Ordered my Nokia Lumia 800

And just like that, I just ordered my Nokia Lumia 800 on 12th December at exactly 9:00pm!! Today Amazon.de made a Cyber Monday sale where it slashed prices for more than 300 items, and the Nokia Lumia’s price slashing began at 9:00:00pm and ended at 9:00:20pm.. it only took 20 seconds for all the stock to finish!!! And I was one of the lucky to get one at a reduced price!!! Hussaahhh.

Now waiting for the delivery to take place!! 🙂 Hopefully it doesn’t take long!! 🙂 Btw it’s the Black one.. the blue one is still not available.. but the black will do just as good 🙂
