Nokia has released pricing for its newest smartphone challengers, as the struggling phone-maker once again puts its fate in the lap of Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform.
The first phones out of Espoo powered by the new Windows Phone 8 iteration of the operating system, the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 are up for grabs on Nokia’s website for 649 Euros and 499 Euros respectively when bought SIM-free and direct from Nokia’s site.
That ought to equate to a monthly price point of between £30-35 for the top-end Lumia 920 if you want to pick it up sans upfront fee. The mid-range Lumia 820, meanwhile, ought to come in at between £25-30.
Billed as Nokia’s flagship phone for 2012, the Lumia 920 teams a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display with ClearBlack tech, a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and an eight-megapixel PureView snapper with Carl Zeiss optics.
The Lumia 820’s spec sheet takes in an eight-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens, but without the 920’s PureView tech, a secondary 1.9-megapixel cam around the front for video calls and a 4.3-inch display.
