Both smartphones will be available from Mobilcom Debitel
O2 Germany won’t be the only carrier to offer Windows Phone 8 devices in the country. Mobicom Debitel is another operator that has just confirmed it will launch the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC Windows Phone 8X devices.Moreover, the carrier even announced the prices of these smartphones along with their approximate availability timelines.
The folks over at WMPoweruser report that HTC Windows Phone 8X will be available at Mobilcom Debitel in California blue and Graphite black color options.
The smartphone is expected to hit shelves later in October or in early November (29.10-11.11) for 549 EUR (705 USD) outright.
The second Windows Phone 8 device that will go live on Mobilcom Debitel airwaves, Nokia Lumia 920 will be available in White, Red, Yellow and Black. Customers will be able to purchase this one from November for 649 EUR (835 USD) off-contract.
Although the German carrier confirmed the upcoming availability of two Windows Phone 8 devices, it’s likely that Mobilcom Debitel will expand its portfolio with additional handsets in the future.
HTC 8X and Nokia Lumia 920 are both flagship devices, so we expect Mobilcom Debitel to offer mid-range device as well in order to attract more customers.
Even though both HTC 8X and Nokia Lumia 920 are flagship smartphones, the Finnish company’s device is much more advanced technologically.
For example, the HTC 8X comes with 4.3-inch Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution, whereas the Nokia Lumia 920 boasts an incredible 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display that offers HD (768 x 1280 pixels) resolution.
Nokia Lumia 920’s 8-megapixl rear camera feature PureView technology, Carl Zeiss optics, optical image stabilization, autofocus, dual LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording. HTC’s 8-megapixel camera doesn’t have so many complex features tough.
In fact that’s one of the reasons that the HTC Windows Phone 8X is 100 EUR (130 USD) cheaper than Nokia’s smartphone.
