    The Nokia Lumia 800 was GSM only until now -- not that we didn't know about CDMA plans. The picture above, and the ones below, seem to feature the new CDMA Nokia Lumia 800 which will be landing in China pretty soon. It looks like the Lumia 800 will be available in China via China Telecom starting March. It will come in black, white and cyan color flavors and will feature a CDMA radio which will allow for operation on the carrier's network. The Nokia Lumia 710 is also expected in the same timeframe and the Lumia 900 -- most probably that device Nokia showed off accidentally -- will also be ...

    Black, cyan, and magenta were the colors the Nokia Lumia 800 was initially available in. More recently, the white version of the phone has been announced and chances are Nokia is not stopping here. Just before Christmas we've seen hints of more colors to arrive (though it turned out that the device in those slides was the Lumia 900). The video below, featuring the cool Nokia Luna Bluetooth Headset, also hints towards new Lumia 800 colors. Red and Green seem to be two additional colors added, at least in the video demo. Strangely, the white version which is already official is missing which ...

    While the LTE-capable Lumia 900 may have been the big news to come out of the CES for Nokia fans in the US, we also learned a bit more about plans to introduce the 800 to the country, as well. That much came courtesy of Microsoft, which revealed its intent to begin carrying the Lumia 800 in its retail stores. Details of that plan have now been leaked, claiming that sales of the 800 will start on February 14, but the phone might end up being just a little more expensive than you thought. When we first heard of Microsoft's intent, it was clear that the company would only be selling unlocked ...

    There was no shortage of rumors regarding a possible future white version of the Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone. First, a ROM was discovered for a Lumia which was referenced as white and later on retailers confirmed, sort of, the arrival of the pale-colored phone. If you look at the image above, posted on Nokia's Facebook page, you'll see that the lady holding the phones is wearing different colored fingernails to match different colored Lumia 800s. The last shot is missing the phone but the nails indicate an upcoming white Lumia 800. A future white version will be the fourth color for the ...

We still don't have a better guess at the date, but advertisements show Chinese retailers already accepting pre-orders for Windows Phone handsets, suggesting their arrival could ...
