    50k apps? What?

    • Viipottaja

      In the Chinese Marketplace. I guess many developers have not published their app there or they are banned there.

  • JGrove303

    Probably 50,000 apps localized in Mandarin.

    awesome! I hope the 920T is a huge hit and massive seller!

  • Lampleon

    Smile, China, smile!

  • StefanP

    Ah, the “T” version with the secret service API on board.

  • Peter

    Great news!

  • nando

    is anybody watchin this

  • Rinslowe

    What about the release date?

    • Viipottaja

      “available for order by the end of the year” it says in the Conversations story.

  • qromo

    out of topic but,hey jay,nokia launched lumia 620!


    maybe this is why NOK jumped 5.5% yesterday, those bastard traders usually know the news before it happens,

    “Nokia and Air China announce a strategic partnership which lets passengers enjoy wireless chargers in Beijing Airport VIP lounges”

    oh how i wish i could see the look of jealousy on the faces of the isheep when they see lumia owners charging their phones.
    who’s VIP now biatch !!!

    Another fail as Apple will launch their phone on Dec 14. Not saying this will measure the success of the Lumia but it will put a dent in it. I am sure people in China understand what and innovative phone is as compared to the U.S. Lol

    • capedonut

      The iPhone will not be available on China Mobile, the largest carrier

      • Mark

        Oh what a shame, you rained on Mike’s hate parade!

        Dry your eyes, Mike! 🙂

        • Mike

          I am not a hater. I am a Nokia fan as I have a Lumia 900 and N8… awaiting my 920… FYI

          • Trexus

            In Mark’s world, anyone that’s not as rabid as him is a “hater”.

    Awesome, awesome, awesome. Well done to Nokia and Elop, CMMC is a huge carrier with plenty of potential. I guess it uses CMMC’s TD-SCDMA network for data or even its new LTE network. It will be a big win for Nokia because Lumia is seen as a premium brand and a big entry into the China market after years of cheap S60v5 and S40 devices. Couple that with plenty of local apps and the 920T will be the next shiny status symbol.

    The iPhone 5 only works fully on China Unicom on GSM and HSPA. I don’t think it works on China Telecom’s CDMA/EVDO network. So the iSheep are at a disadvantage 🙂

      Easy there, don’t jizz too hard… >.>
