Nokia Lumia 920 4G coming to the UK this year!
One of the features stuffed inside the Nokia Lumia 920 is a 4G connection for turbo internet speeds on the go. Since there are no running 4G networks in the UK right now, it seemed like one we wouldn’t be able to take advantage of. But according to reports today, Everything Everywhere could be blessing British Nokia owners with 4G speeds this year!
According to two Financial Times sources, Everything Everywhere (the merged T-Mobile and Orange) has secured an exclusive on the Nokia Lumia 920 4G model in the UK, and it could go live this year. That’s because Everything Everywhere has been given approval to turn on its 4G network this year by regulatory body Ofcom, while rival networks have to wait until next year.
That gives Everything Everywhere a huge head start on 4G in the UK, and the Nokia Lumia 920 a real USP in a crowded smartphone market. There’s an elephant in the room though: Apple’s iPhone 5 launching on Wednesday is expected to support 4G too, and possibly the 4G frequency Everything Everywhere will be using.
We should know more by the end of the week: Everything Everywhere is hosting a press conference in London tomorrow, where it’s expected to reveal lots more about its 4G plans. Stay tuned.
