Nokia's latest flagship Windows Phone, which joins the Lumia 920 and recently announced Verizon exclusive Lumia 928, has passed through certification in China. The Lumia 925 is a highly anticipated Lumia smartphone that introduces a new design with many elements that differentiates the device from the already established Lumia 920. With the Windows Phone heading to China as well as other markets, Nokia will be pushing the high-end mobile phones hard this year.
Both certifications in China have been acquired. The first being CCC (China Compulsory Certificate) and the second is by the TENAA regulator, which is more like a Chinese version of FCC. What does this all mean for consumers in the region? There shouldn't be a delay to the rumoured launch of June. The launch price is said to be CNY 3,999 (US$ 653) and it's believed the Lumia 925 will be available on China Mobile and China Unicom. No word on the "Lumia 925T" for China Mobile just yet.
While we wait for Nokia to make the launch official and announce pricing and dates of availability, it's positive to see the company taking the Chinese market seriously.
