So you’ve decided that Windows Phone 8 is for you. Maybe you’ve seen our Nokia Lumia 920 hands on and read through our Lumia 920 vs HTC 8X comparison and decided to go for Nokia’s flagship. Nokia unveiled the Lumia 920 last month with an impressive feature list including an impressing PureMotion HD+ screen with advanced multi-touch (it works with gloves!!), PureView camera, Qi wireless charging and of course the Windows Phone 8 OS.
Since the launch of Windows Phone 8 on Monday evening, we now know more about how to get hold of the Lumia 920 so here’s the info you need. As we revealed previously, EE has network exclusivity – likely because they have the only operational UK 4G network – which means you’ll be using EE’s network if you want a Lumia 920 on contract. However you’ll also be able to buy the handset from Phones4u, who have retail exclusivity on the Lumia 920.
The Nokia Lumia 920 will launch on EE on November 9th and is available on a range of plans, all with unlimited minutes and texts. For the low data user, the Lumia 920 costs £49 upfront with a £36 a month contract (with 500MB data). As the Lumia 920 features 4G, we’d recommend you go with a higher data allowance so the ideal plan cost £46 per month (3GB data) and a £19.99 upfront cost.
Phones4u will launch the Lumia 920 later this month (most likely after it launches on EE) and will offer Nokia’s WP8 flagship for £19.99 upfront with a £46 per month plan. For those who want either the Red or the Yellow Lumia 920, Phones4u have complete exclusivity on the colours (they won’t be available from EE direct) meaning you’ll have to buy it through Phones4u.
