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.

Great news for HTC

I had made up my mind to buy a Lumia 920 on Verizon. Nokia is now off the table for me. Luckily HTC has done an oustanding job at designing the new 8X. This is a major and well-deserved boost to HTC.

Yeah. Im dissapointed myself. I wanted to check it out. I bought the ip5 off contract to replace a dunked phone and I was going to give it to my daughter when the 920 hit. I want the camera and the screen I can use with my riding gloves on. My only concern was the size of that brick. The HTC looks great but doesnt have the same cool screen. DAMMIT!
