Bloomberg: Nokia Lumia 920 to be introduced Thursday by AT&T
According to a report from Bloomberg, AT&T on Thursday will introduce the Windows Phone 8 flagship Nokia Lumia 920. It's part of an event that the carrier is holding to show off a number of new handsets besides its new Nokia branded Windows Phone 8 model. According to the report, while the Nokia Lumia 920 will be one of the new phones on display, it will not be ready to be launched immediately according to the two inside sources that spoke to Bloomberg about the carrier's plan for the model. Even though the phone won't launch immediately, the Nokia Lumia 920 is scheduled to be the first Windows Phone 8 model to be released in the United States.

The square-cornered Nokia Lumia 920 is equipped with a 4.5 inch LCD display with resolution of 768 x 1280 which gives users an outstanding pixel density of 332ppi. A dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 is under the hood. The Adreno 225 crunches the graphics and there is 1GB of RAM on board. The rear-facing 8.7MP camera has a dual flash and captures video in 1080p at 30fps. A 1.3MP front-facing shooter allows you to take self-portraits. A 2000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and of course Windows Phone 8 is installed.

It's unknown whether AT&T will announce pricing and a specific launch date tomorrow. Nokia is hoping that with many of the hardware restrictions seen in Windows Phone 7 now removed in Windows Phone 8, the handset manufacturer will be able to compete with the Android platform's multi-core processors and larger screen sizes.

Those colors look too off for my tastes. I like to keep it simple.

wow!! cant wait for it!! it should be on plan lower than the iPhone and S3/oneX!!!!

i hope the same approach of lumia 900!!! coz WP is still building momentum on its own! and if they go high-end i dont think it will sell really hot.. it will sell but not fast!

why? WP's ecosystem is still growing and remeber that it is still not open to all devs... only on selected people! and i dont know if the WP7 apps will work on WP8..coz i think the reason that WP8 SDK isnt available to all devs is that MS is still trying to figure out how will WP7 apps to work on WP8!! or else they'll start again... and the 100,000+ apps will be worthless!

Everything I have read is that WP7 apps will work with WP8 fine.. I don't think that will be a problem at all. At minimum they will have to port them, and since the GUI is the same, that shouldn't be very difficult.

i've read here before in PA that it might be that microsoft is trying to figure out how to port WP7 apps to WP8.. coz again like from WinMo to WP- WinMo apps dont work on WP7 coz its different kernel... so i hope im wrong but since WP8 is a new kernel- different from WP7- microsoft's still working about this!

here's the link!

Ahh.. they listen to the customer..? Doubt it. I think its because all the money they made on being the iPhone exclusive vendor so they are willing to pay out to the big companies for exclusive rights. I know T-mobile has a habit of not wanting to play ball with phone manufacturers. I Heard the DVP was supposed to be AT Tmo but they backed out leaving Dell having to try to sell the phone online, thats why they came up with a AT&T version later in the hopes of convincing AT&T To sell it. When they wouldn't they cut their losses. Hopefully one day, T-mobile will change their tune.. but I doubt it.

They want that cheap Image but it not working to their advantage. For some, they just don't learn their lesson.
