Users looking forward to the Nokia Lumia 920 might be shocked to learn that the device will be priced higher than the competing Galaxy S III, at least in the European market. To be fair, Windows Phone 7 and the Lumia 900 have performed better abroad than they have here in the United States, so this pricing could work.

For example, in Sweden, the Lumia 920 will sell, without contract, for around 5,700 crowns, whereas the Galaxy S III looks to get 4,515 crowns. Germany sees the Lumia 920 retailing for 549 euros and only 530 for the S III. Italy has the closets prices with the Lumia 920 coming in at 599 euros and the the S III at 530 euros.

 

While the two devices are rather similar in hardware, the Lumia 920 implements several new technologies which are likely driving the cost to manufacturer up. For instance, it features wireless charging, which isn't new, but building it into a device is. It also features a screen that works with gloves and fingernails. The phone is likely priced as low as they possibly can without affecting profit margins.
