Well Nokia lived up to their promise by having Windows Phones out by the end of the year. They did so via the announcement today of the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710. These will only be released overseas by year end. Reviews around the web so far are positive.
I’m excited that the Windows Phone ecosystem continues to grow with a range of hardware. But, all I can think is that by the time they start releasing Nokia Windows Phones to the U.S. we’ll probably be looking at a “Lumia 850” with a front facing camera, NFC, LTE, etc. That non-existent device could definitely be a contender to replace my Focus when the time comes. I just think for Nokia to really wow the U.S. market again that they’d blow our socks off with every bell and whistle imaginable. (Notice i didn’t mention dual cores, I love my battery life and current speedy 1st gen Windows Phone).
Good job Nokia and Microsoft. I’m sure this is just a small taste of what is to come.
