Nokia Lumia 920 exclusive to AT&T for first 6 months
Nokia’s latest flagship smartphone will be the Nokia Lumia 920, which features Microsoft’s latest Windows Phone OS. Although Nokia has stirred up quite a bit of hype for the Lumia 920, the device will only be available via AT&T for the first six months.
The Nokia Lumia 920 is possibly considered the top dog among the Windows Phone flagships which will launch sometime this fall or early next year. However, the Lumia 920’s exclusiveness to AT&T may prevent it from getting the exposures Nokia desperately wants.
Six months is not that long. But for a company like Nokia, the longer it takes for their Windows Phone 8 devices to catch on, the more money the Finnish firm will hemorrhage.
Sales of the Lumia 820 were rather dreary, but Nokia is hoping that the Lumia 920 along with the fresh WP8 platform will give the company a much needed boost. The Lumia 920 is a well spec’d device boasting a Snapdragon S4 dual-core clocked at 1.5GHz with an Adreno 225 GPU. It also features a 1280×768 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, and a 2000mAh battery.
Nokia also claims that the Lumia 920’s touchscreen will be so sensitive that it’s operable even when users are wearing gloves.
Unfortunately for many current Lumia 8XX users, Nokia is not planning on providing an OS update for current WP7 devices.
