Nokia Dials Windows Phone 7 Line

Is Nokia a Windows Phone 7 fan because its CEO Stephen Elop used to work for Microsoft or because Microsoft plopped a reported billion-plus dollars into the Finnish company (Nokia, I'm sure, said kiitos)?

Whatever the reason, Nokia is cranking up the heat on Windows Phone 7 with two brand-new devices.

Last week Nokia announced new machines that eschew the Symbian OS in favor of Windows. Unfortunately for U.S. Windows mobile OS fans the phones will only be available overseas at launch, with a possible stateside release to be determined. The Nokia Lumia 710 has built-in navigation and radio-style music services but no "front-facing camera." The higher end Lumia 800 has a camera and twice the memory.
