AT&T today announced that it plans to sell both the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 devices beginning in November. The two Lumia smartphones run Windows Phone 8. The Lumia 920 will be offered in red, white, black, yellow, and cyan. The Lumia 820 will only be offered in black. Both devices will run on AT&T's LTE 4G network. Pricing and exact availability were not provided by AT&T.

Really? does windows expect to do very well if there intro phones for windows phone 8 are only on one carrier. And I think they are waiting to long to start the sale of these new phones and their surface tablet since they announced them how long ago now.? I think I'm forgetting what was so nice about this phone anyways everyone else is coming out with new things idk...
While I do wish the Nokia would not have allowed the 920 to be exclusive to just one carrier, the fact of the matter is, there are four other very good phones to head to other carriers. Both HTC phones and that goliath of a phone, the Samsung Ativ. If I'm not mistaken, the Nokia 820 will still make an appearance on other networks.
