Nokia launches Lumia 920T for China Mobile

Nokia launches Lumia 920T for China Mobile - read the full textThe Nokia Lumia 920T is, reportedly, the first Windows Phone 8 smartphone to reach China and that's a thing to take pride in. But with a customer base of over 700 million, China Mobile is also the world's biggest carrier so the launch of the Lumia 920T there may also be a life-saver for the ailing...

Does anyone know if the Nokia 920 (not the 920T version) sold in China will be restricted to the Chinese version of MarketPlace (yes, they are selling both versions here)? This is the case with Android phones - in that Android phones sold on the legitimate market can only access the Chinese app store - which is heavily restricted on what apps are available (i.e. apps like Facebook etc aren't even available). I want to get one of these phones here, but concerned it will be locked to the Chinese marketplace. Could always get one on the grey market (usually the HK or Taiwan model) but that can be a real pain. Any insight is greatly appreciated, and sorry if this seems like a stupid question.

Cheers

China edition. Otherwise known as the Big Brother edition. The PRC government needs to be sure they can access everyone's phones to spy on people.

I see this a more innovative in-terms of hardware compared to any of the recently released flagships... WP8 is yet to catch-up - I agree but this is right step forward rather than being copycats...

China market 90% sales is android. Why China Mobile brand wants a windowsphone??? Better make an agreement with samsung for new samsung galaxy s4 !!!. Nokia no sales, no app, no market.

Well, i bet MANY will buy it. It already have thousands of advance orders in taobao webstore even price and availability is not fixed yet.

What I wonder as non chinese (even live in china), that does 920T support only Chinese 3G, or also European ones. Earlier Nokia's China models did not support EU or US 3G networks. Also interested to know about LTE support.

It will be interesting to see who will buy this phone for 4599 RMB. Way too expensive for my liking.
