Meanwhile, the Lumia 925 will also be available through T-Mobile beginning on July 17, for $49.99 down and 24 monthly payments of $20. For those not familiar with the Lumia 925, it’s essentially another iteration of the Lumia 920 (much like Verizon’s Lumia 928), except that its has a thinner build that features metal parts and only 16GB of onboard storage. It also has a new burst photo mode called SmartCam, though that will not remain exclusive to the Lumia 925, as its expected to come to other Windows Phone 8 Nokia handsets as part of the upcoming Amber Update.
