AT&T announced today that it will be adding the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 smartphones to its network in November. The devices both run the new Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system, with AT&T noting that it has sold more Windows Phone devices than any other carrier. The Nokia Lumia 920 features a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 4.5-inch touchscreen display, 4G LTE, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera that records 1080p HD video, a front-facing camera that records in 720p HD, wireless charging, augmented reality for maps and more. The Lumia 820 is almost equally as impressive.
“Exclusive to our customers and featuring unique innovations in imaging technology, wireless charging and a bright, sensitive display – all on the nation’s largest 4G network – the Lumia 920 will be one of the hottest phones for the holidays,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices and Developer Services, AT&T Mobility.
“We welcome AT&T’s decision to offer the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820, which, when added to what we’ve witnessed in other markets, underscores the momentum behind our Lumia devices and the broader Windows ecosystem,” said Olivier Puech, president of Nokia Americas. “Our continued collaboration with AT&T is an important component for Nokia’s success in the U.S. market.”
Nokia’s Lumia 820 is a mid-range smartphone that has a similar unibody design to the Lumia 920 with a removable shell design that allows you to change the color of the device. The Lumia 820 sports a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch display, 8-megapixel camera, 4G LTE and an option for wireless charging. The Lumia 820 is Nokia’s first Windows Phone-powered smartphone to embed a microSD slot. Detailed availability and pricing information has not been made available.
