Lumia 920, 820 launching in India next week

The Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Windows Phones are slated for a mid-January launch, confirmed by a live chat session with a Nokia Care representative. January 11th was the date provided in the chat window, which solidifies the information handed out previously. It was said Lumia Windows Phone hardware would be heading to the market early 2012.

Now solid dates are out in the open, consumers will be able to look forward to being able to purchase the Lumia 920 and 820 shortly, with the rest of the family following after. We've seen the flagship Windows Phone from Nokia suffer from shortages in multiple markets, so it'll be interesting to see how the company tackles India.

Lumia Live Chat

As well as the main Lumia hardware, Nokia has also kicked off marketing for the Lumia 510 with the 'Trendify' promotion campaign. This has seen a video being published that shows off the social features of the Windows Phone with a number of hand kissing. An effective way of building brand awareness in India, we're sure.
