Nokia Lumia 920 UK release date now November 2

Nokia Lumia 920 UK release date now November 2This whole Windows Phone 8 launch has been decidedly murky, with the finer details of the operating system remaining a mystery till the eleventh hour, and release dates being vague at best.

“Where the handsets be at?” is an entirely valid question at this stage. Well, we’re now told that the Nokia Lumia 920 in particular will arrive on November 2. Heck, that’s this Friday.

That’s the good word according to the ladies and gents at Pocket-lint, who’ve been speaking directly to the Finnish manufacturer.

A November 2 release date for the Nokia Lumia 920 would in fact be one week earlier than the date mentioned previously i.e. November 9.

As we heard on Monday, the Nokia Lumia 920 will be exclusive to EE (and Orange and T-Mobile) and Phones 4u in the UK.

On Everything Everywhere, you can grab the Nokia Lumia 920 for £129.99 up front, with 500MB and unlimited minutes and texts for £36 per month (24 months). That’s a total of £993.99.

The priciest 24-month plan extends data to 8GB, reducing the up front cost to £19.99 but increasing the monthly tariff to £56. That’s £1,363.99 total.

Interested? Check out the rest of the EE Nokia Lumia 920 prices right here. Phones 4u, meanwhile, invites you to register your interest.

Wait, so on EE the Nokia 920 is £129 upfront with 500mb data? Is that on 4G?

This page says that the iPhone 5 is £109 upfront with unlimited data? (3G)
Both on £36 a month

When shown the two options, which do you think the average person on the street will choose? Nokia may continue to struggle with this one

12 month plans seem really good value actually:

Unlimited Minutes
Unlimited Texts
3GB Data
Wifi (BT Openzone, no details on how much)
£56/month
£19.99 for the Lumia 920
Buy through Phones4U for £50 Quidco

TCO: £641.99

The phone is £459 to buy outright, so that makes it £15.17/month for that service plan, which would be pretty good for a 3G network, never mind a 4G one. Genuinely tempted - I'd definitely buy if I was in a 4G area.

The Nokia is £129 upfront on EE. You're comparing Apples to Oranges here. The iPhone 5 on EE is £179.99 on the same tariff on the same network.

Certinfy  Oct. 31, 2012 at 13:13

I actually really wanted this but for those prices AND exclusive to EE? Hahahaha good luck selling that Nokia!

Ah, my mistake, since EE is Tmobile and Orange combined together then I assumed that the Tmobile tariffs would be the same as the EE ones.

How very confusing this EE business is, ive had to spend quite a lot of time with friends and family expalining that "no they are not on 4G now just because their iPhone 4 says EE in the corner"

But that outright price will drop. And yeah it could be good for that service plan but how many really need unlimited calls for them it might be worthwhile, it's not for me. 3gb data v unlimited on 3 even on p&go....

4G does include tethering though I think, unsurprising when the amount is limited I guess.

Is it not possible to get the 920 with a plain old 3G tariff then?

All this bigging up of the Lumia 920 when they have priced it out of most peoples budgets. I just want to vent my frustratiuon at how Nokia are hell bent on destroying themselves. I have always been a loyal Symbian owner but seeing as Nokia has destroyed the on going progression of Symbian i have been forced to look at their new high end phones without Symbian. The main reason for this is the brilliant Nokia Maps. So i was looking forward to trying out the new Nokia Lumia 920 because of the maps mostly. Well i've just found out they have made it exclusive to EE and it will only be on a 4G network, 3G is fast enough for me. And the monthly rates are absolutely stupid as you have to pay 49 pound up front then pay 41 pounds a month for only 1 gigs of data when you can get a Galaxy S3 with unlimited data for 31 pounds a month without any upfront fee and the hardware specs are perhaps even slightly better albeit for the camera. So why are Nokia pricing themselves out of most peoples budgets surely to god they should be discounting this hugely to try and sell a few phones, but no they have almost gone out of their way to make this phone not sell at all. I really am starting to think there is sabotage going on. Add to the fact it has no SD card expansion, no native Divx,Xvid playback, things the S3 has. Why are they trying to emasculate themselves when over 2 years ago they made a phone with HDMI connection,Divx,Xvid playback,SD card expansion the Nokia N8, now their new flagship phone lacks all these.

These monthly prices are just stupid how will they ever get back market share when they price themselves out of most peoples pockets, sigh.

EEs leaflet says orange and tmobile will be stocking it but doesn't give details of pricing.

Going from the One XL pricing, possibly around £20 on the t-mobile full monty £36/m tariff.

Nope, I just called EE. Though 3G will still work on a 4G tariff.

Pondlife  Oct. 31, 2012 at 15:40

Weird as they are selling other 4g capable phones on 3g tariffs

gayab  Oct. 31, 2012 at 16:25

You could always buy a sim-free phone from Phones 4 U, and then use any sim-only (or PAYG) tariff from any network.

Dan0910  Oct. 31, 2012 at 17:09

I wanted to get this phone but the prices are out of this world, outrageous I'd say. Just wait a few weeks till they realise what they've done and NOKIA will surely lower down the prices by at least £100. If not, well, that'd be a forever goodbye Nokia.

Where have you seen that they have sim free 920 phones to sell?

Pondlife  Oct. 31, 2012 at 18:54

820 apparently coming with free wireless charging shell (otherwise sold at £55!)
http://www.modaco.com/page/news/_/windowsphone/nokia-lumia-820-ships-with-free-wireless-charging-shell-r880
http://www.nokia.com/gb-en/products/wireless-charging/

And they have a more upright charging stand that I was thinking better in that other thread.

Mind you just seen that the 820 is £380 sim free ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! fooooooook
http://www.modaco.com/topic/358677-nokia-lumia-820-priced-at-37999-sim-free-in-the-uk/#entry2043337
Though that's with the charging plate too from cpw. Even then though I'm thinking they've priced this to keep them in stock a while....

Nokia Lumia 920 is gonna shake the UK mobile market with its new features.

Pondlife  Nov. 1, 2012 at 10:57

Yeah I bet the other players are quaking at this aggressive pricing......

Or is it going to fail because of the silly EE exclusivity?

Wrong. It will be sim-free but still locked to EE

Lunatics at Nokia who want to destroy themselves have made this phone priced out of most peoples budgets. Sticking it exclusively with EE so you have to still pay 149 pounds up front to just get it for 36 pounds a month and thats only with 1 gigs of data. What are these imbeciles playing at practically making the phone a niche product when they are trying to keep afloat. Do they enjoy hurting themselves because this makes no sense whatsoevr when you can get a free Galaxy S3 with unlimited data and 5000 mins of call time and 5000 texts for only 29 pounds a month. Rip in peace Nokia you muppets.
