Nokia has taken the wraps off its latest Windows Phone, the Lumia 925, but when and where will you be able to get it? So far we’ve heard availability details from Vodafone, O2, and Three. Vodafone seems to have bagged a nice little exclusive, as the network announced that it will be stocking a 32GB version of the handset when it officially launches next month.
Vodafone confirmed that it will be stocking the black version of the handset. The Lumia 925 will apparently be available on the network’s Red tariff, giving customers unlimited texts and minutes along with a choice of 1GB, 2GB, or 4GB of data.
O2 will also be carrying the phone. The company says that the Lumia 925 will launch on June 13th, and that it has an exclusive on the 16GB version of the phone in white. As for Three, a product portfolio manager took to Twitter to confirm that the network will be stocking the handset in the not too distant future. Exact availability and pricing details weren’t revealed, but there is a registration page where eager customers can sign up for further news.
EE, T-Mobile, and Orange have yet to make any announcements regarding the Lumia 925. We expect to see EE let slip some kind of information soon given that the handset has LTE connectivity on board, but we’ll have to sit tight until the network is ready to spill the beans. We’ll update with more availability information as it becomes public.
Update: Following word from Vodafone, O2 and Three, mobile resellers Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U have also got in on the action.
The new Nokia Lumia 925 will be available across both companies, although Phones 4U look to be the only ones to retain Vodafone’s special 32GB exclusive version on select plans from the carrier. Phones 4U has a long-standing relationship with Nokia, also being the first retailer to bring the Lumia 900 to market outside of the US.
Meanwhile, Carphone Warehouse’s Graham Stapleton has commended Nokia on the release of its new flagship stating, “The launch of this handset shows Nokia’s continued commitment to bringing innovation in smartphone cameras to the mobile market.”
