Microsoft to Sell Lumia 800 Unlocked in $899 Bundle

If you’re got a hankering for a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone and don’t want to wait for the Lumia 900 to drop on AT&T, Microsoft might have you covered very shortly. Microsoft will reportedly be selling Lumia 800 bundles in its retail stores on February 14th for a whopping $899. While that’s a big number, users get more than the phone in the deal.

The Lumia 800 is the international Nokia flagship device. The screen is slightly smaller than the 900, and it lacks a front-facing camera, but the 800 will be unlocked in the bundle. In addition to the phone, buyers will get a Nokia Play 360 wireless speaker, a Purity HD headset, and a Bluetooth earpiece. Unlocked devices regularly clock in at $600 or more, so it’s not that bad of a deal for those interested in a contract-free unlocked device.

At this time, Microsoft has not plans to sell the Lumia 800 sans bundle deal. If $899 is too steep, you’ll have to pick up a Lumia 900 from AT&T on contract, or wait for the price to come down. Anyone biting on this?
