yellow

Great news for those who preordered a yellow Nokia Lumia 1520! Several users on our forums have just received their shipping notifications, so check your email if you placed an order as well. We hope this also means better availability for this color. The AT&T stores we called at launch did not have them in stock and Microsoft Stores don’t even have yellow listed on their website.

With the late night announcement from Nokia and AT&T about the pre-order for the Lumia 1520, due for release on Friday, November 22nd, “which color?” has become the hot topic.

The good news is if you pre-order through AT&T, you can nab yourself a yellow one. But if you want to get it through Microsoft via their Store, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Indeed, we’re hearing from a close source that yellow will be “scarce”, hinting at a possible shortage of the color.

Recently we saw the upcoming 41MP Nokia Lumia ‘EOS’ (don’t worry, that’s just its codename) appear in black, metal and even white. We of course revealed that the phone would also come in yellow, especially for AT&T where the device goes by the codename ‘Elvis’.

Earlier yesterday, Nokia teased the monster camera-phone on their Conversations blog by noting there are “41 million reasons” to tune in on July 11th, when the phone is expected to be revealed in New York City for the press.

Yeah, yeah, we know Nokia didn’t invent colors on smartphones, nor are we necessarily upset that more OEMs are embracing the bold and bright options that nature gave us, but we’re a tad suspicious here of the Huawei’s Ascend W2 that has now been revealed in yellow.

Truth be told, the device is not bad looking at all, except for all of that bezel. The W2 is supposed to be more high-end than the current W1, which itself is not a bad entry level device.

The Lumia 920 has been added to the catalogue of Windows Phones available at Canadian mobile operator Rogers. The unique colour is one of the rare variants, along with the grey and red versions. Priced at the same points as other Lumia 920s listed on the company's website, the $49.99 on a 3-year contract isn't a bad deal (though it is for anyone who's used to 1-year and 2-year plans).

The cyan and yellow Lumia 920 is now back in stock at both Amazon Wireless and AT&T. Cyan is exclusive to the US mobile operator and has proven to be limited in numbers, much like other versions of the Windows Phone, including yellow, which is always hard to find.

We've previously covered the black and cyan variants of the Lumia 920 being unavailable through AT&T, which is a familiar experience across the globe.

Rogers has earned themselves some angst from potential customers who want to pick up the new Nokia Lumia 920.  Between making unofficial/official announcements of selling the device (even boldly proclaiming to be the “first” like a child on the internet), they so far have failed to deliver. Stock is barely existent and when it can be found, customers get one choice of color: matte black. That’s especially bad since we all know the 920 comes in many more options.

This morning AT&T threw open the preorders for the Nokia Lumia 920, which is commanding a super-low $99 price tag on contract in addition to a limited offering of a free wireless charging pad.

What may be of interest to some is the fact that the off-contract, no commitment price (but yes, still locked to AT&T) is just $450. That’s quite fascinating as most had expected the no-commitment price to be north of $599. That is what Best Buy (and eBay) had as the off-contract price and considering the technology on board the Lumia 920 it made sense. Even when some of us applied a 25% off coupon on the eBy preorder our price was knocked down to $450, which at the time seemed like a steal. (Best Buy is price matching AT&T, so keep that in mind if you ordered from them).

Is this the Nokia 'Phi' Lumia 800 sequel?

File this under rumor but certainly plausible. The fan site Nokia Innovations is reporting that the alleged Nokia prototype phone that was leaked last night is in fact the Nokia ‘Phi’. Mind you that’s the code-name not product name, much like the Ace and SeaRay were used for the Lumia 900 and 800 respectively. What’s interesting about Nokia Innovation’s post is that it slghtly pre-dated those images by a few hours as that site was expecting their own images to come forward too.

The notion that Nokia would make a successor to the Lumia 800 is not far fetched at all. It’s a wildly popular design, one that we prefer even over the Lumia 900 due to the curved screen. Evidently Nokia CEO Stephen Elop was impressed with the Lumia 800 that he doesn’t want to let the design go, just have it evolve which to our ears makes sense.

So without further ado, here are some of the rumored specifications of the Lumia 800 successor aka the ‘Phi’...

What Nokia phone is this?

File this under rumor but likely something but the folks at WPDang caught some images off of a Sina Weibo stream that clearly reveal some type of new Nokia prototype phone. For those who don’t know, Sina Weibo is sort of like Twitter in China. The images show what look to be a Lumia-type device running either Windows Phone 7.8 or 8.0. (We were also sent the images by a reader of this site, talan1314)

Not much was revealed about the phone and the images were quickly deleted off of the user’s stream. No specifications were gathered either though it does sport the old Windows flag which may or may not mean something.
