Personally I'd have preferred it if Nokia had a nomenclature like "Lumia 920 CDMA" or "Lumia 820 for T-Mobile".

I don't think the carrier marketing folks would like that.

Go back to the launch of Windows Phone 8... AT&T exclusively got the Lumia 820 (and advertised it with that word)... while Verizon had a very very very similar but not identical phone known as the 822.

If you haven't noticed it yet...carriers in the US like to tout exclusivity of this or that device... and having an identically named & speced phone takes away from that ability.
