Nokia took a big hit in the face of onslaught by iOS and Android devices, and Microsoft’s Windows Mobile platform wasn’t doing much good either. So a while back, the two got together and announced a collaboration for new Nokia phones that would be based on the Windows platform. Their work now seems to have borne fruit in the shape of these brand new Nokia mobile phones running on Windows.
Nokia has outed two new smartphones, the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710, each with encouraging looks, style and apparently with enough energy to stand up and face their tough competitors. The Lumia 710 is cheaper of the two, and seems to be gunning for the relatively cheaper Android market share. It packs 512 MB RAM, 5MP camera, WVGA TFT screen and 8GB of storage, and is priced at ~$375.
The Lumia 800 is the higher end device, apparently aimed at the iPhone and high-end Android devices. It has a 1.4 Ghz processor with hardware graphics acceleration, 3.7-inch curved 800×480 AMOLED display, 16 gigs of storage, 8 MP camera, 512 MB RAM, and a price tag of ~$584.
Prices for both devices are currently for the EU though, where the phones will be available on November 16. North America will have to wait until early 2012 to get hold of these phones.
