The first Nokia handset with the Windows Phone Mango operating system, the Nokia Lumia 800, will be sold in Australia from March. Optus, Telstra and Vodafone are gearing up to sell the Lumia 800, which will be available in black, cyan, magenta and white, Nokia announced today.
“Interest locally for Nokia Lumia, our first range with Windows Phone devices, has been extremely positive,” Nokia Australia’s managing director, Chris Carr, said. “There is a significant appetite from operators and retailers looking to offer consumers a real smartphone alternative.”
He hoped the Lumia 800 would be a turning point for the company in Australia.
