The Nokia Lumia 920 is presently the most attractive Windows Phone 8 running smartphone. Of course, there is also the HTC 8X and Samsung Ativ S, but I guess they are behind Nokia’s phone, because both devices are secondary for their manufacturers, while the Lumia 920 is the current flagship of the Finnish company. It’s already available via AT&T for $99.99 on contract. Amazon has been selling it for the same price tag as well, but now consumers can get it for a $50 slashed price.
The Nokia Lumia 920 for $49.99 is a perfect deal, and though Black Friday deals will let you get the best Android devices on the cheap, those who want to switch to Lumia shouldn’t miss their chance. All colors including yellow, red, cyan, black and white are available at the same price tag.
AT&T is exclusively selling the Nokia Lumia 920 in the States. All in all, it has some advantages among other carriers, because AT&T was the first carrier in the US to launch a high-end Nokia Windows Phone smartphone in this market, and it didn’t misjudge. A few days ago AT&T launched the Lumia 920 in five colors, but now three options are already sold out.
At the end of October Nokia’s video ad showed only three colors of the Nokia Lumia 920 — cyan, white and black. But we earlier saw red and yellow paint jobs in different leaks. Thus, it was out of doubt Nokia would release the Lumia 920 in other colors too.
Well, the Nokia Lumia 920 has been sold in stores of AT&T, Amazon and Microsoft. I mean it was available via many variants but Nokia didn’t make any statement to let us know how many units were sold. The only thing we learned was that Microsoft had sold out the Lumia 920. Now it turns out the phone is out of stock at AT&T as well, though this status refers to only the aforementioned three color options, while the black and white models are available.
I don’t want to make any assumptions on this because either AT&T had few devices in its inventory and therefore they are sold out so soon, or people went crazy with the various colors of the Nokia Lumia 920. I hope the second.
AT&T has announced Nokia Windows Phone 8 smartphones at cheaper prices than expected.
Those who want to experience the first PureView smartphone running WP OS should pay $100, sign a two-year contract and get their hands on the Lumia 920. The phone costs $50 less than what we saw at Best Buy. The unlocked Lumia 920 will be yours for only $450; accordingly, all previous rumors stating the device would come at $600 off-contract were fake.
If you can’t afford yourself this high-end smartphone, AT&T is offering the mid-range Lumia 820 for $50. It yields to the Lumia 920 in many aspects but for $50 you’ll be given a chance to own a Windows Phone 8 smartphone packed with a 4.3-inch screen, dual-core processor and 8MP camera. Both devices are ready for pre-order starting from today, November 7, and will be out on November 9.
Besides these handsets AT&T will release another Windows Phone 8 device, the HTC 8X. The latter will be offered in two variants — the 16GB for $200, and the 8GB (carrier exclusive) for $100. The 8GB HTC 8X will be launched in California Blue or Limelight, and AT&T will be the only carrier in the US to offer the Limelight-colored option.
The Nokia Lumia 920 rocks. This is what Nokia needed all these years. Now the Lumia 920 is here, and once it’s available for purchase it will beat all its rivals. After AT&T announced this phone is exclusive alongside with the Lumia 820, many geeks including me were criticizing Nokia saying it was the worst decision made by the manufacturer. But now that AT&T’s 4G network is the largest in its class, many consumers will switch to AT&T, and consequently, to the Lumia 920. In this regard, one of Nokia’s Facebook photos should be recalled, which said, “Calm down and switch to Lumia.”
The latest ad made by AT&T is called Hello, and it clearly shows the Lumia 920 and AT&T’s 4G network will be the best way to share the noteworthy moments of your life — the Lumia 920 will shoot it, while AT&T’s network will spread it with the light speed.
Unfortunately, the ad doesn’t disclose when the carrier will launch the phone, but it shows there will be at least three color options available for purchase — white, black and cyan.
It’s no secret AT&T will launch the Nokia Lumia 820 and 920 in the US, while T-Mobile will release only the mid-range Lumia 810. There is also the Verizon Lumia 822. So we can say the more affordable Lumia range device will be available via three major carriers in the States and most likely it will succeed. We can’t claim the same thing about the Lumia 920, which is packed with way more powerful features. Anyway, both devices will be out soon (in a month), and you shouldn’t be surprised at hearing they have passed the FCC gates.
As for FCC docs, they reveal the Lumia 920 will support both the 700MHz LTE and the AWS-based LTE bands available for AT&T. The latter is also used in Canada, so the Rogers’ own model will be identical with that of AT&T. The Nokia Lumia 820 will work only on AT&T, due to LTE limitations.
AT&T has announced the Lumia 920 will be exclusive in the US, so the carrier can benefit a lot. As for the mid-range Lumia 820, it will be launched via many carriers, so those users who have been complaining about AT&T’s exclusiveness on the Lumia 920 can get their hands on it.
