Nokia: Lumia smartphones with WP8 will arrive in November


According to a statement of the company, the top model "Lumia 920" costs € 649 without a contract and the cheaper "Lumia 820" € 499. If street prices do not settle down significantly, it will not be easy for the Finns to compete against the competition of Samsung and Apple in particular, to get new customers interested in their devices.

The enthusiasm of the carriers seems to be limited: only Vodafone takes both devices in the program (the MVNO Mobilcom-Debitel, however, also has both devices "under different tariffs and contracts" on offer). Both Telekom and O2 only offer their customers the Lumia 820. Both the Lumia 920 and the 820 support LTE on five frequency bands (800, 900, 1800, 2100, and 2600 megahertz) and would work with all network operators. E-Plus - which does not yet operate its own LTE network - is not even mentioned in the Nokia announcement.
