New Delhi: Just a couple of hours before the launch in India, new Nokia Lumia phones have gone up for sale on an e-commerce site. The much-awaited Nokia Lumia 920 is now available on Saholic.com for Rs 36499, while the Lumia 820 is up for sale on the site for Rs 26499. Both phones run Microsoft's latest Windows Phone 8 OS.

The Lumia 920 is Nokia's new flagship phone. The lenses on its camera shift to compensate for shaky hands, resulting in sharper images in low light and smoother video capture, Nokia said. It can also be charged without being plugged in; the user just places it on a wireless charging pod. The Lumia 920 has a 4.5-inch display, 1GB RAM, and 32 GB mass memory.

The Lumia 820, on the other hand, is a cheaper, mid-range Windows Phone 8 phone. It doesn't have the special camera lenses, but it sports exchangeable backs so you can switch colors. It has a 4.3-inch OLED display, 1GB RAM, and 8 GB mass memory, support for microSD cards up to 32GB.

Nokia Corp. launched its first Windows phones late last year under the Lumia brand, as the first fruits of Elop's alliance with Microsoft. Those ran Windows Phone 7 software, which is effectively being orphaned in the new version. The older phones can't be upgraded, nor can they run applications written for Windows Phone 8.
