Nokia Lumia phones coming to Australia in March

Nokia's Lumia smartphone line may have gotten good reviews, but in terms of sales the jury is still out on how many of the phones the company will be able to convince people to buy. Now it looks like a new market for the Windows Phone-powered Lumia line will be opening up in a few more weeks.

The Australian Financial Review web site reports that the Lumia 710 and the Lumia 800 will both make their Australian debuts sometime in March. Nokia Australia managing director Chris Carr says that the Lumia 800 will be sold via a number of different wireless carriers in that country, including Telstra, Optus and Vodafone.

Nokia will also sell the Lumia 710 in Australia, although it has yet to sign agreements with Australian wireless carriers for that device. Pricing for the two phones has yet to be announced.

There's no word on when or even if Australians will be able to purchase the Lumia 900, the larger and LTE-based smartphone that was announced at CES 2012 and is scheduled to be launched in the US on March 18 via AT&T for $99.99.
