At Nokia World today Nokia announced a brand new Windows Phone 7 device called the Lumia800. The Lumia 800, Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone model, will go on sale in November. The once-dominant mobile phone maker debuted it and a lower-end sibling, the Lumia 710, at its Nokia World conference in London.
The Finnish company introduced the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710, the first two devices in its revamped smartphone portfolio that will support the Microsoft Windows Phone platform. The new Lumia 800, the flagship smartphone, is already being packaged and sent out from the company’s manufacturing facilities in Finland and will go on sale in November for a retail price of 420 euros ($584) at 31 carriers in six countries in Europe: the U.K., France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Spain.
The Lumia 710, a lower-cost Windows Phone smartphone, won’t be coming to market until later in the year. It will retail for 270 euros and will be available initially in Hong Kong, India, Russia, and Taiwan.
