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.

Wow, looks like WP8 pwned iOS and Android camera quality wise. Totally unexpected. I doubt iPhone 5 will change this but we'll see in a week or so.

Looks like Ballmer was right when he put his bet on Nokia and not on some generic cookie cutter Android OEM like Samsung.

I agree. At the very least there is something else on the market that is different, original, and well executed. Can't say the same for companies out there like Samsung making their iPhone copies.
