Nokia to start shipping Windows Phone 8 Lumia 920 at the beginning of November

Nokia will start shipping the Lumia 920 handset in November, according to Reuters. Citing an unnamed executive at a European mobile operator as a source, Reuters claim sales of the Lumia 920 will start in the second half of November, with larger European countries getting the device at the beginning of the month. This goes against the widespread rumour that suggested that the first Lumia devices with Windows Phone 8 would be available in October.
The Nokia Lumia 920 was announced earlier this week in New York, alongside its lesser sibling the Lumia 820, making the two devices Nokia's first Windows Phone 8 offering. The high-end device boasts of Pureview camera technology, a 4.5in PureMotion HD+ display and the ability to be charged wirelessly. Other specifications include a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, integrated NFC, 4G LTE but lacks microSD memory support. There has been no word yet as to when Nokia will start shipping the Nokia Lumia 820 will be available but it's expected to appear later this year too.
We find it strange that Nokia seemed to be in such a hurry to unveil it's devices yet they wont be available for the better part of two months. Samsung recently revealed that they shifted 20 million Galaxy SIII smartphone and will continue to provide stiff competition fro the Lumia 920 despite being a fair few months older. Also, you can be guaranteed that Apple will make the impending iPhone 5 available within days of it's unveiling. We fear Nokia will live to regret these unwise decisions.
