We've got word at Nokia World conference that the Lumia 710 (opens in new tab) and 800 (opens in new tab) is set to be released in France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain and the UK in the next few weeks with pre-ordering kicking off with immediate effect on Nokia's website. Apologies for lack of live coverage and the absence of news, the Nokia Press WiFi is as stable as an active volcano.
The pricing is as follows:
- Nokia Lumia 800 (SeaRay) - €420
- Nokia Lumia 710 (Sabre) - €270
Hong Kong, Russia, China, Singapore, India and Taiwan (to name just a few) are to see the above handsets later on this fall. The U.S. will expect to see Nokia's Windows Phone handsets early 2012, as previously reported (opens in new tab). LTE and CDMA is to be supported too.

God for them. Now when will we in Sweden (or Scandinavia for that matter) get them?
Glad to see LTE and CDMA will be supported. Maybe I'll try to get some kind of 1 year upgrade price from Verizon to replace my Trophy.
Very disappointing. Oh well, I can admit that I was wrong. :(
It would have been nice if you had made the effort to get a complete list of availability (and pricing). Germany, France, Italy and the UK are also among those that will receive the phone among the first. In my opinion it would have been better NOT to report any availability that not clearly shows actual dates or weeks when the phone(s) is(are) available in shops. And it is VERY disappointing that the trade papers (including Nokia Sweden) are reporting that the phone is not available until early 2012.
