Nokia seems to trying hard to make sure that its latest flagship
smartphone Lumia 920 is able to make a mark. According to Engadget,
Nokia will be selling Lumia 920 in US for $450 without any contract.
This price is $100 less than Samsung's flagship device Samsung Galaxy S
III and $200 less than Apple's iPhone 5.
AT&T, which is the second
largest telecom operator in US has also announced that it will be sell
the Nokia Lumia 820 for $49.99 and the Lumia 920 phone for $99.99 to
customers who sign a two-year wireless contract. While, the other
Windows Phone 8 smartphone - HTC 8X is selling for $199.99 with a two
year contract. (For more details read: Nokia Lumia 920 gets price

It's no secret
that Nokia is banking on its Window Phone 8 strategy to make a comeback
in the smartphone segment and the company is leaving no stones unturned
to make sure that Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 are a success.
Lumia 920 comes with 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display, Wireless charging
support and 2000 mAh battery. Nokia Lumia 820 on the other hand is a
mid-range Windows Phone 8 smartphone. It has a 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4
dual-core processor, 4.3-inch Clearblack display, 8GB of internal
storage and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
Nokia has already
announced that its flagship Nokia Lumia 920 will be available in India
starting November but has not shared the pricing of the same. After
seeing the aggressive pricing strategy being adopted by the Finnish
handset maker in US, one can hope that Nokia may try to adopt the same
tactic in India too.
While it's always tricky translating prices
from one market to the other, the $450 price tag also offers hope for
those waiting for the Lumia 920 in other markets like India. Adding
duties and other charges to $450 (approximately Rs. 24,750), the phone
may be priced between Rs. 30,000 and Rs. 35,000, which would make the
Nokia Lumia 920 an attractive buy at the price.
Nokia had recently launched the "cheapest Lumia device in the world",
Nokia Lumia 510, which is now available Rs. 9,999 online.
The Nokia Lumia 510 sports a 4-inch WVGA (800X480) display with a
5-megapixel rear camera and runs on Windows Phone 7.5. The phone is
powered by a 800MHz Qualcomm processor and ships with 256MB RAM and 4GB
