AT&T announces Lumia 925 plans, confirming rumors
We rounded-out last week with a rumor about AT&T and Nokia, suggesting the carrier was planning to flesh out its Windows Phone lineup a little and would add the Lumia 925 to the mix sometime in mid-September. Alongside that claim, we heard that AT&T would be reducing the Lumia 920’s price. Well sure enough, over the weekend we saw the 920 get just the kind of price cuts that had been rumored, but there was still no word of the 925. Today, AT&T finally comes forward with an announcement, revealing plans to sell the Lumia 925 beginning September 13.
Pricing matches what we heard to expect, with the 925 taking the 920’s old $100-on-contract price point. While the phone won’t be available until September 13, pre-orders for the 925 are set to begin tomorrow.
As we’ve mentioned before, the 925’s big selling points are the upgraded camera it enjoys compared to the 920, now with enhanced lens elements, as well as its high-contrast 4.5-inch OLED display. If you don’t need all that, the 920 on AT&T is now only about $50 with a two-year contract, following the recent cuts.
