Windows Phone 8 Lumias Launching Soon in Jordan (Rest of Middle East Too?)

| January 14, 2013 | 10 Replies


Nokia Jordan just posted this picture on their Facebook page accompanied with the caption “they’ll be here soon”….are you ready?”. Assuming the shoelaces represent the amazing everyday Lumias (at least the color scheme does); then they should be talking about the 920, 820 (and hopefully the 620). This is a big step for Nokia seeing how the first generation of Windows Phone devices never landed in the Middle east (except for a year late launch in Lebanon); the reason being the lack of Arabic support on WP7 devices.

The rumored launch date is January 22nd, but there’s nothing solid to back that up.

There is no price set currently, but some of the shops here who have grey market 920s are selling them for 550 JOD or about $770; so hopefully the price should be somewhere between 450-500 (about $630) which doesn’t sound too bad.
