Nokia has just confirmed that its first Windows Phone device that’s going to be launched in China is the Lumia 800C.
The 800C will be released in early April via China Telecom, being just a CDMA version of the Lumia 800 that’s already available around the world. The handset will feature a 3.7 inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, 1.4GHz single-core processor, 8MP Carl Zeiss camera, 16GB of internal memory, Nokia Maps (with local content support), Nokia Drive, and Nokia Music (with “unlimited free music for 12 months for consumers in mainland China”).
Chinese customers will be able to find the Lumia 800C in Tianyi FlyYoung shops (a new distribution channel of China Telecom), Nokia stores, major chain electronics stores, and online shops. The official retail price of the handset is 3599 yuan (about $570, or €428).
In addition to the 800C, Nokia will also launch the Lumia 610C in China (sometime in the second quarter of the year). Based on the Lumia 610, the 610C will be an affordable handset aimed at young users.
