Mobile News: Nokia to Unveil Plans for Windows Phones in January

Nokia is planning to reveal its plans for Windows phones in the U.S. in the first month of 2012 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The company wants to become one of the leaders of smartphone market in the country once again.

Nokia will carry “Operation Rolling Thunder” as its codename for U.S. rollout. The company will begin its rollout with the launch of the Lumia 710 of T-Mobile on the 9th of January. Then, it is expected to rollout a wide range of devices for the country.
The Finland-based phone maker plans to make partnership with different U.S. carriers to strengthen its comeback plans. The company announced its plan to initially enter the market with a low-end device then, will continue to carry out its plan with T-Mobile’s Lumia 710.

The phone manufacturer’s plans for high-end devices are yet to be determined and partnership with other carriers remain a secret but the possibility on the release of LTE (Long Term Evolution) version of the Lumia 800 is likely to happen. LTE devices were launched in Great Britain early in 2011 and got good reviews. Nokia has reportedly been trying out these devices with AT&T and Verizon.
However, some experts speculated that Nokia will launch its flagship device in the U.S. which has similar identity of Lumia 800 with much improve features.

Nokia’s high-end devices will join the competition of mobile phones from Apple and Samsung but massive marketing campaign may help Nokia survive or even surpass the market share of the two leading mobile device makers.
