Nokia’s first Windows phones: Lumia 800 and 710?

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop is scheduled to take the stage at Nokia World at 9 a.m. Wednesday London time (1 a.m. Seattle time), when he is widely expected to unveil Nokia’s first smartphones running on the Windows Phone platform.

A lot is at stake for both Nokia and Microsoft with this unveiling.

Ahead of that, rumors are flying about what will be introduced. The WinRumors site, run by Tom Warren who is on the scene at Nokia World, says Elop will introduce the Lumia 800 (previously codenamed “Sea Ray”) and Lumia 710 devices (previously called “Sabre”), and has photos.

Guess we’ll all know soon.

A number of MIcrosoft speakers are on the agenda, including Joe Belfiore, corporate vice president of Windows Phone program, who will be talking on building a different kind of UI; and Achim Berg, corporate vice president of Windows Phone marketing, who said earlier this year that he believes Windows Phone could capture more than 20 percent of the smartphone market by 2015.
