More online preorders for Nokia Lumia 820, 920 show up online

Sweden & Belgium get early orders online

Either online stores in Europe are taking advantage of the preorder craze or they know something we don’t about device availability, specifically for Nokia’s new Windows Phone 8 Lumia line.

Such is the case with online Swedish shop Phone House who has the Lumia 920 now listed on their site with a going price of 5799kr with tax and chargers. We’re told by reader elversson that Phone House is normally more pricey than other online retailers so if you have sticker shock, that may be the case (we’re also not sure if prices have been finalized or these are 'guestimates').

Likewise, the Belgium-based SmartPhoneshop.be has both the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 now listed for €499 and €599, respectively.  In addition, you can do the email/SMS signup to be immediately notified when both devices are available for purchase.

Combined with Phones4U listing both devices and the increasing amount of online preorders, it looks like these new Lumias are destined for a late October release, though that is surely subject to change. Alternatively, you can preorder the Samsung ATIV S if you're in the Netherlands.

Thanks, vixez and elversson, for the links

  • All I want to do is preorder a 920 on verizon
  • I was just about to post the same thing. I want to preorder the 920 on Verizon too..
  • All I want is the 920 on T-MO =( something about the 820 I just don't like.
  • There is nothing wrong with the 820... it's a nice phone but, after my curent phone being a HTC Trophy, I really want a flagship phone.
     
    The 920 is pretty much a flagship phone and is ALMOST perfect, if it had the SDcard slot, it would be perfect
  • Exact same situation, exact same opinions. +1
  • I also want the 920 on t mobile. Looks like t mobile is ONLY getting the low line like the 720 instead of the 900. Might be time to do the switch.
  • Agreed.
  • YES!
  • +1,000,000
  • What a coincidence, me too! 
  • Me too!
  • It seems as with the 710 and 800 before, that the EU market could get the 820 and 920 before the US does, if only by a week or two.    I'm ready to get my 920 as well.
  • Why announce the phone in the U.S and not let us have dibs on it first?
  • Seriously?... Just wow...
  • Verkkokauppa.com is in Finland also has pre-orders up for Lumia 920 and 820. (note that the 999 euros is a place holder).
    http://www.verkkokauppa.com/fi/s?s=1&q=2064+or+6960+or+6956+or+6529
    Worth to note because verkkokauppa.com is quite famous at receiving some Nokia accessories and devices first in the world.
     
    Interestingly enough i was talking just yesterday with pone of the guys that handles products on the site and he said that they still had not received anything about grey Lumia 920.
    So grey Lumia 920 is the only color not up in the pre-order yet. 
  • 499 euros is bloody expensive for what is ment to be a bloody mid range phone that's probly something like $800 and near enough the same in £ I defo won't be buying if those prices are accurate :/
  • 499 euros would probably be in the range of $499 or less. After all these years you would think people have learned to not directly convert euro prices.
    Is iPhone 4S 32GB 931 dollars in North America?
     
    And anyways Nokia has not released the prices to retailers so it's uselsss to try to try commenting on these placeholder prices by shops that want some attention. 
     
    That said i certainly expect the price to be 4xx euros. No way it will be in the 3xx range.
  • I agree, VAT in Finland is 23%, I don't know about US VAT, but it's lower? So a direct conversion does not apply.
  • In EU prices are inclusive of VAT already.
  • Yes it is, but I googled a little and saw that they don't have VAT in the US, only some states have a sales tax, usually around 8-11%. So a direct conversion does not apply.
  • I wasn't directly converting it was off the top of my head the euro is now similar to the great British pound and when you convert the pound to dollars its almost double i don't see any reason to start attacking
  • No its not. 1.25 euro is 1 pound. so its still a 4:5 ratio in coverting pounds to euro.
  • And I don't see any reason for your bitçhin
  • Bitching? How is that even possible i was just stating that the phones are abit expensive which most smart phones are yeah i got the conversions way off and and then every one jumped to call me an idiot im was just saying
  • €499 is $640 at the moment.
    For comparison iPhone 4S 32 Gb is $749 (16Gb is $649).
  • 499 Euros = $639.45
  • Has anyone heard anything about att letting you upgrade early to a 920 at a discounted rate like they do if you want to upgrade to a new iPhone before your eligible.
  • Everytime I see the lumia 920 I always say to my self this phone is not gonna be my next phone.. But men the more I see it I just have to buy it...
  • You can't pre-order it on The Phone House, just sign up to get a mail when its avalible! ;)
  • The funny thing is that the Lumia 920 is set to the price of 5700 SEK on the Swedish phonehouse site. On the same site a 16 Gb iPhone 4s costs 6500 SEK. That gives a 15% higher price for iPhone 4s vs. L920!
  • It's a good thing most people are mentally disabled. Let them buy those overpriced iProducts so I can buy better ones for less :-)
  • That's a bit harsh.  But I'm going to buy a few iphone 5s to sell to these dummies to fund my 920 :)
  • more useless info for me. I work for sprint so I have a free cell phone bill and I'm screwed until sprint announces any WP8 device.
  • That's paradoxical, since what you post is useless to me.
  • 920 for T-Mobile . Seems impossible .. But we can at least dream right?
  • It is too expensive!! :[
  • Smartphoneshop.be also has the Ativ S listed (for €559) as well as the Ativ tab 10.1 9 (for €699), the Ativ smart pc (for €849) and the Ativ smart pc pro (no pricing given). I realy hope I can get my money back for my TITAN so I can buy the 920 :)
  • Great news, then I hope I have the choice to pick up a new Nokia device if its good enough.
  • PhoneHouse has withdrawn the expected price of SEK 5800. Now there is only the information about Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 and no prices. ON THE OTHER HAND the mail order vendor Dustin has Samsung ATIV S (silver) at SEK 4999 for pre-orders (that's inc tax but excl freight). I expect these prices will come down slightly before actual shipping.
    I definitely know which one I will go for if these (prices) are indicators.
