Earlier this week, I received an invite to “Come and be blown away by Lumia” next week Tuesday, 20th of November 2012. The event is the launch of the Lumia 920 here in Lagos. Of course, I am salivating at prospects of a hands-on with the flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone, and so I will be there.
This morning, I ran into several retweets and tweets about how a possible price range of N150,000 to N170,000 is being speculated for the 920. I can tell you authoritatively from sources within Nokia that the speculated price band is way off the mark. The Lumia 920 will not cost that much, so take a chill pill, people.
Let’s make it a date next week Tuesday.
