Video: At&t; US confirms Nokia Lumia 920 and 820

The news today is that At&t has officially confirmed both Lumia 920 and 820 among its line up of smartphones coming this fall (in November).

In a press statement put out by At&t they also confirm that the Lumia 920 will be an At&t exclusive. That means if you want to use the most advanced phone this holiday, you will have to get onboard the At&t network.
That is kind of bad news and quite frankly a bad idea. Nokia is a struggling company and they need to make as much sales as possible and to do that they need to have their phones available in a big market, At&t is BIG no doubt, but is it enough to accelerate the growth on the Nokia Lumia  brand in the US? Nope!

Verizon and T-Mobile will get the Lumia 820 though (or at least some variant of it), let's hope these do better than the Lumia 710. Maybe Verizon could get the Lumia 920 at a later time (that's if there is an exclusivity period At&t has with the Lumia 920) and if there is one, it could be years, just like what they did with the iPhone when it first came out

Here is a video from AT&T on the Lumia 920...

The Lumia 920 will be available exclusive to At&t in all the colors: Black, White, Red, Yellow, Cyan, there is no mention of matte finish, elegant looking yet cool Grey version. Hopefully, they will release the Grey version maybe at a later date?

Just as I'm lamenting the fact that Nokia made a deal with At&t to make the Lumia 920 an At&t exclusive, CNET just released an article agreeing with me.
I think Nokia just dug a shallow grave on this one and thank God I am not the only one who thinks so.
