Nokia Lumia 920 coming to some Rogers stores today

AT&T to launch Nokia Lumia 920 on October 21st?

Microsoft took the final wraps off of Windows Phone 8 at the company’s official launch event in San Francisco yesterday. Carriers are quickly announcing upcoming availability of Windows Phone 8 device, though Canada telecom Rogers appears to have first dibs on Windows 8 and Nokia’s flagship Lumia 920.

Rogers confirmed late last night that some of its retail outlets will begin selling the Lumia 920 starting today, well ahead of the expected early to mid-November release date for Windows Phone 8 devices. Customers lucky enough to find a Rogers store with the Lumia 920 in stock will walk away with the device for $100 on the customary 3-year contract, or $550 on a month-to-month plan.

The Lumia 920 features a 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ ClearBlack display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2.0, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 32 GB of internal storage, 1 GB RAM, and an 8 megapixelcamera with Carl Zeiss lens, dual LED flash, and optical image stabilization, and is truly one of the must-have Windows Phone 8 devices on the market.

Non-Rogers customers can rest assured that the Lumia 920 will likely be coming your way soon. As Engadget points out, Microsoft suggested other Canadian carriers would get the Lumia 920 as well, paving the way for Bell and Telus to offer the device in coming weeks.

    WHICH ROGERS STORES!?

    I’ve had three sales reps question as to why I would want such a phone, and one tried to persuade me to switch to the galaxy 2!!!! As the 920 was “not user friendly and only good for gamers”

    No one knows that its even been released….
    NOKIA should not be giving rogers any exclusivity, they are only bashing their products to customers and trying to re-direct sales to android and apple.

      According to my (semi-)reliable sources, there will be 3 locations selling it in downtown Toronto: Flagship Store (10 Dundas E), Eaton Centre and Rogers Plus in Exchange Towe r (130 King W)

    I called the 1.888 line and the customer service rep said they should be selling at authorized Rogers dealers today. He was kind enough to look up a couple of locations near to me. I phoned them both to double check and they both said they don’t have any in stock. Rogers needs to get it together man. I asked one of the clerks if he knew where to find the Lumina 920 and he said” do have the internet?” I wish I could get the 920 from another provider having dealt with the Rogers devil children.
