Nokia Lumia 920 Release Date Is November, Claims Source

A source close the the Finland-based phone maker, quoted by Reuters, has indicated that Nokia Lumia 920 release date was set for November, while Lumia 820 will be made available for purchase before the end of 2012.

A couple of days ago Nokia have officially introduced to the public the first members of their Windows Phone 8 line-up. Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 are the road-openers for the new Microsoft platform, which will be very important for the legendary Finnish company that is now struggling to fight back consistent financial loses.

Even though Nokia is now the world’s largest Windows Phone-powered phone maker and their latest creations are pretty attractive, the analysts are not so positive about the public’s response to the new Nokia smartphones.

Soon after the official press conference where the two Windows Phone 8 smartphones have been unveiled, Nokia’s shares dropped more than %15. Nokia didn’t reveal the details regarding the availability and the price and this one of the reasons for Nokia share drop. The price is an important factor, since the rivals of Samsung and Apple have just unveiled new products or are about to.

Even though the prices of Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 are still an enigma, it seems that the flagship device will hit the market as of November. Two different sources, have confirmed for Reuters and The Inquirer, that the Finnish phone maker will start shipping the new smartphone in the second half of November.

It seems that the launch of the Nokia Lumia 920 model will take place on several markets in the same time. Unlike Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 900, which were initially launched on the US market, while the other markets had to wait almost half a year.

The other high-end model of the Nokia Windows Phone 8 line-up will also debut by the end of 2012. The next-gen of mid-range and low-end Windows Phone models are expected to hit the market in early 2013.
