Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) has officially brought its Windows Phone line to China.

According to a post on the Windows Phone Blog, the new device is an "unlocked" HTC Eternity (meaning its an "open market" mobile device).

Nokia (NYSE: NOK) and other handset makers will be delivering devices to China later this year, the WP Blog noted.
