Latest Nokia And HTC Flagships Coming To China In DecemberNovember 5, 2012
Rumors has that the latest Windows Phones by Nokia and HTC will be coming to China in December. HTC and Nokia both will bring their so far announced portfolio of the WP8 handsets that include 8X and 8S for HTC and Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 for Nokia.
We already know that Nokia has signed a deal with China Mobile to launch the Windows Phone handsets in the Chinese market. Reportedly, Nokia will be organizing a big party for their Lumia launch along with China Mobile while HTC will be hosting their own launch event on very next day in order to keep the battle alive. Nokia needs a solid boost now and Chinese market very well could provide that. HTC neither has perfmormed very well, it can be seen from their last quarter results but it’s still in better position than Nokia. At the moment Samsung seems less interested in the Windows Phone battle since they are making hefty profits from their Android lineup so it’s mainly between HTC and Nokia. Interestingly HTC will be pricing 8X lesser than Lumia 920 while it’ll be marginally higher than Lumia 820 trying to lure away possible Nokia conusmers. It’ll be one furious battle for sure and do or die for Nokia.
