As we noted earlier this morning, the Nokia Lumia 925 with its aluminum body and 8.7MP PureView camera went on sale today on T-Mobile, giving customers on that network their first shot at a high-end Nokia Windows Phone.
The device retails for $49 (with a 2 year repayment plan) or $550 outright and could be bought in stores or online, which ever you prefer.
We picked one up this morning and have been toying with it for the last few hours and so far we’re impressed (we also dropped it onto pavement, by accident). The device does come with Microsoft’s Data Sense installed and ready to use, which should make many of you happy to know where your data is going. Likewise, Skype, Nokia Smart Cam and T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi calling feature were all pre-installed too, giving users quite a lot bang for their buck out of the box.
The Lumia 925 can be thought of as a sister device to the Lumia 920 and while it lacks the bold colors of its sibling and built-in wireless charging, it does have that improved camera (six lens elements), super light body and let’s face it, it looks sharp.
You can read our full review of the unlocked version of the Lumia 925 here and let us know in comments if you plan on picking one up!
