The Windows Phone 8-powered Nokia Lumia smartphones have made their way to Mexico as the company's Mexican Web site shows an array of Lumia handsets for sale.
Nokia Mexico's Web site shows the Lumia 920, Lumia 820, and Lumia 620, which all pack the latest Windows Phone 8 (WP8). Nokia's WP8 flagship Lumia 920 is expected to launch in April and could cost 10499 Mexican pesos (USD $824.67).
Per the Nokia Mexico's Web site, the Lumia 920 will be available in five colors. Interestingly, it seems that the cyan version of the phone will not be available in Mexico, but the gray variant will be made available in the country. Recently, the gray Nokia Lumia 920 was spotted in Hong Kong; however, Nokia is yet to confirm the same.
Currently, Mexico's Telcel offers the low-end Nokia Lumia 505 which is powered by Windows Phone 7.8.
The Lumia 920 is one of the most popular WP8 smartphones around, which has enticed many smartphone enthusiasts looking for an alternative to iOS and Android handsets. Rumors indicate that Nokia is already planning for the successor of the Lumia 920 a.k.a Lumia 1000 which is expected to sport an aluminum body and a 41-megapixel camera.
Nokia is also slated to host a press event on Feb. 25 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013, where eager fans will be waiting for Nokia to reveal at least a new Lumia smartphone.
With the launch of Lumia 620, Lumia 820, and Lumia 920, Nokia will try to establish itself in all smartphone categories. However, with the competition heating up, time will tell if Nokia will be able to make a strong impact in the Mexican market with a late release of its WP8 smartphone line-up.
