But it's actually just two months, and the handsets themselves are only now hitting the shelves at your average high street phone shop. And so the question remains – are they good enough to turn things around for Nokia?
Based on reviews and hands on reports, the answer would be a cautious “yes”. Cautious only because there seems to be a lot of politics going on when approaching Windows Phone 8 handsets, and especially ones with a Nokia badge on.
You're not simply reviewing a new Nokia, you're delivering a verdict on Stephen Elop, live tiles, Android, the iPhone, PureView, MeeGo, and more besides. In other words, it's complicated.
So what do the analysts say? That positive reviews don't always sell phones, and that so far the latest Lumias look likely to only buy some more time for Nokia.
“Positive reviews are a great start but as we have seen many times before these won't deliver strong sales volumes on their own,” Canalys analyst Pete Cunningham told Reuters.
FIM Securities' Michael Schroder said he expects sales “will not be massive”, predicting between 1 and 3 million of the new Lumia pair to be sold, which is at best on a par with the 2.9m Lumias Nokia shifted in Q3.
Given the number of new devices that have launched across the board over the past couple of months, in some ways simply maintaining the status quo is a victory in itself. But in Nokia's case, just holding station isn't good enough.
Right now was when Elop's brave new world was supposed to become a reality, when Windows Phone – with Nokia in the passenger seat – was finally going to put its foot to the floor and start eating up Android and iOS' market share.
Back in February 2011, Elop promised it would take two years to make a success of Nokia and Windows Phone. That means there's just three months to go, and an awful lot of work to do.
