Actually looked on Nikon website. Dell is not listed as a authorized dealer. Amazon and Walmart yes but not Dell. therefore the warranty would not be valid.

Surely not? This sounds ridiculous

So you can buy a brand new, unboxed d800 from a shop (which Nikon presumably delivered to) and it ISN'T covered by warranty?

Yes, it's possible.

Even some authorized dealers sell "grey market" (ie. in the USA, not purchased from Nikon USA) products. Generally, a reputable dealer will assume the warranty coverage, as is the case with B&H, but with some other dealers, it may be a case of "buyer beware".
You can read what B&H says about grey market items here:
