Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Launched in Australia

On Thursday, Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia unveiled plans to have its newly announced Windows Phone 8-based Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 available for purchase in Australia through various wireless carriers and retailers in the country.

The company confirmed that the flagship Lumia 920 would be released on Telstra’s network, and that Vodafone and Optus would add the new Lumia 820 to their offerings. Both Windows Phone 8 handsets would be made available for purchase through various retailers in the country, the handset vendor also announced. "Operators and retailers are throwing their weight behind our new Nokia Lumia smartphones and we appreciate their continued support,” Nokia Australia's Managing Director, Steve Lewis, said. "So many consumers and businesses have already made the switch to Nokia Lumia and with the new range, we believe many more will follow suit. The industry tide is turning and that's good news for us, Microsoft and our partners.” Telstra’s users will be able to enjoy the capabilities of Lumia 920 on the wireless carrier’s 4G LTE network. They will benefit from leading camera capabilities, along with great performance levels, courtesy of the included 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor.

“The camera takes in five times more light than competing smartphones without using flash so the user can capture clear, bright pictures and video indoors and at night. It also compensates for hand movement while the photo is being taken,” Nokia explains. The handset also sports a large touchscreen display, as well as powerful mapping and navigation capabilities, courtesy of applications such as Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive and Nokia City Lens. Vodafone and Optus users will enjoy the functionality of Lumia 820, a powerful mid-range device that sports a compact design and enhanced personalization options via exchangeable shells. “Exchangeable shells not only make it possible to select from a range of colours, but also to add wireless charging. Beneath the shell is room to insert a micro SD memory card,” Nokia explains.

Both smartphones are 4G-capable and will be released in color flavors such as yellow, red, grey, white and black. No pricing has been provided as of yet, nor specific info on when they are set to land on shelves, but Nokia promised these details for the end of October.
