We have seen rumours and evidence of a white Nokia Lumia 800, but now a Swiss retailer has simply come out and admitted that it will be stocking the handset and also provided anÂ availabilityÂ date.
When asked Swiss phone retailer MobileZone said the “glossy white” Nokia Lumia 800 will be hitting their shelves in mid-February 2012. See the email exchange below:

Thank youÂ for your inquiry.
WeÂ expected toÂ beÂ fromÂ the NokiaÂ LumiaÂ glossy whiteÂ in colorÂ about receivedÂ in mid-February.
Interestingly a similar enquiry to Swisscom, the largest carrier in Switzerland, recieved a negative response – they will only stocking the cyan and black handsets.
It seems if you were waiting for a glossy white handset the wait will not be long.
Thanks Hypi for the tip.
