The good news is Nokia is finally getting some details out about its highly touted Lumia 920, specifically carrier deals. The bad news is they are couched in exclusivity deals (we’ll have more on that shortly).
Such is the case with Rogers in Canada who have announced that the Lumia 920 will be coming to the carrier with 4G LTE in November.
From their press release:
"Rogers is proud to bring the new Nokia Lumia 920 to our customers looking for the best unified experience and to further extend our leadership as the carrier with the largest LTE superphone selection in Canada," said John Boynton, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Rogers Communications. "With seamless access to entertainment, sports and business content, the Nokia Lumia 920 offers customers a world leading internet experience powered by the Rogers LTE network."
Sounds like a good deal for those on Rogers but not so great if you’re on Bell or Telus who are not expected to carry that particular model number—at least not on launch. Once again, consumers will have to chose which carrier they want to be a part of and that’s never a good way to get the phone into most people’s hands.

Dell has today announced the brand new versions of its popular XPS 15 and XPS 17 laptop range, now featuring the latest 45W Intel 11th-generation chips for extra performance and a new 3.5K OLED display panel for the 15.6-inch variant. Featuring the same great design as last years XPS line, but with the latest and greatest specs.
Intel H570 motherboards aren't quite as popular as the more expensive Z590 sibling, but that's for good reason. This slightly less capable chipset is tailored to those who have less budget to spare on a motherboard, but it has more than enough in terms of technology to handle 10th and 11th Gen processors.
