked about the bundle at the Microsoft Store in San Diego. At first the sales rep wasnt sure if he was allowed to sell them yet but he asked his manager, got the OK,went in the back and pulled out the bundle.

    So is it safe to assume you got the bundle? What was the actual price?

    It's $500 unlocked on amazon

    The other $400 would be for the purity headphones / speaker / bluetooth. Which, yeah is a bit retarded. I've never been a fan of this scheme but want to see whether they actually rolled the bundles out.

    I'm personally planning on buying the Lumia 900 at full price with a set of the purity headphones, so I'm sure I'll be shelling out $600+. Saving the upgrade for the Apollo generation phones

    Well I can confirm the MSFT store in Atlants has the bundle in stock. Just went and saw it. I told them straight up that I wasn't prepared to pay $899 for it. I tried my best to get them to pull out a coupon or something to lower the price. They wouldn't budge.

    I did learn they will not be putting the bundle on shelves until 2/26/12 or something like that.

    I can also confirm this device is not a Euro version. It has the 3G 850 and 1900 bands.

    Anyone willing to purchase this for me and ship it? I will pay Paypal. I called a half dozen stores and no one will ship it.

    As much as I love Microsoft and Nokia for the direction they are taking. This seems like one of the worst moves to be made. If this phone was being sold for $450, people would be snatching it up like crazy. Not to mention the hype is starting to fade. If it's in a bundle it can exist as a standalone. They need to get this phone out into the North American markets ASAP...

    Well, since the Monster Headset is $200 and the Play 360 is $150, I suppose on could sell them on Amazon or eBay and bring the phone down to $550, and that's not even counting the Luna, which I couldn't find a price for. But that bundle does suck, plus there's no cyan. :( And the European version doesn't get AT&T 3G everywhere.

    I'm on T-Mo USA and really considering this bundle, but it's so damn expensive, especially knowing I'll only get Edge speeds (except in certain pockets in the Pacific Northwest and Nevada where apparently you can pick up T-Mo 3G on the 1900 band). Anyone happen to know of any promo codes for the online store? :)

    Will they ever just sell the phone by itself? It'd be pretty damn disappointing if they didn't.

    The problem with buying from that amazon link is that it's a German version of the handset, so the 3G bands are not optimized for AT&T. You'll also have issues with warranty. I had my cursor on the buy button for that but I want to make sure I have support should something go wrong.

    Canadian provider TELUS will be selling the 800 starting early March. Available colors are black, cyan and magenta. TELUS utilizes the 850/1900 bands. No word yet on off-contract pricing. I will update as soon as I know more.

    The warranty issue was key for me too, but I didn't realize it until after. I had one incident of questionable coverage and that was enough to spook me into sending it back.
