AT&T and Nokia today announced that their bringing Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 to United States on AT&T’s LTE network. AT&T will start selling the phones in early November though there’s no fixed date yet.
“Exclusive to our customers and featuring unique innovations in imaging technology, wireless charging and a bright, sensitive display – all on the nation’s largest 4G network – the Lumia 920 will be one of the hottest phones for the holidays,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices and Developer Services, AT&T Mobility.
“We welcome AT&T’s decision to offer the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820, which, when added to what we’ve witnessed in other markets, underscores the momentum behind our Lumia devices and the broader Windows ecosystem,” said Olivier Puech, president of Nokia Americas. “Our continued collaboration with AT&T is an important component for Nokia’s success in the U.S. market.”
Lumia 920 brings along many innovations like PureView camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), Wireless charging and superior display technology to name a few. Lumia 820 features changable shells which completely change the looks of the phone. Besides, few shells also enable the wireless charging on Lumia 820.
