Video from Nokia leaks hitherto unseen variant

A video from Finnish phonemaker Nokia Oyj. (OMX:NOK1V) seemingly leaks news that the Lumia 920 will be available in Cyan.

We already know that the Lumia 920 -- the Lumia 900's Windows Phone 8 successor -- is coming to Verizon in a variety of colors, including a cherry red:

What was unknown/uncertain was whether there'd also be a cyan (a bluish color, for the color-challenged) variant.  That was a hot question, given that the Cyan version of the Lumia 900 has by far sold the best on AT&T, Inc. (T).

A new video seemingly leaks the answer to that query -- yes.  Here's a screen grab from 0:38 which shows a cyan Lumia against a background of yellow squares.

The current video has been "fixed" to remove the leak...

...with a yellow Lumia 920 appearing at that point.  However, numerous commenters noted the Cyan's appearance before it disappeared.

It's a fair hypothesis that the cyan version will be exclusive to AT&T, while the cherry red will be exclusive to Verizon (get it, "Big Red" gets a red Lumia 920, blue-logoed "Ma Bell" gets a cyan?).  Support for this hypothesis comes from AT&T's confirmation that it will be carrying new Windows Phone 8 handsets on Nov. 2.

Why not indigo/"dark blue"?

Between cyan and the dark gray I'd probably have to go with the latter. I have to admit being intrigued by the bright yellow model, but I think I'd grow to dislike it over time.

I like the yellow it would be easier to find when your trying to get out the door.

I think that is the primary reason for 'covers' so you can easily change the color of your phone. If you are locked into a banana phone, after a short time you will be longing for something different.
