Just one day after U.S. carrier AT&T announced it will exclusively offer the Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone running on Windows Phone 8, Rogers has done the same thing in Canada.
The Nokia Lumia 920 will exclusively land on Rogers sometime next month, as the carrier's first Windows Phone 8 device. Rogers did not mention, however, any pricing or exact release date for the handset. The carrier said it would reveal that information closer to when the Lumia 920 is ready to go on sale.
For now, Rogers confirmed only that it will be the exclusive carrier of the Lumia 920, and that the smartphone will be able to access Rogers' LTE network in select cities in Canada.
"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, Rogers Communications' Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, according to the press release.
"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," said the company.
"Rogers' decision to offer the Nokia Lumia 920 in Canada is another example of the forward momentum behind our Lumia devices as well as the broader Windows ecosystem," added Don Leeke, General Manager of Nokia Canada.
The Lumia 920 is Nokia's higher-end Windows 8 device, and includes the latest advances in the company's PureView imaging innovation. According to Nokia, the camera in the Lumia 920 is able to take in five times more light than competing smartphones without using flash. This is possible due to its advanced floating lens technology, which allows the camera to capture clear, bright pictures and video even indoors or at night.
Other features include built-in wireless charging and Nokia City Lens, Nokia's latest addition to its location suite, and "the start of a new augmented reality experience that also enhances Nokia Maps."
"Along with enhancements to Nokia Drive and Nokia Transit, the Nokia location suite of services represents the most comprehensive, integrated mapping experience of any smartphone," further touts the press release.
