Nokia planning US invasion in early 2012: LTE, CDMA phones expected, Verizon might be in the mix
Nokia unveiled two Windows Phone handsets today – the Nokia Lumia 800 and 710, but none of them got a specific release date for the elusive for the Finns US market. This doesn't mean, though, that the company isn't planning to widen its presence on US soil. Stephen Elop explicitly stated that there are phones planned for the huge North American market and LTE network support is in the plans. Not only that, Nokia will also release CDMA devices for carriers like Sprint and Verizon.

Sadly, that's not anytime soon and CEO Stephen Elop himself confirmed that Nokia will miss this Holiday season stateside and only arrive early 2012. 

Now, this all you might have already heard if you've followed the live webcast and our liveblog, but what you might have not known is the fact that Verizon representatives were at Nokia World as well. To be more precise, Thisismynext spotted a Verizon staffer around the Nokia Lumia 800 booth. Combine LTE, CDMA and Verizon, and you arrive at a pretty tempting combination. Moreover, this confirms that Nokia has been hard at work at fixing its spotty relationship with US carriers. Will it manage to deliver an up-to-date portfolio in the dynamic American market? Chime in with your opinions in the comments below.
