Rogers Nokia Lumia 920 now available in Red and White

Last week Rogers announced plans to release the Nokia Lumia 920 in red, white and yellow “in the coming weeks.” For eager Windows Phone 8 users Rogers opened up their online reservation system. Perhaps the press release should have said “in the coming days” as the Red and White version are now available for sale. The price points are the same at $99.99 on a 3-year and $599.99 month-to-month.

Finally, our source has informed us that the Lumia 920 is selling well, but initial inventory of the new colours is really low – a total of 4,000 White versions and 1,000 Red versions. Curious where the yellow version is? Well, this will hit stores sometime in February.

    600 outright? How generous of you Honorable Rogers you have made me save face as I can know buy groceries for my family as well as look cool to my IT colleagues by using a Windows8 phone.

      $600 for a phone much better than the $700 iPhone or $650 GS3 sounds like a deal to me!

    • Henry

      That’s low for a flagship phone to buy it outright

  • Dan S

    I had a Nokia Lumia 920 for about a week. It’s a brick of a phone. Can be used as a lethal weapon…lol.

    • Frederick Edwards

      I live in Winnipeg so having a bulletproof device that doubles as a weapon comes in handy.

    Youre dumb. Any smartphone with high specks released in the previous months is going to amount to a 600 or higher buy out. Windows phones are selling faster and faster lately and you dont have to be techy in order to like it. If you want a reliable, up to date phone that has all the bells and whistle with an easy lay out. If not than get something else but youll still be shelling out 600.

    • Just sayin

      Not the Nexus 4! 😉

      Keep in mind that the 920’s $450 outright on AT&T in the states right now.

    Why is the inventory so low? Nokia can’t make enough phones? I have windows 8 system on my pc computer but I now want lumia phone to replace my iphone 3gs.

    I have saved $75 so far to buy this phone, I need $600 dollars more. Right now I just have enough money to buy case and screen protector.

      My understanding is that certain colours are next to impossible to make with polycarbonate casing.

  • Miknitro

    I’m not a WP user or fan, but that Nokia looks great in red.

  • David Allan

    I like the phone but I dislike Rogers. This company is the biggest scam in human history!

  • Patrick

    I’m an Android fan, but WP looks more and more appealing to me. Should I switch? Anybody made de move?

    • Gsizzle

      How about going to your nearest rogers store and play around with one?

    • Critical

      I went to WP8 because I wanted a smooth, easy to use interface. I primarily use my phone as a phone so I don’t care much for apps.

      I’ve had no issues with the OS so far and really like how quick it is.

      As for Rogers opening a box to let you play with one, don’t bother. they’re cheap and won’t do it. Go to a 3rd party retailer on comission, they’ll do anything to make a sale.

    • Patrick

      I have tried one at a Rogers store, twice even, but its not five or 10 minutes with a phone that will help to make my mind…

  • jjj

    So wait until February for a yellow 920 then watch Nokia unveil all their new phones at MWC a few days later…fricken ridiculous.

    • swizzlerz

      nokia usualy releases new phones a nokia world in the fall.

  • CAR

    I reserved the Red one so hopefully I receive notification soon that it’s at the store I chose for pick-up.

  • cayote

    No yellow yet? Rogers is moron when it comes to color offering.

  • Bryce

    When will other carriers start carrying the new Lumias! Why is Rogers still the only one in Canada to have a 920! Why is there no 820 at all in Canada! God, anyone but Rogers, SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

  • Mark

    Wow this is great news! I won’t give my money to Rogers but I’m really excited to go see the device in a store

  • CAR

    Does anyone know if these new Lumia’s will come with the Portico update already installed?

  • Gurnishan

    will these new colours be available at the microsoft store at yorkdale last time i went they had a few different verisions of 8x and only the black 920, i want to see how the gloss finish looks and feels like compared to the matte.
