The Nokia Lumia 920 is due to be launched soon, and will be one of Nokia’s first handsets to showcase Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system. The launch of this phone has been delayed a couple of times already, which has resulted in many people eagerly anticipating its launch.
When the Nokia Lumia 920 does get released, it will be carried exclusively by Everything Everywhere in the UK. This is the network which runs T-Mobile and Orange, as well as being a network in its own right. Everything Everywhere is responsible for the launch of the UK’s first 4G network at the end of the month, which means that if you own a 4G compatible handset like the iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE, you will be able to take advantage of the faster web browsing and download speeds in many parts of the UK. Its set to roll out in number of major cities initially, but before the end of 2014, Everything Everywhere claims that 98% of the UK will have 4G coverage.
It is common practice for a high profile smartphone to be launched by one network initially, with others to follow after the period of exclusivity has ended. This was the case when the iPhone 4S was first launched in the UK, as it was only offered by O2. However, it is now available from all major UK networks.
Once the period of exclusivity has ended with Everything Everywhere, O2 will be carrying the device, according to a report on WPCentral. It is still not known which other networks will be carrying the Lumia 920, though interest is sure to be high as it is one of the most exciting smartphones from the Finnish manufacturer in the last couple of years.
An exact launch date for the Lumia 920 has not been released for the UK. Of course, there are plenty of rumours suggesting when this will be, and these range from mid October to the beginning of December. Once we find out more on this subject, we will be sure to let you know.
