Nokia unveiled its Lumia 920 and 820 Windows Phone 8 devices earlier this month, but the company refused to mention pricing, pre-orders, and availability dates. Despite this, Nokia's Russian subsidiary has started to officially take pre-orders for both devices today, with availability slated for Q4 2012. The Lumia 920 is priced at 24,990 rubles ($801) and the Lumia 820 at 19,990 rubles ($640), with both prices reflecting Russia's traditional higher pricing for smartphones.
Nokia Germany and Nokia Italy have also announced pricing, with availability dates in November. Nokia Germany is pricing the Lumia 920 at 649 euros ($836) and the Lumia 820 at 499 euros ($643). Both devices will be available in November. Nokia Italy has priced the Lumia 920 slightly lower at 599 euros ($771), and it says both will be available in mid-November. Russian citizens can pre-order the Lumia 920 and 820 immediately, with the 920 available in yellow, red, white, and black — while the 820 is available in red, white, and black. We have reached out to Nokia for comment on pre-orders and pricing in other markets and we'll update you accordingly.
Update: Nokia says it has no pricing or availability dates to announce for the UK today.
Update 2: Bloomberg is reporting that the Lumia 920 will be available in Italy on November 12th from carrier TeliaSonera.
