lumia 930

Microsoft has announced that the Lumia 930 will officially be available for purchase in France this week, with some stores in that country getting their shipments in a few days.

Microsoft has a recommended price of 549 euros for the Lumia 930. The company's announcement also has prices for some hardware accessories for the Windows Phone 8.1 device, including the Fatboy wireless charger for 79.90 euros, the locator for 24.90 euros and a mini Bluetooth speaker with microphone for 49.90 euros.

This will likely be one of many announcements by Microsoft in Europe this week for the Lumia 930 as the phone is expected to go on sale in several countries in that part of the world through mid-July. The device is the international version of the Lumia Icon that came out in the U.S. earlier this year, with a 5-inch screen, a 2.2 Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage and a 20 megapixel rear camera. Unlike the Icon, the Lumia 930 comes in a variety of color choices.

If you live in Europe, do you plan to purchase the Lumia 930 when it becomes available this week or will you wait until the first reviews come in?
