Nokia Lumia 820, 920 priced in Europe Nokia has announced the pricing and availability of the Lumia 820 and 920 in certain European nations.
The Windows Phone 8 devices are the new flagships for the company, as it fights to remain relevant in the smartphone market.

In Germany and Italy, the price is 499 euros for the 820 and 649 for the 920.

The devices will go on sale on November 12th, available in at least four color ways.

The 920 has a nice 4.5-inch TrueBlack display and a fast dual-core S4 Snapdragon processor. The phone also offers a curved glass display just like the Lumia 800 before it. A new addition to Windows Phone is a microSD slot. Always fans of nice cameras, Nokia brought the PureView software from its 808 phone, adding that the camera catches 10x more light than other smartphones, making it ideal for dark shots.

A new feature is 'City Lens,' an augmented reality piece of software that 'overlays details about nearby points of interest or businesses onto the phone's display - providing information including reviews, ratings and contact information for nearby shops or restaurants at a glance.'

On the navigation side, the 920 brings the completely offline maps, and adds walking directions between all public transportation locations.

The 2000mAh battery uses wireless charging based on the Qi interoperability standards. Nokia has partnered with a retailer to create the 'recharge pillow,' which will go on sale too.

On the budget side, the 820 will have a smaller 4.3-inch display and a smaller battery.
