Video: Nokia Lumia 920 exclusive to AT&T for six months

AT&T is rumored to be planning to launch pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 920 this coming Sunday. So far, the high end smartphone, running on Microsoft's Windows Phone 8, has only been announced for AT&T in the US. Now a newly leaked training video states that the Lumia 920 won't be available for any other wireless carrier in the US for some time.

The video, posted by WPCentral.com from an anonymous source, states near the beginning of the clip that the Nokia Lumia 920 will only be available via AT&T for the first six months after its launch. AT&T also had an exclusive on the Lumia 900 in the US when it launched in April 2012.

The video above shows the basics of the Lumia 920, and the site has posted up two more AT&T training clips that show off the device's wireless charging capabilities, along with its Nokia exclusive apps such as City Lens.

Officially, neither AT&T nor Nokia have commented on a specific launch date for the Lumia 920, but it is expect to go on sale sometime in early November. Pricing for the Lumia 920 has also yet to be announced by either company.

if you reduce your potential available market on purpose youre never going to gain marketshare, its simple math really.

Think. I'm sure this was a give-us-exclusive-access-to-the-phone-or-we-won't-carry-it-at-all deal. I'm sure it was in Nokia's best interest to do this.

I hope the Lumia 920 arnt all Glossy so far a lot of them have a very glossy look in the videos
From what I've gathered, the (still unannounced, I think, cyan), black and grey will be matte while red, yellow and white will be glossy. I can't remember where I read it, but has to do with manufacturing why some colours are/need to be glossy.

Not sure why people are acting so surprised, this isn't the first phone to be exclusive to a carrier. HTC One X on at&t comes to mind. Just get what's on your carrier, move to at&t or get another OS entirely. Not rocket science.

Great there goes the one phone I wanted.

same here.... I wanted one for verizon!!! att's coverage sucks in my area and verizon works everywhere around here ;-(

I don't understand this decision.
Why not just make it available to all carriers?
Several of my friends want one of these on launch but are on sprint, verizon, etc.

1) Sprint doesn't care about Windows Phone.
2) Carriers have more power than manufacturers and can demand exclusives if they want cooperation with manufacturers (otherwise your phone doesn't get sold).
