Nokia slashes prices on older Lumia devices Nokia has announced price cuts for its current Lumia devices, as it clears inventory in front of the upcoming Lumia 820 and 920 launches.
The Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 smartphones will see continued price cuts, and have already dropped in price by an average of 12.5 percent during the last month.

Mobile analyst firm CCS Insight says the cuts are not "a big surprise given the looming arrival of the next generation of Windows smartphones."

The Lumia 800 went on sale last November and has seen its price drop by a quarter while the newer Lumia 900 has seen prices fall by 20 percent since launch in January.

Nokia's new Windows Phone 8 devices are the new flagships for the company, as it fights to remain relevant in the smartphone market. In Germany and Italy, the price is 499 euros for the 820 and 649 for the 920. The devices will go on sale on November 12th, available in at least four color ways.

It is unclear when the American release date is.
