Nokia's boss and China Telecom's boss got together to announce the first CDMA Windows Phone for China - it's a version of the Nokia Lumia 800, named Lumia 800C, and it will be China Telecom's first Lumia phone.

The Lumia 800C packs all the cool features that the regular 800 has (plus it adds CDMA radio). That includes Nokia Maps, Drive and Music. Maps and Drive have free maps for China and other countries as usual, but tap into local content providers for better location-based services.

The 800C will come with magazine apps from Trends preinstalled (Cosmopolitan, FHM, Harper's Bazaar and Esquire) and the first 100,000 people to get the phone will be able to download Fruit Ninja and Plants vs. Zombies for free.

The Nokia Lumia 800C will be available in April through Tianyi FlyYoung shops, Nokia stores and many other retailers (both brick and mortar and online). Off contract, the Lumia 800C will go for 3600 Chinese yuan ($570).

A more affordable Nokia Lumia 610C is also in the works and it is expected to hit shelves in Q2.
