Nokia Announces Lumia 800C In China On China Telecom

Nokia today launched its first Lumia device in China. The Nokia Lumia 800C will be on sale from April on China’s largest CDMA network China Telecom. The Lumia 800C is little different in software capabilities than our normal Lumia 800.

As a result, Nokia 800C owners will have access to popular Chinese media and social networking services including Sina, SOHU, Tencent and Renren. The phone also comes with Lumia-exclusive apps. Nokia Maps provides 3D maps of China and 190 more countries, plus content from popular Chinese travel, food, and real estate sites. Nokia Drive is a voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation app. And Nokia Music offers unlimited free music for 12 months in mainland China.

To celebrate the launch, Nokia plans to offer 100,000 free downloads of the hit games Fruit Ninja and Plants vs Zombies via the new Chinese-language Windows Phone Marketplace. Nokia also announced that Lumia 610 CDMA version is heading to China Telecom in Q2 this year.
