Nokia Lumia 800C and Lumia 610C Officially Introduced at China Telecom

As expected, Nokia and China Telecom have just launched the Lumia 800C and Lumia 610C in China. The CDMA version of both smartphones will be available for purchase via Nokia stores and Tianyi FlyYoung shops.

In addition, customers will also be able to purchase Nokia Windows Phone devices from China's leading chain electronics stores, such as Suning, Gome, Funtalk, D.Phone, and CentreYou, as well as regional channels and online shops.

According to Nokia, the Lumia 800C will be available for purchase from April for 3599 RMB (570 USD or 430 EUR) outright, while the Lumia 610C will go on sale sometime in Q2 2012 for a price that will be disclosed closer to launch.

The Lumia 800C is Nokia’s first CDMA phone powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform and China’s second Windows Phone device, after HTC Eternity made its debut in the country last week.

“This grand launch for China's first CDMA Windows Phone represents our optimism and excitement for the future of Windows Phone and Nokia Lumia in China,” concluded Wang Xiaochu, chairman of China Telecom.

The Nokia Lumia 800C will be delivered with Windows Phone 7.5 Mango out of the box and packs a 1.4 GHz single-core Qualcomm processor, which is complemented by an Adreno 205 graphics processing unit.

China Telecom will offer both black and cyan color-schemes, but additional colors like magenta and white may be introduced later this year, though this has yet to be confirmed by the manufacturer.

It is also worth mentioning that China Telecom will heavily subsidize Nokia’s Lumia smartphones, so customers may want to check at the nearest carrier store location for more details on the pricing options.

“We're excited to introduce our first Lumia smartphone, the Nokia 800C, to this important market with our exclusive launch partner, China Telecom. Working closely together, we've created a compelling, locally relevant experience on the Nokia 800C especially tailored for people in China,” said Stephen Elop, CEO of Nokia.
