Starting in January 2013, Nokia Lumia devices will be more widely available in the UK. The flagship Nokia Lumia 920 will extend to Vodafone, Carphone Warehouse, Three UK & will also be distributed to independent retailers from Micro-P. The Nokia Lumia 820 will also be available from Vodafone for the first time.
This is the third episode of The Nokia Blog’s weekly Nokia news. This one mentions Nokia World a lot. With just a few days to go, Nokia fans are probably really excited! Check out the video after the jump (with a little blooper at the end).
The UK is not getting the Nokia N9 either. This follows on from yesterday’s news that Nokia N9 isn’t coming to North America. Check out the official statement after the jump.
Three from the UK just published a video giving their sneak peek of Nokia’s upcoming smartphone, the Nokia E7. They also mentioned it’ll be available on their network early 2011. That’s certainly different from Nokia’s promised release of December 2010, so some of you may be disappointed. Three pointed out the features that stand out on the E7 over its younger brother, Nokia N8, such as the bigger 4-inch Clearblack screen and the slide-out keyboard. Take a look.
Nokia and Crisis, the national charity for homeless people in the UK, are awarding tickets to see Coldplay live to the top 12 fundraisers through the Virgin Money Giving event. You have 11 days from Friday, 3rd December 2010 to raise as much money as you can for Crisis and work your Christmas socks off to get into the top 12 fundraisers by the closing date on Monday, 13th December.
Nokia UK have teamed up with Grazia magazine and Lady Geek TV to give away a Nokia C7 each week. It’s already the second week, but it’s not too late join the fun. For this week, you just need to go to Lady Geek TV’s Facebook page and complete the quote, “If I were locked in a cupboard with a Nokia C7…” Winner will be picked at random and announced every Thursday.
There are five new 15-second TV advertisements for the Nokia N8 to broadcast in the UK. Two have broadcast already, but the rest are online for your enjoyment. There’s one about the Nokia N8′s HDMI-out capability and others about the thousands of apps available at the Ovi store. Check them out after the jump!
Nokia UK just uploaded an updated version of the Nokia N8 ad which will begin to broadcast tomorrow evening during X Factor. The 40-second ad’s message is “It’s not technology, it’s what you do with it.” I definitely like this edited version than the previous one, because the new ad actually shows the Nokia N8 smartphone front and center.
Reuters just reported that Apple has sued Nokia in Britain, extending their patent disagreements outside the US. Their legal battle started last October when Nokia sued Apple in the United States. A spokesman for Nokia said the recent claims are based on patents already in suit between the two companies in the US.
Nokia has been buying Google Adwords to reveal the release date in the UK. The ads in question say the Nokia N8 is in stock and ready for dispatch on September 23rd. They also included that the UK will have it one week before anyone else. The ads forward to nokia.co.uk/n8 but the pre-order button is yet to be seen. Perhaps they went up prematurely.
