Nokia admits mistake on its website relating to the Nokia Lumia 920
Those who have perused Nokia's web site might have noticed that it says that the Nokia Lumia 920, the upcoming Windows Phone 8 flagship model, supports the AWS 1700MHz band. That might have excited some of you out there who were daydreaming about taking an unlocked model of the phone and running it over T-Mobile's unlimited network.

Nokia has incorrectly listed the AWS 1700MHz band as compatible with the Nokia Lumia 920

Nokia has incorrectly listed the AWS 1700MHz band as compatible with the Nokia Lumia 920

The sad part of daydreams is that they are just 'dreams'. It turns out that the WCDMA band listing was an error on Nokia's part. The Finnish based manufacturer wouldn't make back in sales enough moola to make it worth spending the cash on outfitting the phone to work on that band. T-Mobile customers interested in Windows Phone 8 could always turn to the Nokia Lumia 810 or the HTC Windows Phone 8X. Or, you could wait until the 1900MHz PCS is refarmed in your area, but who knows when that will happen?

The correct information for the Nokia Lumia 920 should read as follows: U.S. Version GSM/EGSM 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100, LTE 1700/2100 (4), 700 (17). International and unlocked version GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900, WCDMA: 2100, 1900, 850, 900, LTE: 2100, 1800, 2600, 900, 800.

Nokia has admitted the mistake and said it would change the website.

The good thing is that you can work LTE in Australia, then move to the US and continue using the LTE (cept T-mob)

Something he probably could have used to go to school instead. Still cheaper than an iPhone.

iPhone 5 itself is a big mistake and it costs more than LM 920.

- failure maps
- failure camera (problems with light source)
- scratchy (premium) material used in it
- about 4 other reported problems
- Apples style to explain all problems as features or "you are holding it wrong" or " you are aiming it wrong".

At least Noka always agrees problems and handles them correctly.

Just when ya thought you were gonna be able to escape the midrange lineup of tmobile phones. Nope. I hate exclusivity contracts. They hurt consumers and manufacturers alike. The ONE X could have done great on Verizon and others. And the same will go with this phone.

Yeah, I never really thought exclusive deals were the best idea. I'm sure companies have their reasons (money) but, in the long run exclusive deal seem to come at the expense of sales (money) so it doen't really seem to pay off. I don't really know how it works though so maybe it does but, I would think that you would want your phone on as many carriers as possible considering that the competition (iPhone/SG3) has made their phones available on just about every major carrier. Just sayin'.

Nokia trying to role model after the first iPhone. They should know this is not back in the day. And you would think they learned a thong or two from the L900. By the way, did it even pass the million mark?
