The other day we posted the about how Rogers in Canada was finally getting ready to sell their Windows Phone 8 devices Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X. The date was rumored to be November 12th but the announcement was quickly pulled. But thankfully that date appears to be back on...
The Lumia 920 has a very soft launch a few weeks ago with a few stores getting even fewer of the phones. But this finally looks to be the "full launch" and the fact that you can go to the Rogers site and buy either phone is testament to that fact.
The Nokia Lumia 920, only available in black, comes with 32GB and will go for $99 on a 3 year contract or $549 on month-to-month. Meanwhile the HTC 8X in California Blue and 16GB of storage will go for the exact same price--$99 or $549 on month-to-month.
Unfortunately there is no sign of the Samsung ATIV S, which was shown earlier for the carrier though presumably it is coming "later". Nor is there word on an 8GB version of the HTC 8X, rumored to be priced at $49 on a 3 year contract or $499 month-to-month.
Rumor also has it that the Rogers Lumia 920 is unlocked, allowing it to even work on fellow Canadian carrier WIND or T-Mobile US due to its pentaband radio. We have not verified that info with this new stock of 920s but we hope to do so soon.
Head to Rogers to order online or maybe swing by your local store to see if they have any in stock. Thanks, Shane, for the tip!
