Nokia to ship WP8 devices this week New Lumia smartphones to ship this week.
The Finnish handset maker will deliver some of its new line of Lumia smartphones, starting in European markets, this week. A lot of faith is being put into the new handsets to help Nokia turn around a catastrophic decline in the market for smartphones, and change the company's fortunes for the positive again.

Its new high-end Lumia 820 and Lumia 920, running Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 operating system (unveiled yesterday), will appear first in Britain and France, then followed by Russia and Germany.

In the United States, AT&T will sell the same devices at its stores starting sometime in early-November.

Verizon Wireless is also slated to sell the Lumia 822 handset, while T-Mobile will sell the Lumia 810.

Nokia is making the exact same mistake as HTC: tailoring entire phone model runs to ONE carrier. I guess neither wants any of Samsung's success in the market =x ...
