Nokia Lumia 1020 gets UK release this week
The flagship Nokia Lumia 1020 has been a highly admired Windows Phone handset and is already available on AT&T in the US. There are likely to be many potential customers for this phone in the UK and now we have heard that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is to get a UK launch this week.
If you’ve been waiting for the Lumia 1020 then you may feel it’s been a pretty long wait since the phone was first announced. It won’t be too much longer though as the phone will go on sale in the UK on Thursday September 12th.
Following this it shouldn’t be too much longer until it launches for other parts of Europe. The news came via a Nokia UK tweet, which didn’t make much of a fanfare as it merely said, “Nokia Lumia 1020 + UK = this Thursday.”
The UK price for this camera-centric smartphone hasn’t been announced yet, but we’ll give that information once we hear it. You may want to check out our article from several weeks ago about the Lumia 1020 on O2.
