Nokia Lumia 920 EE exclusivity to end next month?

Nokia Lumia 920 EE exclusivity to end next month?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.

It makes me think more and more WP8 will mess up their chance for 3rd place and silently, RIM will sneak in with their new phones next year and take it from under their noses.

Calling it.

What a load of... They wouldn't have just said to EE, "sorry guys, that exclusive deal - forget about it; our loyal customers are in tears. See you next time."
That exclusive was to run out in January, anyway. Spin spin spin.
The moment they announced the exclusive, they were criticised from all corners, and that happened before. Comments specific to some forum members have nothing to do with this....

Or EE had the option to continue it but realised they weren't getting anything from it's exclusivity and wouldn't stump up more cash even though it's the season for turkeys

@SpeedyG
Not many people like Blackberry now. I don't know 1 person who has a Blackberry or even likes them. I work for O2 and Blackberry have the most problems with build quality, lots of replacements. Also the operating system is a pain to sort out when problems occur.

I know a load of BB users.
And can you elaborate on the OS being "hard to sort out" issue? I have no idea what "sorting out an OS" means?! Do you guys usually shout at OSs to behave? What do you mean? :)

PSs?
Anyway who knows what the next bb os will be like, might not need sorting..
