If you’re in the wonderful world of Switzerland, you should be excited to know that the Nokia’s next smartphones – the Lumia 630 and Lumia 930 – are headed your way in the coming weeks. That follows up on Norway’s Lumia 630 finding this morning.

Popular retailer Digitec.ch has both phones listed with dates and prices, giving users a heads up on when they can get their hands on these Windows Phone 8.1 Lumias.

Digitec.ch has the Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 Windows Phones listed online in Switzerland. The former is available for CHF 399 ($420), while the latter is listed for just CHF 249 ($260). While both are not currently available, with no photos to join the listings, it would appear as though the online retailer is preparing for an imminent release. We're set to see both smartphones launch in Q2 2013.

Switzerland is the latest country that has laid host to the Lumia Windows Phone challenge, a Nokia marketing campaign which is taking a number of countries by storm. Much like the famous 'Smoked by Windows Phone' competition that Ben Rudolph started back at CES 2012, the Lumia Challenge puts a Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone against a competitor device.

Should the participant beat the Lumia they pocket a prize, but should they lose they have to publicly admit defeat. According to Nokia Switzerland, the Lumia 900 won 197 of 200 challenges. Locations included Zurich, Bern, Basel, Lucerne, Winterthur, St. Gallen, Neuchâtel, Geneva and Lausanne.

While everything may appear doom and gloom at Nokia HQ with all-time-low stock prices, upcoming Windows Phone 8 ("Apollo"), and difficult times ahead for platform penetration, the manufacturer can at least still gloat at the fact Lumia smartphones are more efficient than the competition.

Swisscom, a carrier in Switzerland, has announced on Twitter they expect to have the Lumia 900 available for customers in May. The international version of the Windows Phone is being made available for pre-order across Europe, but a release date has yet to be announced or confirmed.

The #Lumia900 is available with us from the beginning of May.

Tech website Mobile Fun previously revealed April 9th as the date for the UK, but we remain skeptical with the likes of Clove not releasing any information. Should Swisscom's (roughly translated) statement hold true, we should look to see the Lumia 900 rolled out across Europe early May.

Online Swiss retailer Digitech has the Lumia 900 listed on the website for CHF 699 ($760), but unfortunately no release / availability date is provided. The phone sports a 4.3" AMOLED display, 8MP camera, 1.4Ghz chip and a 16GB storage.

We're still waiting for the 4G LTE Lumia 900 to hit AT&T, but it's good to see more retailers list the international version.

Live in Switzerland? Want to order the Nokia Lumia 800? Then good news as Digitec.ch has it up for pre-order for CHF 599. The only bad news is it's not shipping till mid-January. However, all three colors--black, cyan, and magenta--are available for ordering at least. Other than than, not much else to say outside of get your order on!
