    First Windows Phone 8 devices launching this weekend, HTC 8X and others arriving in November | The Verge

    "Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has just confirmed that the first round of Windows Phone 8 devices, including the Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Ativ S, will be available this weekend in the US and will continue to rollout throughout the world in November."

    I don't remember hearing this personally. But I do know from a personal source that AT&T will have them soon.

    Yea Nokia UK;

    "The news youve been waiting for!

    Get your hands on the innovative Nokia Lumia 920 with EE and Phones 4u from the 2nd November!

    Also, the versatile Nokia Lumia 820 will be available with EE, Phones4u, O2, Tesco Phone Shop and Carphone Warehouse from the 7th November!"

    I am guessing US is the following weekend.

    This is quite possibly the most ridiculous launch in tech history.

    I feel as if I'm reliving the HP/Palm days with botched releases.

    I think I have to stop reading tech news and forums an just walk into the store when I want a new phone. That way I am surprised of the selection and am not disappointed by dates and future phones. :)

    Very true, Boom! It's like watching all of the trailers, tv spots, reading big parts of the plot, and then wondering why you're underwhelmed when you go to see the movie. :D

    I'm as guilty as anyone else. :)

    Huh, what, uh?

    The ATIV is coming this weekend? They didn't said which carriers.

    Anyway a new Microsoft store is opening this thursday here. Looks like I'll be getting my hands on every Windows Phone 8 device. Nyac nyac nyach *rubs hands*

    Surely the 920 is a dead duck in the UK? 36 a month on a 24 month plan with only 500mb of data?

    I'm going to be extremely disappointed if the 920 isn't available on my unlimited T-Mobile contract. Not only are the EE contracts more expensive for miniscule data but it will be a long long time before 4G even comes to my area.

    Also nice that everyone is reporting on which devices are on which US carriers and when they're released in the coming months, but I can't find anything about the UK launch other than the incredibly vague "WP8 will be available in europe this weekend"

    Any reason why the 8X feels like more of a flasgship than the 920.

    The 8X is not exclusive to AT&T for one. Microsoft actually loved the HTC design so much that ask HTC for it to be the face of Windows Phone 8. Hence the name "Windows Phone 8X" and not "HTC 8X".

    Depends on your point of view. To some it does. To others it doesn't. The same statement could be made for the 920.

    Do you really think there's even a slightest chance that MS didn't come knocking on Nokia's door first? "Thanks, but no thanks. We'll stick with the Lumia branding"

    That's exactly the feeling I get too. Don't know if I want to live through it again.

    This is a cluster. All I want to know is when I can pre-order certain devices from a reputable vendor that I am familiar with(unlocked).

    Being that Orange was mentioned, which isn't a US carrier, I believe he is talking about the UK sites...
