Nokia has announced its first two, highly anticipated Windows Phones today, the Lumia 800 and the Lumia 710 at Nokia World 2011 in London. Read about all the announcements from today’s event.

The Lumia 800 will be approximately €420 and will be available in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK in November. It is available to preorder starting today at a number of operators and retails across Europe.

Nokia announced that they plan to make a “portfolio of products” available in the US in early 2012 and some products are to be available in China within the first half of 2012.
