Nokia was short on release and pricing details when it announced its two new Windows Phone 8 smartphones, the Lumia 920 and 820, at an event on Wednesday. But now several rumors are pointing to a Nov. 2 release date for Nokia’s flagship Lumia 920.

The handset will be available in the United States on AT&T, according to reports from The Verge and TechRadar. Reuters sources also confirmed that Nokia would start selling the Lumia 920 in Europe around the same time in early November. The Lumia 820 will also ship in the first week of November, rumored to be available through T-Mobile in the U.S.

Other stateside carriers might also offer the Lumia line. Verizon has plans to carry several Windows Phone devices by Q4 of this year, and has been in talks with Nokia, according to CNET, though there’s no word on timing or specific models.

A Nov. 2 release would follow closely on the heels of the formal launch of Windows Phone 8, which is expected for Oct. 29. That would get the new Lumias out for the holiday season, but it would also put the devices more than a month behind the rumored Sept. 21 release for the iPhone 5.
