Yesterday, Finnish cell phone company Nokia unveiled the Lumia 800 and 710, two new smart phones that run on Microsoft’s Windows 7 software.

Over the past few years, smartphone competitors have trounced Nokia’s market share. Nokia’s hope is that the Lumia 800 and 710 will win back customers from smartphone competitors, such as Apple’s iPhone and smartphones powered by Google’s Android software. Equipped with Windows 7 Software, these are the first Windows phones for Nokia.

In November, the Lumia 800 will be introduced to select European countries, including France. Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Britain. By the end of the year, the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 will be sold in Hong Kong, India, Russia, Singapore and Taiwan.

The phones were highly anticipated; unfortunately for those of us in Wisconsin/the USA, we will not see them until the first quarter of 2012.
