Nokia’s online store in Italy now taking preorders for Lumia 920, expected in November
Nokia’s Italy contingent announced not too long ago that the Lumia 920 will be available for pre-order at the €599 price point and coming in November.
While we still don’t have a firm release date to add to that, we can now direct you to NStore.it, which we’re told is the official Nokia online store for that country. For a deposit of €99, you can reserve your own 920, but only in white or black (insert sad trombone).
We’re not sure if that’s a better deal than what you can get through your carrier (H3G, Telecom Italia, Vodafone or Wind) but if unlocked an non-hassle is your thing, then you may want to give it some consideration.
You can head over to NStore.it’s dedicated pre-order page to get the ball rolling. Thanks, Mirko S., for the tip

€599 is a pretty standard launch price for a high-end smartphone.
Why can't I just go to Nokia's U.S. website and order directly from there? Instead the only way to get the proper selection is to go through eBay sellers. Newegg's and Amazon's selection of unlocked phones is OK at best and terrible at worst.
