Neither Bell Canada nor Telus will carry the Lumia 920, Rogers may be exclusive

Neither Bell Canada nor Telus will carry the Lumia 920, Rogers may be exclusive
The carriers’ responses to a couple of customer inquiries about the next flagship device from Nokia revealed that the Lumia 920 is not in their plans.

TELUS was arguably a little cryptic, stating that “The Nokia 920 is not part of the list of phones coming to TELUS by the end of the year.” That could mean that a Nokia Windows Phone 8 will find a place in their stable next year. The Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 610 have been part of their line-up, so hopefully a relationship will remain between the carrier and the Finnish manufacturer.

Bell Canada does indeed plan on offering two Windows Phone 8 devices, but neither of them will be the Lumia 920. The devices have not been announced by Bell yet, but there are not so many choices to pick from. As Bell does not currently offer any Huawei devices in their line-up, we are pretty comfortable setting the expectation that they will offer the Samsung ATIV S and one of the HTC 8 devices.

That leaves Rogers, and Canada’s largest carrier has not yet announced if the new Lumias will be offered. Since they do sell the Lumia 900, one would hope that the 920 will follow later this year.

If any of our Canadian readers get any tips about the new Nokia Lumias being offered by the carriers there, let us know!
