For a long time Nokia was the King of the Eastern telephone networks but failed to tackle the increased numbers of smartphones from Apple and Samsung and saw its sun set.

Now it seems that Nokia is banging on the back door asking if it can have its market back. This time instead of Symbian based phones it is using Microsoft's Windows Mobile 7.

Nokia's push in China is a test run for the Windows 8 release. So far the operating system has had limited success in Europe and the United States.

According to Reuters, Nokia Chief Executive Stephen Elop wants to use models based on the Lumia 610 and Lumia 800 smartphones.

The Lumia 800C will be sold without a carrier contract for $573 from April. Pricing for the cheaper 610C model, to launch in China in the second quarter, will be announced later.

The phone models will be based around the CDMA technology of China Telecom, the nation's third-largest carrier. Nokia plans to bring all four Windows Phone models to the Chinese market in the second quarter and also adopt China Unicom's wireless technology.

Eventually the plan is to have the Nokia Windows Phones will eventually run on all three of China's mobile networks including China Mobile.
