The Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 show a November 1st launch date in Germany

MediaMarkt, Germany's biggest retailer has put up a November 1st launch date on its website for the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820. Priced at 649 EUR ($840 USD) and 449 EUR ($582 USD) respectively (which include taxes), the launch date would make sense coming just days after the October 29th introduction of the Windows Phone 8 operating system.

Of course, a German launch date of November 1st for the new Windows Phone 8 Nokia models might translate into a different release date in the states. On Friday, a leaked T-Mobile roadmap revealed an November 14th launch date for the HTC Windows Phone 8X. So far, we don't have an official or unofficial launch date for the Samsung ATIV S.

MediaMarkt is accepting pre-orders for both the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 on its website. You can access it by clicking on the sourcelink below.

Difficult to make a big impact if earlier Lumiia with mango/tango was any indication and whatever market Nokia has remaining will be wiped clean by direct entry of M$ with their own phone as M$ can offer any discounts to grab an order in corporate segment.

$840 is too high for a company trying to make a comeback.

it wont be that high in the us, its just that the dollar is wery weak right now and the exchange rate havnt really updated in the last 10 years or so.. the price usally follow the american market. for example this device will probably go for 648USD, and 649EUR, and in my case 6490SEK (im swedish). if the world was fair it would be like 648USD = 500EUR = 4,337SEK if they would follow the swedish market the pricing would be like this, 6490SEK = 710EUR = 919USD. so congrats to all americans you rule the world.. well maybe not, but atleast you get your phones for a decent price ;)

currently owning a lumia 800 and 16gb is enough for me

I said the screen is better, design is subjective, beats well you know it s**ks and battery life on HTC is horrible. It doesn't have Nokia's exclusive apps, Nokia support, Super Sensitive screen, etc.

Please note, the sales tax in Germany is 19%, so the Lumia 920 is €545 ($700) + tax, while the 820 is €380 ($500) + tax @ Media Markt (Germany's Best Buy). Still, the 920 must not be more expensive than the S3 if they want it to be successful. On that note, the lowest price I could find is €500 ($650) + tax for the 920, while the 32GB S3 goes for €470 ($610) + tax (geizhals.eu). Close enough for a pre-order price. What matters is operator pricing, though...
