The software giant is gearing up to launch its Windows Phone 7.5 operating system in the biggest mobile phone market in the world in China on March 21, but the surprising fact is that the called to “local” handset isn’t looking out as local. There was an earlier rumor from Microsoft that the company is releasing its Windows Phone 7.5 which is primarily meant for the Chinese market.

Although there are no specifications have been announced, but it is said to be that the Chinese Windows Phone 7.5 (codenamed “Tango”) include China-specific customization such as Tencent Weibo and QQ services instead of Twitter and Facebook whereas TechCrunch speculates that these will include the entry-level Lumia 610, and a China-specific Lumia 800 and Lumia  719C. These will be CDMA variants, which will support China’s varied 3G standards, including China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA. China Telecom has announced plans to carry the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 7.5 handsets by launch date.
