We're creeping closer and closer to the Windows Phone 8 launch date, rumored for early November. Now we are finally beginning the pre-launch phase where all of the prerequisites are being checked off the list. Camera samples? Check. Video testing? Check. Early pricing estimates? Check.
Today we have one more box to tick, thanks to the FCC clearing the Nokia Lumia 920 for sale in the United States. But hold you horses son, this is most likely not the version American carriers would be releasing later this year. According to the documents, this version of the phone supports five LTE bands but none of which are compatible with AT&T, Sprint, or Verizon. That means we could be looking for an identical handset, but with a slightly different model number to indicate it is for the United States.
Regardless, this is just another step taken on the road to release for Nokia. Progress is important, people.
