Nokia unveils first Windows phones

The company also lauched four phones for developing markets with smartphone-like features

Nokia unveiled on Wednesday four new phones intended for developing markets as well as the company's first two smartphones running the Windows Phone operating system.

The Asha series, which runs the Symbian S40 operating system, is equipped with features often seen on smartphones but not on lower-end ones, such as Qwerty keyboards and touchscreen capabilities. The four devices will range in price from €60 (US$83) to €115.

Nokia also launched the Lumia 710 and the Lumia 800, premium devices intended to compete with Apple’s iPhone and devices running Google’s Android operating system.

The Lumia 800, which will retail for €420 without taxes or subsidies, will be available in some European countries next month, said Nokia CEO Stephen Elop. The Lumia 710 will cost €270.
