The Nokia Lumia 920 launched last week, came with mind blowing display and latest technology under the hood. There were many who wanted to know, when is the flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone going on sale?
There are still no updates however, but we can give a pretty educated guess. According to Reuters, the phone will sell from November, based on information gleaned from a ‘European telecoms operator’. The information sounds right, as it is quite obvious that the phone was never going to land before the release of Windows 8, although there is probably a bit of disappointment that Nokia hasn’t scheduled the launch to coincide with the new Windows software in October.
With the busy festive season nearby, it does give Nokia an ideal platform to work. With pricing at a premium, the Nokia and network staff will need to work too. The same leak claims that the Lumia 920 will be similarly priced to Samsung’s Galaxy S III. Which means the phone will have to make sales purely based on hardware and software strength rather than on price. This is undoubtedly a tough job to carry out by phone staff.
This becomes more difficult with a new iPhone on the market too, as it is almost certain to launch this week and be in the shops by October. Add to that the plethora of new Androids and Nokia will not find the Christmas market easy.
Only time can say how the Nokia Lumia 920 occupying Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor and Microsoft’s yet-to-be released mobile operating system can do.
