I had really thought that the US and Europe would be the first ones to lay their eyes and hands on the Nokia Lumia 920, but it's being said that the Canadian market is the one that gets to be the first buyers of the 920 almost immediately after its been announced - on 30th October 2012, that's today!
The Nokia Lumia 920 was first showcased by Nokia in September 2012, so its pretty immediately that stores in Canada get it!
In the US, AT&T gets the sole rights to sell the Nokia Lumia 920 for a limited period of time. It's been said that the 920 should be in the US stores by early November, while some are speculating that it will actually be the 04th of November. Another fast-spreading rumour around the blogging world says that the 920 will be available in AT&T stores on the 11th of November.
In China, China Mobile, the world's largest telecom carrier has agreed to launch Nokia Lumia 920 on its network.
According to Rediff, the 920 was set to reach Indian stores by 23rd October but that was a wrong information floated online!
As per Nokia, the Lumia 920 will reach 15 countries in November. These countries include India, Australia, Hong Kong and the United States.
There has yet been no confirmation on when the same will be available in stores in India, but it looks like it should be available here during Diwali festivities, as this is a massive shopping time for Indians all over the country.
