Wondering when Nokia's new Lumia line will be launching in the United States? Well, the company has fueled speculation that the Windows Phone handsets will make their U.S. debut early next year by announcing that it is to hold a press event at CES 2012 in January.

Nokia CES 2012 invite

While the Finnish company has not confirmed that its Lumia phones will be the subject of the event, its Metro-themed invite certainly suggests that Windows Phone devices will be the center of attention. And it seems like this is an event not to be missed, with Nokia promising to introduce us to "the future of smart devices" and show off "stunning demos of Nokia technology in action."

Reports have claimed that the company will finally announce the much-rumored Lumia 900 — a high-end device with a larger display than the Lumia 800, in addition to NFC capabilities and other enhancements. We may have already seen the device in a promotional video aimed at developers that Nokia published a few weeks ago.

It's possible, of course, that the company will actually unveil no new devices, and that it will just use the event to announce the Lumia 710 and the Lumia 800 for the U.S. However, with teasers like that on the bottom of the invite, we're expecting something a little more exciting.

What would you like to see from Nokia in January?
