Rogers announced today that the Nokia Lumia 920 will be available tomorrow (October 30th). This is great news for us Canadians as it seems we’re the first country in the world to launch this Windows Phone 8 device. Various European countries will welcome this LTE-enabled device this weekend. The prices have been set at $99.99 on a 3-year and $549.99 on a month-to-month plan.
Rogers is selling the Lumia 920 only in black and there’s been rumours that TELUS might launch a new colour. Rogers has some sort of exclusivity in place, but the duration is unknown. Adding to speculation is Microsoft Canada by noting on their site that the 920 will be coming to “Rogers Wireless and others.” No word on who Microsoft thinks the “others” are but they show all the other beautiful colour options (cyan, yellow, red, white).
Update: Well, looks like the “and others” was an error by Microsoft. The bubble has been popped. We’ve received the following statement from Microsoft: “Hello. We noticed on your blog post that wrote about the Microsoft Canada website noting the Nokia Lumia 920 will be available to “Rogers Wireless and others.” This is an error and Microsoft Canada is in the process of fixing their website. The Nokia Lumia 920 is exclusive to Rogers. Thank you.”
