We first saw the Nokia Lumia 925 at an event in London back in mid-May. It marked the first time aluminum was used as the majority of material in a Lumia. I guess you could call it the Luminium 925. Lame jokes aside, the device hit folks in the UK and Europe a month later and then just today on T-Mobile in the United States. Now our pals in Singapore are three days away from being the first with the device in Asia.
Windows Phone Central reader LastBattle recently attended an event put on by Nokia Singapore at Tea Chapter in Singapore. There he and others had a chance to play with the Luminium beast and learn about the availability of the device in Singapore.
If you’re in Singapore you’ll be happy to know that starting this Saturday, July 20th, you’ll be able to pick up the Lumia 925 on three carriers- Singtel, Starhub and M1 Limited. The device will retail for 799.00 Singapore Dollars (about $633 USD). And depending on the carrier you’ll get some accessories bundled with the device (think JBL speakers, headsets, and wireless charging solutions). No word on which carrier is giving what out though.
At the event it was also announced that Singapore will be getting the Nokia Lumia 1020 and its 41 million pixels in
Q3 of this year I meant to to say Q4.
The Nokia Lumia 925 that is launching in a few days will be accompanied by an advertising campaign centered on Ip Man that will target Southeast Asia and China. Go watch the film on Netflix that is loosely based on the true story, thank me later. Here’s a video from the Nokia Singapore YouTube channel that gives you an idea of how they are tying in Ip Man with the Lumia 925.
Any of our readers over there in Southeast Asia thinking of picking up this phone? If you're not sure yet be sure to read our review (it might be the best Windows Phone you can buy right now).
Thanks for the story and images LastBattle!
