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.

That is good... kind of.

When there is so little carriers selling your product, they need to sell the 820 to EVERYONE.

The Lumia 820 is really the one that will sell best IMHO... its a bit smaller and looks far better than the 920. Its options are better.

At least Nokia/MS aren't waiting almost a year to release product this time.

Verizon is to introduce multiple unspecified Windows Phone models in the fourth quarter, with Verizon representatives saying that the company has been in talks with Nokia. Verizon would be selling a version of the Lumia 920, possibly also in the first week of November

Nope. The leak said the 822 was going to be on Verizon but there was no mention of any 920 type model. It looks like AT&T are going to be the only ones selling the higher end phone.
