The Nokia Lumia 930 is finally hitting the streets worldwide, and we managed to pick one up as well. Microsoft sent over a well put together beach basket with flip flops, a photo book, sunglasses, and the Lumia 930 with accessories, including the new CP-637 flip cover.
Let us unbox the Lumia 930 and show you everything you need to know about the latest flagship Windows Phone, including some Lumia Cyan information!
The Nokia Lumia 930 is the Lumia Icon released earlier this year on Verizon. The differences comedown to more color choices, including bright green or orange, and international support for more carriers. The downside for those in the US is price and the inability to run on our LTE networks due to differing 4G bands.
