It's an improved Lumia 920." This is the Lumia that will turn Nokia and Windows Phone around. I'm super-serious you guys!

The article (emphasis in original):

This is the Lumia that will turn Nokia and Windows Phone around.

The GP:
This is not an iPhone killer and only Apple with Steve Jobs mystique can be a one-phone company.

You:
Right. Nokia has a full Lumia portfolio across a broad range of price points. The 928 is just the flag ship.

It is obvious that one phone can't turn around Nokia, and this is what the GP pointed out.

Windows Phone 7 devices are still being sold and represent a third of Nokia's Lumia shipments last quarter. They are being marketed and sold around the world as a low cost strategy. The Lumia 505 in Mexico and the 610 in Europe/Asia are examples of this.

Indeed, and we see that in countries like Italy where Nokia still enjoys strong sales that there is a higher proportion of WP7 Lumias than elsewhere.

If Nokia were smart they'd release this internationally.

I think Nokia today lacks the resources and incentives to offer to do worldwide launches on all carriers.
