Nokia to sell Windows Phone Cheaper to Reach Volume

Nokia wants marketshare for their new Windows Phones and will do that by undercutting competitors.

Nokia's future hangs on the Microsoft Windows Phone OS. Nokia is used to sell tons of phones and they need that kind of success with the new Lumia Windows Phones. Reuters reports that Stephen Elop says to price their Windows Phones to reach what the company thinks is a good volume.

This means you will be seeing good deals on the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 this Fall where it is available. It is a pity that Nokia is not entering the US market this year to spice things up among Windows Phones here. The Nokia Lumia 800 is now on sale in Germany, France and UK.

Elop said also at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecoms Conference in Barcelona that Nokia will come with a new Windows Phone portfolio to the US in early 2012.

Right now Windows Phones do not make much waves. Microsoft will have to spend some money for marketing this fall to help its partners sell a couple phones.

The new Samsung Focus Flash 4G Windows Phone from AT&T is on sale on Amazon Wireless for a Penny with contract. Anyone?

In related news, Nokia confirmed a Windows 8 Tablet.
