AT&T confirm Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 availability

Published by at

AT&T has officially announced that it will be ranging the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 from November. The Lumia 920 will be exclusive to AT&T and will be available in black, red, white, yellow and cyan. The Lumia 820, which is not exclusive to AT&T, will only be available in black, but AT&T stores will be stocking the removable coloured shell accessories.

While no exact availability date or pricing has been announced, both devices will support LTE on AT&T's network. This means support for bands IV (1700/2100) and XVII (700) will be included, necessitating US-specific variants.

The two Lumia devices will join the already announced LTE version of the HTC 8X as the launch Windows Phone 8 devices on AT&T.
