One of the wireless carriers that will bring the new Windows Phone 8-based Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone to shelves in the coming weeks appears to be Sweden’s Telenor.
The wireless carrier will make the smartphone available to its users on monthly contracts with a price tag starting at 339 kr / month ($51 / €39), which brings the total cost of the deal up to 8136 kr ($1233 / €940).
Users interested in purchasing the upcoming mobile phone without the signing of a contract agreement will be able to do so as well, while having to pay 6000 kr ($909 / €693) for it. All the necessary info is available on this page on the wireless carrier's website.
As a MyNokiaBlog user notes, the phone is actually priced lower than both iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III. This alone should attract more users to the device.
Nokia’s Lumia 920 smartphone was made official with a 4.5 inch Pure Motion HD+ touchscreen display capable of delivering a 1200 x 768-pixel resolution, as well as with a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor inside, and 1GB of RAM.
The smartphone features 32GB of internal memory, with no microSD memory card slot to expand it, while also packing 4G connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS receiver, Wi-Fi Hotspot, NFC, and wireless charging.
On the back, the new smartphone features an 8-megapixel PureView photo snapper, capable of offering full HD video recording capabilities and said to be one of the best cameras on a smartphone today. A front camera to make video calls is also available.
The Nokia Lumia 920 measures 130.3 x 70.8 x 10.7 mm and weighs 185 grams. Its battery is said to be capable of offering up to 10 hours of talk time.
Additionally, the smartphone offers all the features and capabilities that Windows Phone 8 was announced with (although we still don’t have a full list of the platform’s functionality), as well as with applications and improvements coming from Nokia itself.
