Nokia's just-introduced Lumia 920 flagship smartphone may go on sale this November, according to sources at European telecommunications operators. At the official unveiling, Nokia didn't release official launch dates or prices, with many criticizing it for this oversight. Nokia is late to the smartphone game and is relying on a relative newcomer for its choice of operating system in the Microsoft-developed Windows Phone 8.
Nokia and AT&T have slashed the price of the Lumia 900 Windows Phone 7 flagship handset to just $50 on a two-year plan. With most flagship handsets costing anywhere up to $199 on a two year contract, the Lumia 900 had debuted in April at an already thrifty $99. A recent analysis of Lumia 900 sales in the US suggests that Nokia has managed just 330,000 sales since its debut, while news that the smartphone won't be upgradeable to Windows Phone 8 may also be behind the price cut.
T-Mobile in Germany will not be stocking the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone. A forum post by a member of T-Mobile's support team advises that it is due to not having an upgrade path to Windows Phone 8, followed by customer frustration if the handset was bought then found not to be included in future updates, according to The Unwired.
Networking gear maker Sierra Wireless has just lifted the curtain of a new product, the AirPrime EM7700 embedded 4G modem. It has the distinction of being the first thin form factor 4G LTE network module, and is just 2.5mm thick. It is meant for use with tablets and ultra-portable notebooks.

Owners of the iPhone 4S and Lumia 800 can get solid advice on just about anything, thanks to the voice-recognition technology built into the phones' digital assistant software; but it turns out that if they ask for advice on smartphones, they may wind up with a bit of buyer's remorse. As The Next Web found out through experimentation, the two phones give conflicting and complementary answers when you ask each what is the best smartphone.
