Nokia Planning More Windows 8 Mobile Phones

Nokia may be releasing two lower-end Windows 8 smartphones.

The Finnish company unveiled the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 handsets last week, but it seems that two more Lumia smartphones are on their way.

The 'Zeal' and 'Flame' are rumoured to be arriving in the first quarter of 2013, and they are expected to have the Windows 8 operating system that the latest devices utilise.

Microsoft's Windows 8 software will be hoping to impress. It is competing against Google Android and Apple iOS which are the market leaders.

These two new handsets are likely to be lower-end mobile phones. This is good news for many consumers who are looking for more variety at this end of the spectrum – many smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 4S cost around £500.

Rumours are that the 'Flame' will include a five-megapixel camera, four-inch screen, and 4GB of storage. The 'Zeal' will apparently have a 4.3-inch screen and 8GB of storage.
