Nokia Lumia 920 exclusive to EE and Phones 4u in UK; Nokia Lumia 820 also loves O2, Carphone Warehouse and Tesco

Nokia Lumia 920 exclusive to EE and Phones 4u in UK; Nokia Lumia 820 also loves O2, Carphone Warehouse and TescoThere’s a fair bit going on in the world of mobile at the moment, so you’ll forgive me for cramming two newsbites into one article.

As detailed in that rather lengthy headline, we’re getting more word on the Windows Phone 8-rockin’ Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 – specifically which networks and retailers they’ll be available from.

Starting with Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 flagship, the Lumia 920, we’re told that the 4.5in smartphone will be exclusive to EE (Everything Everywhere) and Phones 4u in the UK.

As for the more modest Nokia Lumia 820, it’s heading to EE and Phones 4u, too, with O2, Carphone Warehouse and Tesco also joining the launch action in November.

Phones 4u claims a further exclusive in being the only retailer to offer all colours for both the Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820.

Nokia promises that both the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 are on their way to the UK from the factory, though pricing hasn’t been confirmed – even at this relatively late stage.

Good luck Nokia, just cut down on potential sales..

The Noknok 920 link says that it has micro sd, just an error?

Loosely translated as... Vodafone and Three won't touch Nokia handsets with a barge pole? Certainly wouldn't surprise me with Vodafone after all of the work they did with the Lumia 800 launch.

Wouldn't mind knowing prices now tbh.

Hmmm good point hadn't really picked up that the 820 is only on two networks.

lumia 920? yes please. only on EE? - no thanks, not at those prices. another potential customer gone I'm afraid.

Pondlife  Oct. 29, 2012 at 20:09

Was going to say what prices, then realised you just mean the 4g contract prices, good point, though I presume it's available on 3g tariffs too.

Thanks Nokia, I was in a bit of a dilemma whether to go for the Lumia 920 or Samsung Ativ S. My decision is going to be much easier now.

Nuts.
Bye bye, Elop

Was going to get the 920, really looking forward to Nokia build quality and great sat nav again. Would be worth the phone price but not the hike in tariff I'd face by changing to EE.

Anyone any idea if tied to network in Germany too, if not buying sim free from Amazon.de could be an answer..

If everyone are not happy about EEs pricing, go and get it in phones 4 u. They offer the phone unlocked and to your network of choice.ill be getting the best looking phone lumia 920.better specs,smooth and run like butter.:-)

Ah now come on, having an agreement with a single network was a strategy that worked really well for that other company called, erm, what was it (hand? fist?), so im sure limiting it even more to a single REALLY BLOODY ANNOYING shop will be shown as a masterstroke of marketing genius

Pondlife  Oct. 30, 2012 at 12:12

I thought you meant Apple with o2 for a while, was trying to work out the hand?fist? bit. Doh!
Makes even less sense than that Palm idea though as people can get other wp8 phones elsewhere....

Well not really one shop as EE stores will be selling it as well as p4u.

On that line the EE booklet says that the white 920 is exclusive to 4gEE implying that the others might not be.

JanSt / MOD  Oct. 30, 2012 at 13:07

it worked for nobody. Apple's situation with the first iPhone was different. But I'm too bored to go into that AGAIN :p

The 920 isn't exclusive to EE. It's been really badly worded. It's available on EE, Orange and T-Mobile - an Everything Everywhere exclusive. The PoS in P4U and EE stores is clearly displaying this. The P4U PoS said 'Free from £36/month' with EE, Orange and T-Mobile ticked off under networks. No further pricing details available yet, so not a brilliantly organised launch. They did have dummy units in P4U though, and I must say the 8X feels very nice! The Lumia 920 isn't as big as I was expecting either - some previews made it out to be a bit of a brick.

Pondlife  Oct. 30, 2012 at 17:47

Well the white is according to EE's booklet.
Bloody ought to be free upfront for that much per month...

It's the smooth design. I recently realised that my N9 is almost the exact same size as my old HTC HD2. I thought the HD2 was much much bigger. N9 and it's offspring are very sleek - in a can't-put-my-finger-on-why sorta way.
Wonder who's getting the 920 in Ireland.

satchef1  Oct. 30, 2012 at 18:12

The 8X is the same - probably more so. I was reading Anandtech's review and he pointed out that the phone is actually 10.6mm deep, a good bit more than the S3 and iPhone 5. It doesn't feel it though. It feels stunningly thin, like nothing I've ever picked up. Something to do with them putting the battery between the screen and PCB, allowing them to taper the edges a lot more.

Pondlife  Oct. 30, 2012 at 18:16

I'm betting the dummy doesn't have the same weight as the real one though. And is smaller screen for the size than most.

Was playing with phones earlier too, and the razr i feels great to hold, pity we got the i.
