With less than two weeks until Microsoft is set to officially unveil more details on the Windows Phone 8 operating system, the hype around Nokia’s new Lumia smartphones continues to rise.We already have reports coming in from all European countries on Lumia 920 and 820 pricing options and availability, though the info has yet to be confirmed by the Finnish company.
Today, we have new details on the upcoming release of Nokia’s Lumia 920 and 820, this time coming from Germany.
We already reported last week on Lumia 820 and HTC Windows Phone 8S availability at O2 Germany and now we have more info on the release of Nokia’s flagship smartphone, the Lumia 920.
The folks over at GSMArena have just learned that at least one German authorized reseller will offer the Nokia Lumia 920 starting November 1.
In fact, both Nokia Windows Phone 8 devices are expected to go on sale on November 1 at MediaMarkt. Check it out here.
Customers who wish to purchase the Nokia Lumia 920 will have to come up with no less than 650 EUR (840 USD) upfront.
The Lumia 820 is much cheaper, so those who cannot afford to grab Nokia’s flagship device can try out this one for only 450 EUR (580 USD).
Even though we’ve seen cheaper pricings for Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices in other European countries, we’re assuming these are just preliminary numbers, which might or might not change as we near the phones’ release date.
On the other hand, German carrier Mobilcom Debitel announced last week it would sell the Lumia 920 for the same 650 EUR (840 USD) amount. In addition, the operator confirmed it would carry the HTC Windows Phone 8 for 550 EUR (710 USD) outright.
This puts HTC’s Windows Phone 8 flagship smartphone right between Nokia’s Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 when it comes to prices.
