Nokia Windows Phones Not Coming Stateside Until Early 2012

October 27, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

After all the talk about those charming Nokia Windows Phone devices, here is something that could be a bit disappointing.

The Finnish company’s new devices running the Windows Phone platform will not hit the stores in the United States until next year.

That means no Nokia for the upcoming holiday season. Disappointing, indeed!

CEO Stephen Elop who took the stage at the Nokia World had announced two new Windows Phone devices from Nokia –  the Lumia 800 and its simpler version the Lumia 710.

Elop had made it clear that the company would introduce portfolio of products into the US early 2012, and into mainland China during the first half of next year.

The new devices will be available on sale in some markets starting November. But there is no confirmation as to whether a version of the just announced Nokia Lumia 800 will make its way the US.

We know the company is planning to launch both LTE and CDMA phones to address specific local market requirements. So that could as well be the reason for the delay.

What do you think of a possible LTE Windows Phone from Nokia?
