Nokia will launch Lumia on China Mobile on March 28 too

Nokia will launch Lumia Windows Phones on all three big Chinese carriers on March 28. China Mobile, China Unicom, and China Telecom will all sell Nokia’s newest smartphones. This will likely turn into one of the biggest phone launches ever to happen in China, and may help Nokia’s smartphone sales explode over the next few months.

Up until now it wasn’t very clear which carriers would sell Nokia’s Lumia line in China. China Telecom was pretty much a given, since we’ve seen two different Nokia smartphones pass Chinese certification with CDMA2000 support – and China Telecom is the only carrier over there to use that tech.

Yet there was no explicit mention of any Lumia going to China Unicom over the past few weeks. As for China Mobile, the world’s biggest carrier with 650+ million subscribers, all we knew was that Nokia had signed an agreement with it for smartphone sales – nothing more specific.

So now it’s clear. No matter which your carrier of choice is, if you’re in China you’ll be able to get a new Lumia smartphone (or two) starting on March 28.

    >> Nokia will launch Lumia on China Mobile on March 28 too

    How can you say this? There has still been no confirmation. We know nothing more than we knew a week ago :

    Yes, we will be on China Mobile eventually, but we have no reason to believe that this will be announced March 28. (As much as I would like this.)

    I’m long NOK, so this would be great news, but I just think we shouldn’t start jumping the gun.

    Anyway, I hope Nokia Lumia can appear on Chinese land either, I do expect it too long.
