The Nokia Lumia 920 will be available through Telstra from "late November".

Telstra has announced Australian pricing for Nokia's hotly anticipated Lumia 920 Windows Phone but the device isn't expected to officially be available until the "end of November".

The telco announced today that the Nokia Lumia 920 will be available for $5 per month on Telstra's $60 Every Day Connect Plan over 24 months. The plan includes $600 worth of calls and MMS, unlimited text messages to Australian numbers and 1GB of data per month.

Additionally, the Lumia 920 is $0 upfront on Telstra's $80, $100 and $130 Every Day Connect Plans, all over 24 months.

Despite the pricing announcement, Telstra hasn't yet opened pre-orders for the Lumia 920 and says the device will be available sometime in "late November". A Telstra spokesperson told PC World Australia the telco "expects to commence pre-orders next week."

Telstra says interested customers can register their details online to be notified when Lumia 920 pre-orders will commence.

“We expect the Nokia Lumia 920 to launch at the end of November and we will be making it available in a range of colours that, combined with a polycarbonate design and rounded surfaces, sets it apart in the smartphone market," said Telstra's mobile director Andrew Volard.

First unveiled in September in New York, Nokia is banking on the Lumia 920 to turn around its flagging fortunes in the high-end smartphone market. The device will be among the first phones to run the latest version of Microsoft's mobile operating system, Windows Phone 8, which was officially launched today in Sydney.

The Lumia 920 has a 4.5in display with a 720p resolution, boasts a number of camera features including a new optical image stabilisation system and has a built-in wireless charging system.

Telstra confirmed the Nokia Lumia 920 will be available from in black, white, red and yellow colour variants.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
