Vodafone has officially announced it will be ranging the Nokia Lumia 920, as the handset breaks free from its timed exclusivity on EE.
Launched in Blighty in early November, the Lumia 920 joins its smaller sibling, the Lumia 820, as well as the HTC 8X and the 8S in Vodafone’s roster of 2013 releases powered by the latest Windows Phone 8 operating system.
The Red network said in a blog post: “A few weeks back we told you about how excited we are to be able to bring a selection of the finest Windows Phone 8 devices in early 2013, and now we’ve got a new phone to welcome into the Vodafone fold too.
“Already confirmed as heading to Vodafone in the New Year are the Nokia Lumia 820, the HTC 8X and HTC 8S. They’re a stunning set of Windows Phone 8 handsets, but one more can’t hurt, can it? With that in mind, we’re donning the party hats early in light of the news that we’ll also be stocking the Nokia Lumia 920.”
Nokia already revealed last week that its flagship kit would be landing on more vendors in the UK from January onwards. It’s only a matter of time before other major networks and retailers also confirm availability.
Although Voda did not state a concrete release date for the 920, we don’t expect the wait will be longer than a few more weeks. As for pricing, it’s most likely going to be free on pay monthly tariffs starting at £35 on a two-year term.
Stay tuned as we bring you more news and announcements for the Lumia 920 in the weeks to come.
