"Operators and retailers are throwing their weight behind our new Nokia Lumia smartphones, and we appreciate their continued support," Nokia Australia's managing director Steve Lewis said in a statement.

No pricing has been mentioned, but Nokia vows to update customers at the end of October, at the same time that Microsoft is expected to publicly release its new smartphone software.

The announcement of the Lumia 920 at Nokia World 2012 has created considerable interest in both the phone itself and Microsoft's operating system. A key feature of the 920 is optical image stabilisation in the camera, which should help achieve better still photos and less-shaky videos.

The Lumia 920 will also be the first Nokia-made phone to make use of Telstra's new 4G network capabilities.
