Cyan Lumia 920 is indeed in the works, along with other colors; Lumia 820 will only be available in black

AT&T, Inc. (T), America's second largest carrier, has re-upped its commitment to Nokia Oyj. (HEX:NOK1Vannouncing that for the fall it would be the only carrier in the U.S. to receive the company's top-of-the-line Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 handset.

An official launch date was not announced other than "November" -- but previous leaks point to a Nov. 2 landing.

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, and built-in wireless charging using the Qi wireless standard.  

A teaser video hinted that a Cyan Lumia 920 was incoming, and indeed the AT&T press release says the phone will be available in "red, white, black, yellow, and cyan".

AT&T announced that the second-rung Lumia 820 would also be coming to its network. But if you're in the mood for the Lumia 820, hopefully your favorite color is black, because that is the only color that handset will be carried in, for now.

Olivier Puech, president of Nokia Americas, cheered the pickup, stating, "We welcome AT&T's decision to offer the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820, which, when added to what we've witnessed in other markets, underscores the momentum behind our Lumia devices and the broader Windows ecosystem.  Our continued collaboration with AT&T is an important component for Nokia's success in the U.S. market."

Indeed, the partnership has proved mutually beneficial giving Nokia a hint of life and give AT&T a fallback now that its period of exclusivity for the Apple, Inc. (AAPL) iPhone is over.  Sales of the Cyan Lumia 900, the Lumia 920's "Mango" OS predecessor have been brisk, with the handset typically being out of stock earlier this year.

However, the exclusivity agreement may draw ire from customers and investors alike, as it inherently limits sales of the handset in the U.S. at a time when Nokia desperately needs to prove its Windows Phones can hold their own with the iPhone and Android.

Do you really think Windows Phone market share is going to grow? Lol. It's on version 8. EIGHT. And still nobody buys it. How many versions do you need before you realize that a turd is a turd, no matter how much you polish it.

Other little whiny dicks like you were bitching same shit about Xbox a few years ago, so don't yet count WP8 off. I found that it indeed crossed off items from my required feature list and finally became on par with Android and iOS feature wise. The only thing it lacks is some native 3D games from iOS/Android and really nice screens like in Galaxy Note. The rest is there. Even the screen size issue is not that horrible given that ATIV S sports 4.8" screen which is very close to ideal size of 5.5" I don't see reasons why WP8 won't take off given that a) Nokia is really pushing the bar higher now with some slick stuff that iOS and/or Android don't have and b) MS is bringing out its own high end WP8 phone next year, to make the platform even more appealing.

So maybe you should plug your hole and wait for a while before you start whining and bitching again?

Damn not for me. I dont want that in my pocket and I sure dont want to be seen holding it up to my face talking on it. These giant phablets or whatever are not for everyone. How the hell to you exercise with a 5.5 inch phone in your pocket?
