If you were looking to preorder the new Nokia Lumia Icon, you should probably map out the closest Microsoft retail store locations. Microsoft announced earlier today that the Lumia Icon is available for preorder immediately at Microsoft retail store locations and will hit store shelves and the Microsoft online store Feb. 20.
Customers who purchase a Lumia Icon before March 16, 2014, at Microsoft retail store locations and the Microsoft online store will receive a free Nokia Wireless Charging accessory valued between $49 and $69.
“The Microsoft retail stores are excited to offer our customers the new Nokia Lumia Icon for purchase,” said Kelly Soligon, senior director, Marketing and Experiences for Microsoft retail stores. “Microsoft retail store customers not only get access to this great new Windows Phone from Nokia, they also have a chance to customize it from top to bottom and receive a complimentary, personalized setup session with a Microsoft retail store associate.”
The Nokia Lumia Icon offers a 5-inch, HD, reduced-glare display and a 20-megapixel camera sensor that features Nokia PureView technology and ZEISS optics. With four high-performance mics and Nokia Rich Recording, the Lumia Icon captures HD video while reducing background noise. Powered by the latest version of Windows Phone 8, the Nokia Lumia Icon comes with Live Tiles, which let you pin your favorite people, apps and more to your Start Screen for updates you care about and a phone that is uniquely yours. Windows Phone 8 also offers more than 220,000 apps with about 500 new apps added daily. For a more dynamic experience, the Lumia Icon phone pairs great with the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet, also available at Microsoft retail stores.
The Icon will be available for $199 for new Verizon customers or for existing customers who are eligible for an upgrade with a new two-year agreement.
