Is Nokia Back in the Smartphone Game?

Nokia (NYSE:NOK) seems to be getting a solid start with new Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows phones the Lumia 710 and 800. British carrier Orange says the Lumia 800 has broken all previous pre-order records for Nokia. The Nokia Lumia 800 went on sale across the UK and some European markets some stores in the UK even opened on Wednesday.

“As a result of the level of interest we’ve had in preorders, we’re really positive about the launch of the Nokia (NYSE:NOK) Lumia 800 which we believe will be really popular with our customers,” said an Orange spokesperson. “This is the largest interest we’ve had in a Nokia handset, including the huge-selling N95 and 5800 handsets, and our marketing campaign hasn’t kicked in yet.”
