Nokia Lumia 925 on sale in Germany; includes clock on standby screen

Nokia has been cranking out the new Windows Phone-based Lumia smartphones lately, such as the budget priced Lumia 521 from T-Mobile and the high end Lumia 928 from Verizon. Today, the company announced that the latest addition to the family, the Lumia 925, is now on sale for the first time in the world

Nokia's official blog says that residents in Germany are the lucky folks to get the first shot to purchase the Lumia 925. You can check out our recent hands-on preview of the phone, which is based on the Lumia 920 but is much thinner and lighter thanks to its all metal body.

Nokia also announced that the Lumia 925 will be the first of the series to add a clock to the phone's standby screen, apparently at the request of many Lumia users. The clock is part of the Nokia Glance Screen, which will soon be made available for all of the company's Windows Phone 8 smartphones.

Nokia states:

The Nokia Glance Screen also notifies you when your battery level is low, and you can switch on a night mode for reduced glare in the dark. Double tapping the screen will make it easier to unlock the phone, even when the phone is on a wireless charging stand, car holder or on the table.

Nokia has not yet announced when the Lumia 925 will be released in the US but it will be offered by T-Mobile when it is launched.

Look out for our review of the 925 coming shortly right here on Neowin.
