Elop Announces Nokia Lumia 930, Lumia Icon for the Rest of the World, Launching in June

Nokia is on the verge of becoming a fully fledged part of Microsoft, and Stephen Elop wants us to remember that Nokia is still in the game. Elop took to the stage at Microsoft’s Build conference today to introduce the Nokia Lumia 930, a 5-inch full HD display touting smartphone that will ship running the newest version of Windows Phone, 8.1. The Nokia 630 is destined for countries outside of the U.S., and will be arriving in the next few months.

The Nokia Lumia 930 is essentially the same device as the Verizon exclusive Nokia Lumia Icon, which is a superpowered Windows Phone handset with a 20MP PureView camera, 2GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 800 processor. Nokia will be focusing on pushing the Lumia Icon in the U.S., and the Lumia 930 in the rest of the world.

In true Nokia form, the Lumia 930 will come touting multiple color options and will retail for around $599, shipping in June.
