AT&T to launch the Nokia Lumia 925 next month?
The version of the Nokia Lumia 925 to be offered by the nation's second largest carrier will be the black variant and will be priced at $99.99 with a signed two-year pact. Right now, the Nokia Lumia 920 is priced by AT&T at $99.99 on contract, so the price of the former flagship (and another Nokia AT&T exclusive in the U.S.) will most likely be surgically slimmed down to $49.99 on contract. After the launch, AT&T can satisfy those seeking high-end Lumia models (Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia Lumia 925, Nokia Lumia 920) and those who want a Lumia model but are on a budget (the red hot Nokia Lumia 520)
The Nokia Lumia 925 has a slim body made of aluminum with a back made of polycarbonate. The phone launches with the GDR2/Amber update already installed out of the box which means goodies like Data Sense so you know which apps are using your monthly data allowance, an FM radio, always-on clock and the two-taps to awaken feature among others.
The 4.5 inch 768 x 1280 resolution AMOLED screen results in pixel density of 334 ppi. A dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus processor is under the hood while the Adreno 225 GPU takes care of graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board and there is 16GB of native storage, but no microSD slot available. The rear-facing 8.7MP shooter has an aperture of f/2.0, a setting that allows the camera to take viewable snapshots in low-light conditions. Videos are captured in 1080 x 1920 at 30fps. There is a front-facing 1.2MP snapper aboard and a 2000mAh battery keeps the lights on.
UPDATE: Now that the Nokia Lumia 920 has been cut to $49.99 at AT&T, it certainly looks like the Nokia Lumia 925 will be coming to AT&T, perhaps even sooner than mid September.

720 is mid range, 820/810/822 is mid-high, 920/925/928/1020 are high-end, with 1020 being even higher due to camera and more RAM.

u didn't get it dude.........just wait and watch u will know it why 925 will gonna be Mid range. ok i tell u why.
because 925 will announce in at&t before or after the next nokia's 1080p and quad core phone that mean this 1080p and quad core nokia phone will announce in at&t as high end and 925 will turn in mid range with this high end nokia phone.

True, and that would have been useful to include on your original comment, but for the next 2-4 months it will remain high-end, then be reclassified mid-high, or the new class will be high-high end.

I'm getting sick and tired of hearing AT&T getting all of these phones. Why aren't the other carriers making any effort on picking up more devices in their portfolios?

Agreed.. As it stands, if you want the best selection oh phones att seems to have it.

And yet, Verizon continues to outsell them in all device selections except the iPhone, which AT&T still outsells all carriers. Apparently, device selction only goes so far.

Cause they are not interested on this failing platform and brand™
It won't sell well
Nokia's days are gone, done and dusted
Consumers want, need the old-skool Nokia back. Not NokiaWp7,8 fragments

Wait for the GDR3 update to roll out, the new Lumia's will probably have Quadcore and 1080p screens, so they should be more future proof.
Not that I'm complaning about my Lumia 920, I absolutely love it.

6. Wiki_jaan (Posts: 703; Member since: 24 Jun 2012)
........ i think they fear of samsung
but still hoping for nokia android

Really then why isn't NokiaWp8 outselling Android and iOS?
It's not BS™ it's the truth hardcore NokiaFanboy, living in denial hey. The truth you don't like to hear!
Even Nokia Android won't help Nokia! Nokia is POS™ now. Along with BB.
There high end phones couldn't sell let alone selling Android Nokia, joke.
Nothing won't help them! Nokia are are connecting company which they rely using last years outdated specs. Even in there adds they only concentrate on software side along with great camera. Consumers don't give a toss about that.
It's specs what consumers demand not that Pos™ that Nokia provides, just like BB.

Because the Android market is to flooded.. And the WP OS fits Androids idea of quality VS the many negative issues that Android has... WP Just simply works very well without tinkering... WP is suited for the everyday user..

No for the newbies and typical dum stupid users who are not techy, saavy, and smart. It's just another iPhone wanabe, but with more AA class security prison services, which there will be absolutely no options for Devs, Roots, Roms, Jailbreak, ....... It's called a platform with no open source options
Enjoy using what has been told by NokiaWp8 you can have and can't

Look, only a fool wouldn't say Samsung's huge shadow didn't influence Nokia's decision. But so did MS offering 250,000,000 dollars a quarter for 5 years to devlop WP....
I call that good stragety on Nokia's part.
"Ummm... they are offering HOW much? I love Live tiles, we are IN!!"

To make the best smartphones in the world (Nokia), you have to use the best smartphone OS in the world (Windows Phone). Android isn't it.

Seems strange only in that T-Mobile has been a great WP supporter as well and this would seem to cut the legs out from under them.
This is a great device. A tad more comfortable in the hand and a slightly better look in my opinion. But, if memory serves (always iffy with me) it's camera tech isn't as nice, not taking as good low light shots.
It truly is a gnats' hairs difference from the 920 to the 925. But makes for a nice set of choices with the low end 520, amazing 1020, and the HTC 8X tossed in for color. First time in the history of WP that someone interested in the OS can say they have nearly as much choice as Android fans have on a carrier.

I have a 925, and there's a bit more than a gnat's hair's difference. They both feel.great, but the 925 feels nicer for its thinness and lightness, but the 920 feels more ergonomic with its rounded back. The 925 gets the sixth lens and Catwalk-ready figure, the 920 gets built-in wireless charging and more built-in memory.

Fascinating. If true, it explains why T-Mobile only got the white model.
