Phone carries top of the line processor, class-leading lens, and intriguing body design

Eager to get your hands on a hot Windows Phone 8 handset?

Well Microsoft reportedly is on track for an Oct. 29 unveil event.  It's going to be shipping release to manufacturing (RTM) code this week for the new smartphone operating system.

One of the most hotly anticipated WP8 handsets is the Lumia 920 from Finnish phonemaker Nokia Oyj. (OMX:NOK1V).  According to two independent reports -- TechRadar and The Verge -- the Lumia 900's WP8 successor will land on Nov. 2 on AT&T Inc.'s (T) network in the U.S.  AT&T is reportedly already busily testing the device in its labs, to ensure a silky smooth launch.

Meanwhile, Reuters reports two sources as saying that the high-end WP8 device will launch across Europe's various carriers in the "second half of November".


The Lumia 920 features a glove-friendly 4.5" WXGA (768x1280) curved glass capacitive multi-touch display, a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 32GB of storage, 2000 mAh battery, integrated NFC, built-in wireless charging using the Qi wireless standard, and of course, Windows Phone 8.  
 
Other highlights include an 8.7MP "PureView" camera (f/2.0) with a Carl Zeiss lens and a wider selection of eye-catching polycarbonate bodies -- yellow, red, white, grey, and black.

No Blue?

Kinda bummed. Really like the blue color of my Lumia 900. Yellow is just to bright for me.

Agreed. I think that the gray color is my preference of these new ones, but the Blue 900 was my favorite by far.

I was just going to post the same thing. It's strange because the blue/cyan coolor was sort of the 'featured' color of the 900. Looks like yellow is now the featured color.

I think the blue is gone because it doesn't work well with the glossy effect of the latest style.

The white at&t version of the L900 is glossy... it feels like crap... but not as slick as the plastic-gloss of the Galaxy S3.
