Nokia Opens Pre-Orders for Lumia 800 in South Korea

Chosunilbo reports that Nokia and Microsoft have started taking pre-orders for the new Lumia 800 in South Korea. Both the companies are inclined to take the advantage of the potential smartphone market of the country.

Interestingly, the gadget will be the first Mango-based phone to arrive in the region on December 26. The KT Telecom is the only carrier to launch Windows Phone 7 in the region under its deal with Nokia.

Another report surfaced earlier this week claiming that Microsoft is also testing its device in the China. This is pretty much in line with Nokia’s and Microsoft’s intentions to release the device in more and more Asian countries before the end of this year. It is important to note here that Nokia has already launched its Lumia 800 last month.

The interesting fact about the device is it comes with 4G LTE mobile technology and customer will have to make a wise decision to choose between different available options such as Apple and other foreign companies. Another noticeable point is that Apple and other available manufacturers are not yet able to launch LTE support in their devices. So, customers have to make smart decision between the locally made LTE-supporting phone and modern western devices.

In addition to this, the Korean electronics giant Samsung is also offering 4G LTE technology support in a number of its smartphones, such as Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II HD. It is also rumored that Nokia is planning to launch its LTE-supported Lumia lineup in the US market as well, though it is not yet clear exactly when. LTE devices at the moment have an edge over the iPhone devices which is yet failed to bring next generation network support in it.
