Nokia Lumia 920 coming to AT&T on Oct. 21, says BGR

700-nokia-lumia-920-color-rangeThe Boy Genius Report, a respected blog on all things mobile, is reporting today that the Nokia Lumia 920 will go on sale in the US at AT&T on October 21st, along with the Samsung Galaxy Note II.

The Lumia 920 was unveiled in New York on September 5th, but with no pricing or availability information.   A post on the Nokia For Us blog dated September 5 revealed a tip to them with a November 2nd launch date for the Lumia 820 and 920 on AT&T.  That story was picked up by TechRadar, and The Verge also separately reported on a November 2 launch rumor.

While this new, earlier date for a Lumia launch would be welcome news, it doesn’t jibe with a number of rumors about either a Lumia or Windows Phone 8 launch.  We reported earlier on an All About Microsoft post that set a Windows Phone 8 launch date on October 29th, which would fall right in to the November 2 AT&T launch scenario, but would place that event after an October 21st AT&T launch.

Still, the sooner these phones get on the shelves and compete against the iPhone 5 (which has already sold out of pre-orders), the better.

    BGR is not as trustworthy as it once was.  From what I’ve heard you’re going to be able to pre-order in very late October (after the 29th) , it will launch in very early November (around the 2nd).

    It may be made available for preorder on 10/21 but no way it will be put in customers hands until after Microsoft does a formal Windows Phone 8 event (non-developer), which is predicted to be 10/29.
