Nokia’s Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 smart phone is one of the best Windows Phone 8 smart phones in the market right now. The device has really high specs which any power user will find sufficient. And of course, when the device is so powerful, the developer base for the device will also be powerful. With the release of Windows Phone 8 SDK by the Redmond based operating system giant, Microsoft, numerous developers from all around the world are excited to develop apps for the platform. But the problem is, these developers are spread across the globe. And a smart phone which is designed to work with American wireless carriers will not work in any other part of the world, and vice versa.
The people over at Nokia seem to have figured this out now. So at BUILD 2012, they announced something that they say they will never announce it ever again. Any guesses? Well, that’s correct, a universal Nokia Lumia 920 developer edition. That is awesome, I know. Keeping in mind the developers from across the world, the Finnish based smart phone giant has released a Lumia 920 developer edition which will work on almost all the wireless carriers around the world, at least theoretically.
The company says that this will be one of the kind devices and the company will not make any other device like this, ever again. At least that is what the company says. From the info on the box of the smart phone, you will able to figure out that the device will work on WCDMA frequencies of 850MHz, 900MHz, 1900MHz, 2100MHz, 1700 2100MHz; and LTE bands supported include 700MHz, 850MHz, 1900MHz, 1700 1900MHz.
Well, I guess that covers pretty much every band there is. But since most developers and not concerned about the color of a developer edition smart phone, Nokia has released the Lumia 920 developer edition smart phone in only black color, which according to me is good enough. Also, if you are planning to buy this one, you will get it for $1, 199 on eBay. But you will have to wait a bit longer as the stocks are already sold out right now.
