Dallas – AT&T is expanding its selection of Nokia phones with its debut Sept. 13 of the Lumia 925, which has been available only through T-Mobile.
The Windows Phone 8 smartphone, which will be available exclusively in black for the AT&T network, will retail for $99 with contract or $21 per month for 12 months on AT&T’s Next plan. Next lets consumers pay off an unsubsidized no-contract phone after 12 monthly payments, then trade in their device and begin payments on a new device. The plan is not available through indirect channels.
The Lumia 925 joins multiple Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 phones on the AT&T network, including the Lumia 1020, 920, 820 and 520, AT&T said.
The Lumia 925 was Nokia’s first Windows Phone 8 smartphone made from both polycarbonate plastic and aluminum.
First unveiled by Nokia in May, the phone features 4.5-inch AMOLED WXGA touchscreen with curved Gorilla Glass 2, 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of internal memory, 2,000 mAh battery, and 8.7-megapixel PureView camera with optical image stabilization, dual LED flash and 1080p video capture.
The Carl Zeiss lens consists of six lenses to capture sharper, more natural-color images and offer improved low- light performance, AT&T said.
Via the Nokia Pro Camera app, the camera offers manual adjustments to flash, focus, ISO, shutter speed, white balance and exposure.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
