Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 confirmed for end of November Australian release
Though announced more than a month ago, the actual product have yet to reach public market and even after the official Windows Phone 8 event, Nokia doesn't seem too sure about release dates yet. This is one of the biggest obstacles from allowing Nokia to regain market share (I believe and hope they will) as availability dates and pricings are actually essential influences on our decisions.
But this issue is settled.
Along with announcements in other parts of the world, Nokia Australia has recently confirmed when it's flagship Lumia 920, along with it's mid-range counterpart Lumia 820, will hit the land down under. However, again, it was only announced as "from the end of November" with no exact dates were given. I suppose only time will tell in hopes that as each day passes, an exact date will be announced before more potential buyers make a decision to get another phone.
That said, the Lumia 920 will only be available exclusively from Telstra at A$829, in black, white, red and yellow (where's the cyan?) while the Lumia 820 will be retailing at A$649 from Vodafone, Optus and other leading retailers. Pre-orders for the Lumia 920 from Telstra is expected to start this week (4 November). Meanwhile, be notified at http://www.telstra.com.au/nokia.
I can honestly say that with my cyan Lumia 900 in hand, I can't wait to try my hands on the Lumia 920 and experience first hand the changes.
