The Nokia 8801 is available in Canada on the Fido network. This should mean (just a theory) that we should see it in the US sometime soon.
Fido is offering the phone for $550 CAD ($475 USD) with a two year agreement. With no agreement it goes for $1250 CAD ($1081 USD) – ouch!
Guess you can always opt for the more expensive Vertu line of Nokia phones (same designer as the 8801).
