Nokia Lumia 930 available for pre-order in Europe

The Nokia Lumia 930 can be ordered but you'll have to wait for it to arrive

The Nokia Lumia 930 (see our hands on with it) which was announced at this years BUILD, has been spotted over at Amazon.de and Amazon.fr as being available for pre-order, but it has no expected shipping date.

It retails at €579 ($793 USD, £471 GBP) which is a little pricier than what Americans are paying for it ($599 USD before taxes and subsidies) and is available in Black, Green, Orange and White variants. There's also no indication that Europeans outside of the UK will be able to take advantage of the free wireless charger, but you should keep an eye out for Nokia Promotions in your region (if available) which regularly puts up free goodies for Lumia owners of different handsets.

The full specs for this flagship device can be viewed below.

  • 5-inch screen Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) with 441ppi Gorilla Glass  3
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 800 quad-core 2.2 Ghz
  • Dimensions 137x71x9, 8mm
  • Weight 167g
  • Internal memory of 32 GB
  • RAM memory 2 GB
  • 20 MP rear camera with Carl Zeiss lens and OIS optical image stabilizer
  • 1.2MP front camera
  • 4 high-performance microphones for video recording
  • Battery 2420mAh
  • Support for integrated wireless charging

The Lumia 930 is the successor to the 925 and is based off the Lumia Icon, which has similar specs.

Is it pretty much confirmed that the Lumia 930 is NOT coming to the US? I really want a flagship WP device, but don't really want to get the 1020 if something better is coming (getting tired of my Galaxy S4), and the 930 would be perfect if it was actually coming to AT&T. I've also seen rumors about a possible Lumia 1820 (to replace the 1020, but I'm not sure how much truth there is to it, since it was rumored to be announced at WMC, which has come and gone).

A Co Worker has the Icon and he loves it. I am surprised that the Lumia 930 did not use the same back style as the icon does though. It looks very similar to the style they went with for the Lumia 928. very bland

Is the 930 really 5 inch ?mwhy on earth would the change the size of the 9xx series when they have other series for bigger displays...

Nice phone but I think they need to take a page from Samsung's playbook and redesign the back like the S5. Looks to plain the way it is now......

And yes, that was sarcasm.

Samsung should be taking note from Nokia/MS. The hardshell feel of the 925 was great and I suspect the 930 will be too. I can't imagine the materials any dearer than that that is used on the S4/S5.

It retails at €579 ($793 USD, £471 GBP) which is a little pricier than what Americans are paying for it ($599 USD

A little pricier? This is insane.
If it can be sold in America for 600 bucks, it can be sold in the EU for 500euro's.

Just because I'm born in the EU, does not automatically make me richer than Americans.
1 USD buys more food/drinks/other than 1 euro does.

That is excl tax though (The USD pricing). I paid €347 for my Lumia 925 but that's because I waited for the price to come down as well (and shopped around) :p

Yeah I know US does without taxes and we have them with. But taxes are around 21% throughout Europe, not the 45% I see in these pricings.

Also, again, 1 USD buys more then 1 EUR. Even though the Euro is technically worth more.... With that in mind, its even more expensive.

Which makes the Euro worth more on paper :p In real life it however...isn't.
For 1 EURO I have 2oz of cola if I'm lucky, usually its 2 euro for a can of coke.
For 1 USD I can buy a (#&*($#$^#) GALLON OF COKE.

Steven P. said,
Yeah cost of living doesn't really factor in on currency conversions.

Which they should.

I'm aware they raise the prices in our countries to make a little profit, so they can make a little loss on sales in poor countries. But many companies think like this or worse, and we end up getting shafted and our cost of living increased.

Solid phone, shame it doesn't have the glance feature, but many will probably get over that.
My only gripe would be no expandable storage.

No glance is a deal breaker for me. I use this feature all of the time. Can keep on eye on everything I want without touching the thing most of the time. So Nokia work for a year on bringing a feature people want to Lumia with great review, then release a flagship without it. Just stupid!
