Mexico has become an increasingly strong market for Windows Phone broadly and Nokia specifically. In fact, latest sales estimations from Kantar Worldpanel show a monstrous 10.5% year over year sales increase, landing at 12.5% market share for recent sales. Heck, they even have a Starbucks app.
With that in mind, it’s great to see the Nokia Lumia 925 finally getting ready to launch there.
The site Winphollowers have spotted the Lumia 925 in Telcel’s catalog of upcoming phones and the site has a “reliable source” claiming a September 30th launch date. Pricing is also rumored to fall between $8999 and $9500 pesos ($700-740 USD) for the device, presumably off-contract with two colors (black and white).
The Lumia 925 debuted at the beginning of summer, but it’s still launching in a few isolated markets. The device features a 4.5-inch AMOLED display, 8.7 MP PureView camera and comes in a very thin and light aluminum body, making it a very attractive offering for upper tier Lumias.
We’ll of course follow up if and when the Telcel Mexico date becomes official.
