Nokia Lumia 800c, made for CDMA pipeline, pictured in China
A picture of the Nokia Lumia 800c was published in China after the Windows Phone flavored model passed the country's certification agency, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology Certification Center. You might be wondering about the little "c" at the end of the device's name and we can tell you that it means that the model is a CDMA enabled version of the Nokia Lumia 800. Actually, the phone is a cdma2000/GSM unit. The swirl on the back of the handset tells us that the model is going to be launched via China Telecom.

Nokia Lumia 800c
All three major Chinese carriers are expecting to add Lumia models to their lineups with a launch party scheduled for March 28th. For a long time, Nokia was the top manufacturer of smartphones in china, although the Finnish based firm has recently been topped by Korea's Samsung. With new Nokia Lumia models supporting WCDMA, CDMA and TD-SCDMA networks in the country, there is a chance that Nokia could regain its spot at the top of the Chinese charts. Earlier on Saturday we showed you a picture of a phone labeled as the Nokia Lumia 719c, another CDMA enabled model expected to be made available to the 130 million customers of China Telecom.
