Launches the Lumia 920T, the first TD-SCDMA Windows phone
Nokia and China Mobile today announced the Lumia 920T, the first TD-SCDMA Windows Phone in China.
As the largest operator in China, China Mobile will play a significant role in bringing the Lumia experience to more Chinese consumers with its expansive TD network coverage.
Lumia 920T's powerful dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, partnered with China Mobile's high-speed 3G network, is set to deliver fast data connectivity.
The Lumia 920T uses Pureview's advanced floating lens technology, and takes in five times more light than competing smartphones without using a flash. This makes it possible for people to capture clear, bright pictures and video indoors and at night. It also has the world's most sensitive touchscreen, and thanks to Nokia's ClearBlack display technology offers better visibility in the brightest sunlight. The Lumia 920T also comes with the full suite of Nokia navigation applications, including Nokia City Lens.
In addition to the rich applications available in Nokia's Marketplace, Lumia 920T users will enjoy the additional benefit of access to Mobile Market, China Mobile's application store, offering a large range of applications and services tailored for Chinese people, and an easy shopping experience
Stephen Elop, president and CEO of Nokia, commented: 'We are delighted to partner with China Mobile, the world's largest operator, to introduce China's first Lumia based on Windows Phone 8. People around the world are responding positively to the new Lumia devices, and we're confident that the enthusiasm will extend to China with the Lumia 920T.' Said Li Yue, president of China Mobile Communications: 'Our close cooperation with Nokia is a key contributor to the success of China's TD industry, and will further enhance the rapidly growing TD ecosystem. We are excited about this important next step in our partnership, and we look forward to creating an even more vibrant TD industry together.' To further drive momentum of China's Windows Phone ecosystem, Nokia and Air China today announced a strategic partnership which lets consumers enjoy wireless chargers in Beijing Airport VIP lounges. Furthermore, Jiepang announced a service that lets consumers enjoy great deals by simply tapping their Lumia 920T using NFC in some outlets in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. The Lumia 920T will be available for order by the end of the year. It will retail at RMB 4599 without contract.
