Nokia aiming for November 2nd AT&T launch of the Lumia 920

Multiple tipsters point to an early November launch for the Lumia 920, although with Microsoft still finalizing WP8 Nokia must make a rapid turnaround to hit that date...

With this much limitations, restrictions and pseudo-multitasking, it's easy to make an os run smooth.
Oh, how many tries will it take MS to make WP as functional as Android?

Tell me, what an android can do that a windows phone can't that actually matters,the only thing I can think of is the apps
besides that these limitations that you speak don't make much of a difference

GNex is multi-core. It shouldn't have taken this long to get Android so smooth

Always fun to see how people turn to ridicule and defensive bashing when they know they have no real case. SleepingOz provides a great example of such here, with just a childish taunt in place of any actual arguments.

You see, I'm not the only one who thinks the same.

Who says I don't have arguments? 19.

And am I the one on the defensive? Bashing again? Really? As I already asked your bf, can you please quote the part where I'm bashing this phone?

"And please Nokia, next time you reveal a phone that basically crushes anything currently on the market, launch it like you mean it. Those low confidence, monitor reading presenters did not do the product justice."

Don't forget the fraudulent videos and photos that were offered up as having been taken with the Lumia 920 that turned out to not have been taken with the 920.

The other problem Nokia and MS have is that competing products (iPhone for example) will have been selling for at least a month and a half before you start to sell your toy(s). On VZW, AT&T and Sprint (and others in the example of the GS III). If the objective is to maximize customer opportunity, not getting your toys available on other networks is a serious f*ck-up. Android got a huge boost by VZW pushing it as an alternative to the iPhone....

Fraud would be if they explicity stated the images were taken with a production unit. They never stated that. Did they mislead by omission? Arguably, but no more than apple does with its commercials ("Screen images simulated. Sequences shortened" is a cop-out, and they fail to mentoin that the equivalent features are available on other platforms, just not the proprietary program they came up with) or verizon does with its droid commercials ("Droid Does Everything", no, it doesn't do EVERYTHING, but it does more than ios)

What is fraudulent about a disclaimer that screen images are simulated? All Nokia had to do was put in a disclaimer and the issue would not have occurred. When does ANY manufacturer mention that similar features are available from competitors?

I suspect that when the third-party reviews are in, the 920's camera will be an incremental improvement over competitors. Unfortunately, the dramatic potential of the PureView 808's 42 Gb camera will be a lost opportunity. Meanwhile, the Nokia fans are left to be defensive over criticism of their darling.

There is a reason why the market whacked Nokia's share price after the announcement. Actually, more like 3 reasons - 1.) No announced ship date, 2.) No announced sell price, and 3.) The problems with the roll-out.

Thanks for posting the link (really). My net takeaway (even after reading the link) is that the Lumia 920 is still a combined (MS + Nokia) work-in-progress.

I hope they are able to pull it off. The potential of the PureView 808 was (as others have noted) stunning.

Nokia should launch a version for Verizon.

Verizon seems to be getting the 820. Hopefully, HTC is releasing a serious top end device because that is the rumored flagship WP8 at launch.

But the 820 is the red-haired half-sibling of the 920. It seems like Nokia is losing yet another opportunity to leverage the VZW customer base.

Would be nice have the best screen and the best camera without change from carrier, and lots of people thinks the same. Or launch a version for each carrier.

Having the same (or nearly so in the case of T-Mo) specs across carriers is one reason why the GS III has sold 20 million units in its first 100 days....

Nokia could learn a lesson from the GS III roll-out.

totally agree with Veigald, Why nokia cant show their phones and at the same time, start the pre order like apple does. i really liked the phone and probably will get one, but most of for my second phone and not the primary since already have an android and considering they still not that many apps on WP i would lose lot if decide to get WP as my primary phone. anyway, NOKIA please next time, whenever you announce your products do it when you already have your product ready to ship and not 2, 3 or 8 months before.... DOESNT MAKE SENSE!

You can hack it and install different stuff on there, but as a Lumia 900 owner, I've never felt the inclination to do so, whereas on my G2 and Sensation 4G I always had an itch to modify stuff because it wasn't up to my standards or felt incomplete or rough

Nokia has always been impressive on hardware. They only failed on software and did not keep up with the development
