China Telecom and Nokia just unveiled the Nokia 800C, the first CDMA Windows Phone in China and the first Windows Phone on a major carrier there. Announcing the launch, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop said:
"We're excited to introduce our first Lumia smartphone, the Nokia 800C, to this important market with our exclusive launch partner, China Telecom. Working closely together, we've created a compelling, locally relevant experience on the Nokia 800C especially tailored for people in China."
Nokia has a long tradition of providing Chinese users with all of the local functions and services they need, and the Nokia 800C has been tailored with exclusive apps and services for the Chinese market such as:
Nokia Maps: provides easy-access, three-dimensional maps of China, and over 190 countries, as well as local content from Fantong, Jiepang, Ctrip, Qunar and Soufun.
Nokia Drive: brings free, voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation to China, and also comes with offline navigation.
Nokia Music: brings a single music hub with unlimited free music for 12 months in mainland China. It also includes MixRadio, a free, global, mobile music-streaming application that delivers hundreds of channels of local and international music.

Things will get interesting from here. We expect to see Windows Phone marketshare increase sharply from here onwards, other wise alarm bells will start ringing.
