Nokia and Everything Everywhere to tie up a Lumia exclusive?

My my, the formerly pink and orange telecom has been busy recently. Two weeks ago it successfully got rid of a chunk of its 1800MHz spectrum to Three UK, which could only mean it had more than it ever needed for LTE. Now, hot off the heels of announcing it received permission from the European Commission, the FT has reported that Nokia have been in talks with Everything Everywhere for an exclusive for a possible November launch for its Windows Phone 8 handsets.

Although Stephen Elop confirmed that the Lumia 920 would be able to use the reallocated LTE spectrum, we doubt that Tuesday will see a Nokia-related announcement.

It doesn’t take a genius to play with the wording and come up with New Brand. It could be just the company rebranding themselves and all the current Orange and T-Mobile stores, plus further details of their 4G rollout.

Nokia 920 - More bad news
The life of a fanboi - part 2!

    did a child write this? “thumbs-up to the JV”, “we can only hope to see the ridiculous EE name itself to disappear”, “Nokia have been in talks with Everything Everywhere for an exclusive for a possible November”

    Its pretty obvious this event will have 0 to do with the new Nokias. Why would Orange/T-Mobile hold a seperate event for something that even Nokia couldnt annoucne? And then open stores to only sell 2 phones? What a horrible article.

  • Seriously what the hell is going on with this site lately? Its such blatant Nokia bashing and bias these days? You want the EE name to change more than owning a Lumia 920/820? Give me a break. Years back I discovered this site and it was a refreshing slice of mobile news with decent coverage. Now its a shadow of what it was populated by articles that struggle to hide the lack of interest in anything but Android and iPhone.

    All 3 have pros and cons and Nokia are trying to stand out from the crowd. Either acknowledge that or stop putting out garbage like “Lumia 920 – more bad news” regarding the mono audio. Out of all the tweets that were put out you run an article on that? He basically said the Lumia 920 performed better than the 808 in some areas!! Its lazy writing.

    I own products with all 3 OS’s running on them and I for one am not coming back to this site.
