Nokia Lumia 710 and 800 confirmed for Canada
At the CES 2012 Microsoft keynote log from engadget, if you search for 9:53, you will see the little line mentioning both the 800 and 710 will be coming to Rogers and Telus.
That's the good news, now prepare for some bad news. Looks like Robbers will be getting the Lumia 710 exclusively (likely the Fido brand will see it), and the Lumia 800 will be exclusive to Smelus (from engadget)
Yes, our dreams of WIND or Mobiliticity getting some sweet WP7 love is once again crushed.
On the other hand, no word whether or not the Lumia 900 (with dual camera lenses!!!) will be making its way up North.
There's always the unlocked route I guess.
More on the new WP7 handsets later on from CES.
*UPDATE* - There's a price going around for the Lumia 710. $49.99 on a 2 year term, no off contract pricing yet. The 2 year term likely means that Fido will be getting it.
