Nokia Lumia 930 US release date desire

If you were waiting for Nokia’s next superphone after the Nokia Lumia 925, it looks like the company will give everyone what they want with the impressive Nokia Lumia 930. It features some fantastic specs, not to mention shipping with Windows Phone 8.1 too.

There may be some disappointment in the air though. Consumers are slowly starting to find out that the Nokia Lumia 930 US release date may not happen for a long time.

You should be reminded that the recently released Nokia Lumia Icon is exclusive to Verizon in the US. The Lumia 930 is essentially the global version of the Icon and as a result a US release may not happen.

Verizon has an exclusive deal with Nokia on the Lumia Icon and Big Red will not want to see any competing new Lumia smartphones on other networks. If you were waiting for the Nokia Lumia 930 AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile release, we’re afraid to say that you are going to be waiting a long time.

As you can imagine, this is bad news for those that don’t want to buy the Icon on Verizon. One user as highlighted above has even voiced his displeasure by saying that he will pick up an iPhone 6 from Apple instead.

The Nokia Lumia 930 is looking like a truly awesome phone. With this in mind, let us know if you are disappointed that it doesn’t appear to be coming to the US, due to the Lumia Icon exclusive on Verizon.

I would have gone to the store and already bought a 930 if it was available in the U.S. on T-Mobile. If Windows wants their US market to grow they need to give more high end phone options, outside of Verizon.

just buy an unlocked version, it costs about the same as a new iPhone will.

IPhone 6 is going to get all the money that was going to be spent on the Nokia 930. At least all of mine…..

Grrr. I hope Microsoft stops this habit of doing carrier-exclusive releases here in the US. For a platform that desperately needs more users, this seems stupid. And many of the existing WP users are loyal fans, so doing carrier-exclusive deals is a big slap in the face, especially when you change which carrier gets the exclusivity deal!!!! When Apple was still doing carrier-exclusive deals with the iPhone, they weren’t stupid enough to switch major carriers. If AT&T lost interest in the exclusivity deal, the smart thing to do would be to just release on all of them. This would be… Read more »

I’ve owned a lumia 900 for almost 2 years now. Ever since the galaxy s4 came out I’ve yearned for a windows phone with similar specs. Its highly dissapointing that after 2 YEARS, my only option is to either dump AT&T or go with the latest greatest 5″ android. Boo Microsoft. Boo Nokia.

Hell yea I’m mad. And frustrated. I want a windows phone that can match or beat the s5 and iPhone 6 this year that I can use with t-mobile. So many ppl are having problems with the icon on t-mobile. Having the 930 in the US wouldv been an amazing thing. I dont hate mi 920, I jst want the 3rd column of tiles.

I’m happy with my 1520 but they should’ve gotten both green and orange in the beginning. That’s the only thing that pisses me off!
