Just yesterday, an Italian carrier known as TIM originally tweeted that they would be launching the Nokia Lumia 920 on November 12th. People were definitely excited, but it rose the following question: when would we see it in the United States? There has been multiple sources telling BGR that the device will be available on AT&T in the United States starting on November 11th, two days after Samsung’s Galaxy Note II launches on AT&T. In the United States, the device is going to be an AT&T exclusive (much like the iPhone was for a while), unless you just happen to be famous actress Jessica Alba who able to get a red version of the device. She was probably given it for free, in fact, she was probably given a couple for free! TIM has also sold out of its pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 920, which makes me think that the device will be seeing some good success when it eventually does become available in the United States. This is definitely good news for Nokia.
Back to the topic of AT&T’s launch of the device. Sources have been saying that the Nokia Lumia 920 will be available on AT&T exclusively with three different colors. Last week Best Buy had also started taking pre-orders for the new smartphone set at a mere $149.99 with a two-year contract. The listing later disappeared from Best Buy’s website for some odd reason. Later on, the handset was listed with a “Sold Out” banner. That said, the Nokia Lumia 920 is definitely going to be getting some good publicity pretty soon here.
At the same time, this November 11th rumored launch date seems to actually dovetail with the tweet that was earlier released by Italian carrier TIM. It will be exactly one week past the original November 4th launch date that we originally heard passing through the internet earlier this month. Whatever the case, with rumors, you really need to take them with a grain of salt, but at the same time multiple sources are confirming the same thing. That said, I think we can at least expect the Nokia Lumia 920 to launch earlier on in November.
If you haven’t heard of the Nokia Lumia 920 before, it is going to be running Windows Phone 8 with a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. You should also keep in mind that this guy will have capabilities with 4G LTE.
All in all, let’s hope these rumors turn out to be true. I for one would not mind to see this bad boy do really well in the market despite how crazily popular it is with Android and iOS devices. Windows Phone 8 has a lot of promise, and I think a lot of us would hope for it to succeed.
Is anyone going to be getting the Nokia Lumia 920 when it releases in the next month or so? It is definitely a cool phone. It does not have all of the bells and whistles that a lot of Android devices have had so far, but it is definitely going to be a good handset nonetheless.
