After weeks and weeks of build up, many UK consumers were disappointed to learn that the Nokia Lumia 920, the Finns’ flagship Windows Phone 8 device, would be exclusive to EE.
But there’s good news for those on O2, Vodafone and Three, as we’re hearing that EE’s controversial Nokia Lumia 920 exclusivity is set to end in January 2013.
Yeah, if you’re in the UK and fancy the Nokia Lumia 920, your only choice (officially) at the moment is EE with its 4G-ness, and by extension Orange and T-Mobile.
However, Nokia has been rolling out a new template response on its UK Facebook page for customers dissing the exclusivity deal.
For examples, one guy bawls: “Locking Lumia 920 to one network in UK is an unwise decision.”
Nokia responds: “We have been listening to what our loyal consumers want and we have been working to make the Lumia 920 available from other retailers from January onwards. Keep an eye on the page for more details. Thanks”.
We’ve proposed that the whole Windows Phone 8 launch could’ve gone smoother. Heck, the Samsung ATIV S still hasn’t arrived. The WinPho crew is gonna have to crank it up a notch if they want to grab third place.
