AT&T (T) will announce its support for Nokia's (NOK) flagship Lumia 920 phone today, sources tell Bloomberg.  The Windows Phone 8 device, which received an underwhelming response from investors when announced last month, is expected to go on sale in early November. Its steep unsubsidized pricing has raised some eyebrows.

  • Are we really expecting more news?


    I think it may just be a carrier announcement which seems dumb because why wouldn't T do it?

  • Agreed, was very disappointed in the iPhone 5.


    Looking forward to the Lumia 920 on AT&T. My 900 is fantastic, and expect the 920 to be much better...especially with the PureView camera.

  • Folks might be "expecting more" because the full WP8 OS has not been released to the public yet. I'm personally not expecting more fireworks. Just have to decide which color 920 to get.

  • It seems like neither Verizon will as well.
    But i thought Verizon is holding plans to sell Lumia 920 few weeks ago?

  • Verizon I believe still is planning to release the 920, however due to exclusivity agreements between Nok and ATT (stupidest thing I've ever heard of) Verizon probably won't be able to release it in 2012.


    That was what I heard anyway... so don't bet money on it as it could have been a wild rumor.

  • The marking is on the wall for Verizon, they will be selling the L822 & L922 on the CDMA side not sure about T but they were on the list before.

  • I hope it's a pre-order / price-with-contract announcement. I'm leaving T-Mobile for this one on AT&T.

  • I want one to. However, I will wait for you guys to do the early adoption and get back to us with the pro's and con's.


    Even though I am an AT&T guy, it would be great to see one on Verizon as well since I have areas that are pretty spotty with my service (I think my S2 is better than my S3 for signal as well).


    I am hoping the Lumia has superior reception and phone functions as my previous Nokia's did.

  • I'm still amazed to hear that investors were underwhelmed with the Lumia 920. It is a clearly superior phone to the just-now-playing-catchup iPhone 5. What did they expect it to do? Chew their food for them?


    I'm going to be buying a 920 as soon as they are available and I know I won't be alone.

  • The 920 is by a wide margin, the most advanced mobile phone coming on to the market. Samsung have nothing, HTC have nothing and Apple have nothing to match it. Having said that, it doesn't mean it'll be a success and Windows Phone is still a huge risk for Nokia.

  • Marketing is one of the main pillars of success if you can't market you can't sell/attract buyers. MSFT/NOK need a new marketing department. Seriously clean house and hire someone who has a different idea of marketing (seriously anything other than what they have been doing).

    I don't believe "investors were underwhelmed," I think that was analyst jibber jabber. The reviews for the phone were very good, the disappointment came when no price or availability were announced.

  • It's funny how Bloomberg put a negative spin on the article "UNDERWHELMING RESPONSE" where polls & market research datas are coming up with Overwhelming Response.

  • My old HTC aria was better than the iPhone 5. I traded for the cyan lumia 900. This is such a fabulous phone. I could use it for 10 years and it won't go out of style. I'm just baffled by these analysts. I want the L920 haven't decided on the color.
