AT&T Announces Nokia Lumia 820, Lumia 920
It was only yesterday that we were talking about rumors of how AT&T would announce, and subsequently begin sales of the Lumia 920. Best guess at the time looked to an announcement and pricing details coming around October 21, pre-orders the week after that, and availability commencing on November 4. Maybe AT&T heard those rumors, too, and wanted to set things straight, as today it went ahead and issued a statement announcing the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920.
Unfortunately, pricing info has still yet to enter into play. We’ve heard enough off-contract pricing for the European market, but we’re still curious to learn just what price points get selected for subsidized US carrier launches.
What AT&T does manage to share is that both phones will land in November. While it doesn’t provide a date, at least that serves to definitively debunk previous rumors that it could get the 920 out the door in late October.
According to this, AT&T claims that it will have an exclusive on the 920, at least for the holiday season. That’s quite interesting, as we’ve seen the 920 on a leaked Verizon roadmap, supposedly arriving in November, as well.
AT&T didn’t share any pics of the new hardware, leaving us unable to confirm the rumor that it will arrive without carrier badging. Update: Well, crap.
