Nokia Lumia 820 Available For Pre-Order In The U.K. Also, O2 Becomes First U.K Carrier To Confirm Nexus 4


U.K residents can get their hands on the yet to be released Google’s LG Nexus 4 smartphone from next month from O2. The Nexus 4 product page on the carrier’s website is now live, but no information regarding plans or contracts have been mentioned yet. The page only says Nexus 4 is coming soon in November. The Nexus 4 smartphone, which is the product of Google’s first collaboration with LG, is a powerful new device operating Android 4.2 and is powered by a Qualcomm quad core Snapdragon S4 processor and 2GB of RAM.

Google will start providing SIM free Nexus 4 smartphones from its Google Play Store for a price of just £239, which could mean that O2 will most probably provide the phone for free – with a two year contract. Also, the word is that O2 will have the exclusive right to provide Nexus 4 smartphones during the first month.

While Nexus 4 has Android fans covered, those eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 can pre-order Lumia 820 smartphones from Carphone Warehouse. The Windows Phone 8 device from Nokia can be yours, SIM free, for a price of £379.95 or you can opt for a contract with one of the three carriers, O2, Vodafone or Orange, with the option of paying £29 every month with no additional cost for the smartphone. As a bonus, the reseller is giving away a wireless charging plate for the Lumia 820 worth £45. The free offer is valid only until shipping beings.

Nokia Lumia 820 sports a 4.3 inch OLED display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The Windows Phone 8 LTE device is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, with 1GB of RAM. Additional features include, an 8 MP back camera, NFC, wireless charging and interchangeable back cover.
