Earlier today Vodaphone UK posted a blogpost officially announcing that the Lumia 920 will be coming to them starting next year, and that they have begun stocking the 920. The Lumia 920 upon launch was tied to EE (everything everywhere- which from what I gather has no coverage anywhere); but it would seem that exclusivity deal will end with the year’s ending. Meaning the rest of the players get a jab at this Lumia goodness:
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.
Introducing the Lumia 920
Being able to stock the Nokia Lumia 920 is a real boon. It sits right at the top of Nokia’s new Windows Phone 8 family with a stunning 4.5-inch ClearBlack display, an 8-Megapixel PureView camera that’ll take some of the best shots you’ve ever seen, and wireless charging built in.
In my opinion this is how exclusivity deals should be everywhere, give one carrier the chance to sell the device as an exclusive for a limited period; then once they’ve capitalized on a device’s initial launch they can begin selling on other carriers to maximize sales.