Nokia has already announced the pricing and availability for its flagship device Lumia 920 but there was no info regarding the US launch. This omission was corrected by AT&T, which yesterday announced that the Lumia 920 and 820 will arrive in its stores in November. Moreover, the Lumia 920 will be exclusive for the carrier, which is not that pleasant news for many smartphone users.
We earlier learned the Nokia Lumia 920 would be launched via AT&T on October 21. But it was rejected by another rumor claiming AT&T wouldn’t launch the phone in the US. This didn’t sound reasonable because AT&T was the US carrier that scored a lot by selling the high-end Lumia 900. So when its successor was announced, people were somehow sure AT&T would include it its list of smartphones.
The second largest carrier in the US has already announced the features and the colors the Nokia Lumia 920 will be launched in. Its specs list is familiar to you, and there is no need to list the features one more time. As for the colors, it’s surprising to see the cyan variant of the Lumia 920 because the cyan variant was not present at the official unveiling of the Lumia 920 and 820. It was only later leaked in an official video.
Below is the first hands-on video of the cyan Lumia 920.
Lastly, AT&T didn’t disclose the exact launch date and pricing info.
This year the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 will be Nokia’s main warriors but if they are not launched via many carriers, Nokia will be forced to forget about victory. Recently Canadian Bell, Telus and even Rogers made it clear they won’t release these devices in 2012. As to the US, the phones were expected to be available via a number of major and local carriers but the latest leaks reveal another picture.
AT&T is the only Nokia-devoted carrier in the US after T-Mobile (if it can be called so). The carrier benefited from the sales of the Lumia 900, and we used to think the Lumia 920 would be available in its stores too. Moreover, a few weeks ago we learned AT&T would launch the Nokia Lumia 920 on October 21. Turns out it’s not so.
As WMPowerUser reports, veteran leaker E revealed AT&T’s roadmap for Q4 2012, in which there are only two Windows Phone 8 devices — the Nokia Lumia 820 and the HTC Windows Phone 8X. As the tweet above shows, there is no Nokia Lumia 920 in the list.
This news threw us into confusion because it’s unbelievable AT&T won’t release the Lumia 920. On the other hand, E has always come up with trustworthy info. Any ideas?
The Nokia Lumia 920 was created to make competition to such devices as the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3. But the latter is already sold in millions, while the iPhone will be launched on September 21. In this context, the Lumia 920 is not in a beneficial situation. As “trusted sources” claim, the phone will be launched only on October 21.
The entire world is waiting for the Lumia 920 (including me) but I guess this brand has not yet reached Apple with its popularity. I mean it’s probably a marketing move to delay the Lumia 920’s launch in order to let the iPhone fever pass and only after that launch the first Nokia Windows Phone 8 smartphone.
Other than that, Windows Phone 8 was released only a few days ago, and the carrier jointly with Nokia needs some time to round out the final testing of the device and its performance on AT&T’s network.
As there is no official feedback on this rumor, we can think this is the date for pre-orders, while the final devices will be delivered in November.
The Nokia Phi flagship handset coming via AT&T will most likely be unveiled on September 5 at a joint event organized by Nokia and Microsoft. It’s not the company’s only Windows Phone 8 smartphone as it has promised to make WP8 handsets for each major carrier in the US. Seems Nokia keeps its promise because yesterday we introduced two other devices, the Nokia Arrow for T-Mobile and the Nokia Atlas for Verizon. But they have not been spotted in any photo, while the Nokia Phi has been. The photos were very blurry, and the only things we got were the larger screen and the Lumia 800/900 like design. Take a look at the Nokia design patent photo, where the Nokia Phi is drawn from all sides.
The front of the phone has a 4.7-inch display at an unknown resolution but it’s not curved as we thought earlier. Contrary to this, the back of the Phi is a bit curved and bulky, which is probably made to fit the battery with bigger capacity. On the bottom we can see dual-speakers that are provided for a great sound system.
The right hand side is identical with the Lumia 900, though there is a huge “gap” between the power and volume controls. As a result the camera button is pushed further down. The top side includes a microUSB slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
If you were attentive, the Nokia Lumia Phi emulates the N9/Lumia 800/900 design, but it is way larger and that’s what we need now.
Finally the US variant of the Nokia Lumia 900 launched back in April via AT&T is getting its portion of Tango update. The update was greatly anticipated, and a look at the changelog is enough to conclude our expectations were not in vain. Canadian consumers can also download it and give new breath to their smartphones.
The update includes a number of useful improvements, such as the flip-to-silence feature, which silences the incoming call when a user puts it face down. Plus, it comes with a battery life improvement. Also, users can access the camera directly from the lock screen. And finally, the phone is also more consistent when booting up.
Canadian users can also get improved proximity sensors and access to the Contacts Share app.
Once your Nokia Lumia 900 shows the update is available, it can be downloaded via Zune for Windows or the Windows Phone 7 connector for Mac. As the update consists of several more updates, you must take into account it may last almost 30 minutes to complete.
