  • News: Nokia's Windows Phone bet: The first smartphones unveiled

    Nokia has revealed the smartphones that it hopes will lead to the company's resurrection as the world's leading mobile vendor. Last February, under the leadership of a new CEO who hailed from Microsoft, Nokia gave up its losing strategy of creating its own mobile operating system to compete with Apple's iOS and Google's Android and said it would instead adopt Windows Phone 7, Microsoft's late entry into the mobile market. The decision was controversial, as the Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system garnered poor reviews when it debuted in fall 2010 and has not gained more than a few percentage points of market share since.

The 800's design is very similar (some might say a carbon copy) to the critically-acclaimed MeeGo-based Nokia N9. The N9 was also mourned by reviewers since it was Nokia's first and last MeeGo phone, and a device that never shipped in the U.S. Nokia said the Lumia 800 will start shipping in Europe in November for about $580. The 710 will cost about $375 and will first ship to Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan before the end of the year.
