AT&T in talks with Nokia over Windows PhoneNokia’s Windows Phone offerings, the Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 710, have yet to make their way into the US market, but if it arrives who will be the lucky carrier to offer the device? As it turns out, an AT&T executive, Glenn Lurie, has confirmed that the carrier is currently in talks with Nokia to begin offering their smartphones for 2012. This information was revealed during a Morgan Stanley conference held in Barcelona.

The deal is still being completed, but Glenn Lurie said that the carrier is already finalizing discussions with Nokia. Apart from that piece of information, it was not mentioned as to which models we could expect. Will it be the Nokia Lumia 800 or the Lumia 710, or could we expect even newer models instead?

Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop has mentioned that US customers will have to wait until 2012 before getting their hands on Nokia’s Windows Phone offerings, but promised 4G LTE and CDMA support, which indicates that Verizon could be another carrier that will be bringing in Nokia Windows Phone devices.
