AT&T has just announced plans to carry Nokia’s new flagship Windows Phone 8 devices, the Lumia 920 and the Lumia 820. Nokia fans have been excited about these for a while, considering that Windows Phone 8 brings a bit more capacity for impressive specs, and Nokia has added its Pureview imaging to the flagship 920.
In case you’ve forgotten, the Lumia 920 has just about everything you could ask for in a smartphone, with a 4.5-inch 720p display, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, a relatively large 2,000mAh battery, and of course, the heady combination of Windows Phone 8 and Pureview imaging.
The Lumia 820, on the other hand, isn’t necessarily something to write home about. But, for a mid-range device (4.3-inch display, 8GB of internal memory, and a 5-megapixel camera) the Lumia 820 is a fine option for any Microsoft fans out there.
To boot, the Lumia 820 is the first Lumia to sport interchangeable shells, so you can switch from red to blue to yellow. Or whatever. A lot rests on the success of these phones, as Nokia has recently made it clear that Android and iOS devices are huge contenders in the mobile arena.
We’d expected for a while that Nokia’s Lumia phones would hit AT&T, and now it’s official. AT&T says the phones will be available in November.
