New High End Nokia Windows Phone In Pipeline for US

Despite not being released in the US just yet, all eyes are on the Nokia Lumia 800, but apparently there is a bigger, high end phone coming to the US market. A Nokia executive in France let the details slip while speaking to a French newspaper. Slashgear via MyNokiaBlog managed to grab photos of a presentation that shows the new phone. A video was available, but that’s since been pulled.

“Nokia hopes that will raise its market share to 22%. ‘More than 60% of French people do not have smartphones and this is our target’, he says. With a sleek design, the Lumia 800 is sold at Bouygues Telecom for 99 euros, compared to 129 euros for a Samsung Galaxy S2 and 199 euros for an iPhone 4S. The 800 Lumia, ‘it’s basically the equivalent of the BMW 5 Series. We will soon have a full range with a Series 7 and Series 3′, Amsellem said. ‘And in June 2012, we will have a tablet running Windows 8.'”

Interesting analogy, considering there is no bad BMW and for many, the 3-series is the ultimate driving machine.
