Nokia has announced 6 new devices, 2 of which are smartphones carrying the Windows Phone 7 OS. The other 4 are lower-end devices aimed at the emerging markets, which are Nokia’s strongest these days.

Nokia officially revealed all the devices at Nokia World 2011, and they include the Lumia 800, Nokia’s WP7 flagship device, the Lumia 710, which is meant to be a more affordable option, but still runs WP7, and the 4 lower-end devices which will run the Series 40 OS.

The Windows Phone OS, which is a relatively new player in the smartphone field, includes IE9 mobile as its browser, MS Office, the Windows Phone Marketplace and SkyDrive access, among other features. With Nokia, the system also includes Nokia-specific apps such as Nokia Drive, the company’s navigation system and Nokia Music (which are pre-installed in the Lumia 800).

The new devices are available for pre-order in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and UK, and will ship in November. They should be available in Russia, Singapore, India and Hong Kong by the end of the year. The US market, as it seems, will only see these new devices in 2012. Time will tell whether Nokia’s decision to partner with Microsoft will help dig it out of the hole it’s been in, at least regarding the smartphone market.

What do you think of the new devices? Any plans to run out and get them, or will you not take the risk just yet? Do you think putting the Windows Phone 7 OS on their phones was a good move?

    Nokia Lumia 800 being Nokia's first Windows phone must have front facing camera which Nokia forgot to include in it.Moreover,the camera must be having 12 megapixels instead of 8.

    Not even by apps,Nokia looks are also differentiating from other manufacturers although similar to N9.

    Till Tango update doesn't comes,Nokia will not be able to lower the prizes of its Windows phones as its made for high end models.
