German retailer Media Markt has listed both the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 on its website with release dates of November 1st. Both Windows Phones are expected to be made available on that day, should the reported date hold true, and will be priced at €449 (approx. £360) and €649 (approx. £520) respectively.
Update: It seems Media Markt has bumped the date from November 1st to November 15th. This change has occured the same day a German Vodafone store stated on its Facebook page that they will be stocking the Lumia Windows Phone 8 handsets at the start of November. We'll have to see if the date sticks. Thanks, Schneppe, for spotting the alteration!
The date comes in a few days prior to AT&T's expected launch of the Lumia 920, which is exclusive to the US carrier. Microsoft is to reveal Windows Phone 8 on October 29th at a number of locations with what appears to be a synchronised multi-market event. Windows Phone Central will be in the front row to bring the latest news.
The Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Windows Phone 8 handsets are Nokia's next line of defence in the company's downwards spiral since ditching Symbian back in 2011 in favour of Microsoft's mobile platform.
