Nokia to market Lumia smartphones directly this Holiday season

No, the arching contraption you see in the photo below isn't a time machine, nor a high-tech tanning booth. It is a flashy display stand, the kinds of which Nokia has been using across Europe and other parts of the world to promote its phones. They can usually be seen in shopping malls, with sales assistants around them ready to give answers to your burning questions about Nokia hardware.
"But wait, how come I haven't seen these before?", you say. Well, the thing is that Nokia has rarely used them in the U.S.
"motivated and outgoing candidates with previous retail sales experience". The campaign will begin on November 12 and will run until December 31, right in time for the holiday shopping spree.
Now, it isn't exactly clear which U.S. markets Nokia will be targeting with its campaign, but it is certain that Queens Center Mall in New York City is on the list. In case you happen to spot one of the Nokia arcs in your local mall as well, do not hesitate to let us know!

Yeah it will after 3 months or so. Heck it will be days before SPRING comes before this phone hits Verizon. What is going to happen is that the Samsung ATIV S will come out & take all the would be Nokia Lumia 920 buyers. This HOLIDAY season people should be looking at the Nokia Lumia 920 for Verizon, BUT instead they will see the VERY nice may I add Samsung ATIV S & go that route because of Microsoft & Nokia dumba$$ move. With the exclusivity deal they have with AT&T, BOTH Microsoft with their WP8 & Nokia with their Lumia 920 will lose millions of sales. I really am starting to think that Nokia wants to go out of business because they are making choices that make me scratch my head. Simple equation. If you want to sell your best phone then RELEASE it for every carrier POSSIBLE not just ONE, ESPECIALLY during the HOLIDAY season.

Every manufacturer does it where I live. HTC did it with their One X, Sammy with S3, Nokia with 808 hopefully Nokia does this in India as well. And yes, all of this is just a stone's throw away from where I live.

That's right.. have seen such campaigns from Sammy, Nokia, Sony and HTC here. Hoping that they release 920 in India in Nov, at good price *__*

All on R&D? Will people buy devices when they don't know about them? 4 of my friends brought a Sammy instead of a One s/Xperia S thanks to the promotions/adverts Sammy is showing. The other two may be better than S2 but not many know about them.

Market all you want but ain't any good if only available on ATT. And only a small handful of tech geeks will spend that $1000 on an unlocked L920. Frankly starting to hate the name Lumia and more intrigued with Surface.
