Rogers announce they are preferred carrier for Windows Phone 8, launches Lumia 920 tomorrow

Rogers has unveiled in a portion of its media event in Canada today that it's the preferred carrier in the country for Windows Phone 8, which is a claim we can certainly believe with the arsenal of handsets it's taking through to 2013. It's also set to be the first carrier in the world to sport the Lumia 920.

Announcing the Nokia Lumia 920, HTC 8X and Samsung ATIV S, the Canadian carrier is aiming high with only the flagship devices from each manufacturer on Microsoft's platform.

Rogers also revealed that a combined marketing effort would take place for the new hardware. The campaign will be boosted through investment from the manufacturers, themselves, and Microsoft.

As well as the above, Rogers will be putting the Lumia 920 on sale starting tomorrow. So be sure to check out your local Rogers store (or give them a bell) for more details. According to the presentation, the device will be available for $99.99 on a 3-year contract and $549.99 on a month-to-month rolling plan.

Thanks, Zach Gilbert from CrackBerry, for the info!
