O2 lists Lumia 920 on website, announces February release
We're not ones to go with the saying, "We told you so." But, well, we told you so. All you hungry consumers who are O2 UK customers can now relax as the Lumia 920 is heading to O2 this month. The UK mobile operator has listed the flagship Windows Phone on the official website, also revealing a February release (though no exact date has been provided).
We previously touched on the company and Nokia's Windows Phone back in October when a support representative from O2 revealed that the Lumia 920 would indeed be heading to O2 at some point in the future. We were sceptical at first because support staff generally do not have access to future company plans and EE still held exclusivity over the Lumia 920. But then it just made sense.
O2 has become Microsoft's premium partner in the UK for Windows Phone. The mobile operator has a healthy line-up of hardware from HTC, Nokia, Samsung and soon Huawei - it's definitely the place to go for all your Windows Phone needs with the variety of handsets available. The Lumia 920 will join the likes of the ATIV S, 8S, Lumia 620 and Lumia 820.
What's more is the Lumia 920 is 4G ready, which means the Windows Phone will be able totake full advantage of O2's upgrade to LTE. Pricing hasn't been announced just yet, but we'll bet that the handset will be available on contracted plans, starting from £13 (with upfront fees) to £34 (without the immediate fee).
To recap on the specifications of the Lumia 920, should you be looking at this Nokia Windows Phone, we're talking dual-core 1.5GHz chip, 1GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 4G, Bluetooth, wireless charging and the 8.7MP PureView shooter (with FFC).
