Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 Launched in the Netherlands, Available from 2013
The smartphones will be available for €600/$775 and €500/$645, respectively
Nokia has already announced the upcoming availability of its new Lumia series powered by the Windows Phone 8 platform. Unfortunately, the handsets have yet to hit shelves in lots of countries.On top of that, Nokia Lumia 920 is sold out at most carriers and retailers that received the smartphone in stock a few weeks ago.
The Finnish company is struggling to meet the high demand for its Windows Phone flagship handset, though word is the next batch of Lumia 920 units will arrive next week.
Nu.nl reports that both Lumia 920 and 820 have been officially announced in the Netherlands. Sadly, Windows Phone fans won’t be able to purchase either until early next year.
According to Nokia Netherlands official Stella Jansen, the company decided to announce the smartphones so late due to “phased rollout” policy. Unfortunately, it‘s a bit weird to announce two hot products and not be able to offer them for purchase.
Anyway, Nokia Netherlands confirmed the Lumia 920 would be available for no less than for €600/$775 outright. The package will also include the wireless charging plate.
Customers who can’t afford to purchase the Lumia 920 may want to give the Lumia 820 a try. The smartphone will be available for €500/$645 off-contract and will include a wireless charging cover. Keep in mind that you will still need to purchase the charger separately.
Starting January 2013, both Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 will be available for purchase in the Netherlands in various color options, including red, yellow, cyan, black and white.
Nokia Lumia 920 integrates PureView technology for the 8.7-megapixel camera, which also features Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus, dual-LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording.
It also boasts a hyper-vibrant 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ ClearBlack display that supports 768 x 1280 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coating.
