People were really disappointed when they came to know about the fact that 4G provider Airtel uses TD-LTE 2300 MHz band which is not supported by the Nokia Lumia 920. So despite of having an LTE provider and Lumia 920 being an LTE device, they won’t be able to enjoy the LTE service.
However, while chatting with Nokia Care person, he revealed that Nokia will release a OTA update soon for Lumia 920 which will unlock the TD-LTE band in Lumia 920. We may not consider it as an official statement. I have real bad experience with Nokia priority dealer and their noobish talk. But still we can hope this to be true.
India has LTE connectivity in three cities, Banglore, Pune & Kolkata provided by AirTel. There are probably no mobile phones that supports TD-LTE. TD-LTE is very least used standard, mainly adopted in China. It requires buying an expensive USB device to use them currently. Support for TD-LTE from Lumia 920 will surely bring a boost in LTE users in India.

Nokia Lumia 920 & 820 are about to be launched in major markets and many online stores have already listed them as “Coming Soon”.
@SirajSoft shared a screen of html meta from a online store http://www.saholic.com and it captured my attention with price in meta description.
Though they have listed the device price as Coming Soon at Lumia 920 & 820 product page, they have included price in meta description. Price for Lumia 920 is Rs. 24999 ($465.5) and for 820, it is Rs. 19999 ($372). They are quite unbelievable as they launched Lumia 800 at Rs. 29,000. It may be just their SEO tricks to gain attention.
Whatever, but even if price fall even near them, it will be a big hit! Lumia 920 and 820 should be launched in India this month as confirmed by Nokia, however no announcements on date or price.
*finger crossed* 😉
Thanks @SirajSoft for sharing the tip. 🙂
Nokia announced a new member in Lumia family few days back, Nokia Lumia 510, a low end WP device. Device is now available at India’s well known online store Flipkart.com at killer price of Rs. 9,999 (<$186).
Such a nice device with this great pricing is surely going to give tough time to low end android phones. WP is gaining popularity in high end smartphone market gradually and Lumia 510 is going to push popularity in low end segment too.
Nokia Lumia 510, running WP7.5, sports 800MHz processor with 512MB RAM, 5MP Camera, 4″ TFT Capacitive Touch screen, wifi, FM Radio, etc. Surely a great deal for Rs. 9,999.
So, are you going to get one for you? 🙂
Nokia Lumia 920 got listed on Maniac Store at the price of 30,990 INR which is approx 597 USD. The price is pretty good considering Nokia 808 PureView was launched at 33k INR. Product is still just listed, with an option to notify you when it is available.
I have personally never used this store, neither I have any idea about its reliability. There are tempting options like Cash on Delivery and EMI option. Pretty well if it stays at same price even after it is available.
I am looking forward to this Store. Are you?
Nokia just announced on it’s official blog, Nokia Conversation , one of the most innovative smartphone ever, Lumia 920 is coming to US on AT & T in November. Lumia 820 will also be available at the same time.

People were confused whether there will be a Cyan Lumia 920. Well, Nokia finally announced that Cyan color will also be available.
Quoting them about accessories:
The new Lumia phones will be joined by a plethora of accessories such as the Nokia Wireless Charging Pad and Wireless Charging Stand, as well as the JBL PowerUp Wireless Charging Speaker.
Well, nice to see not much delay. There is no word about pricing yet. Let’s see how reasonable they turn out to be.
