Nokia announces Lumia 920, 820 availability and pricing for Europe and beyond

Nokia announces pricing for both new Lumias

Nokia has unveiled today availability and pricing for both of its new Windows Phones in a handful of markets. The Lumia 820, as well as the Lumia 920, will be heading to countries throughout Europe and beyond. We've long awaited confirmation on where the new hardware will be heading, not to mention how much it'll cost consumers to invest in.

Many websites have already started to accept pre-orders with prices hovering around the €499 and €599 marks for the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 respectively. This has now been confirmed to be accurate with Nokia Germany announcing hardware pricing, but the company has the Lumia 920 at a slightly higher €649.

Nokia Italy publsihed a the same price tag as the pre-orders for the Lumia 920, undercutting Germany by €100 (€599). Should this not be in error, we could see some cheaper options for Nokia's latest Windows Phones. In Germany, O2 DE and mobilcom-debitel will be stocking the Lumia 820, while Vodafone and Telekom will sport both the Lumia 920 and its younger brother. Both are expected in November 2012.

Those who reside in Italy will be able to purchase said handsets from H3G, Telecom Italia, Vodafone and Wind in November this year. Nokia has also revealed minimal detail for Australia, according to a report by WPDownUnder. Availability information is not yet available, but the Lumia 920 will reportedly be stocked by Telstra to use its 4G network, while Vodafone and Optus will both have the Lumia 820 for business customers. More details to follow. notes that Nokia Russia has gone a step further and has begun accepting pre-orders for both the Lumia 920 (white, black, red and yellow) and the Lumia 820 (white, black and red) with price tags of 24,990 ($800) and 19,990 ($640) respectively.

Unfortunately pricing and availability is yet to be unveiled for other markets, but we're sure more information will be released soon. We can imagine other European markets will follow suit with Germany's pricing and release dates.

Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
