Network partnership Everything Everywhere is reportedly in talks with Nokia over the LTE enabled Lumia 920, with the view of ranging the handset exclusively in the UK.
According to Financial Times sources, the Orange and T-Mobile mother ship is currently negotiating a deal with the Finnish manufacturer, ahead of the launch of its 4G network later this year – the first to become available in Britain.
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has confirmed that the Lumia 920 will be able to work on the 4G frequency Everything Everywhere plans to launch – although he didn’t comment on any possible deal between the two.
Questions answered tomorrow?
Interestingly enough Everything Everywhere has organised a press conference tomorrow morning, Tuesday 11, in London, where TechRadar will be in attendance to see it announce “exciting information on our new brand and the latest innovation in network technology.”
We pressed Everything Everywhere on information surrounding this event and today’s latest rumours, but the network promptly got back to us with a spokesperson telling us:
“we’re not commenting on rumours.”
Faked Lumia 920 ad
After apologising at the end of last week for the veracity of the video footage, saying sorry it had, “…failed to make clear that it was a simulation and not shot using the new PureView camera on the Nokia Lumia 920,” the Finnish company made a second statement earlier today regarding the stills in its Lumia 920 marketing material.
- pause the video at 27s and look into the reflection behind the girl. You’ll see a white van with a lighting rig and cameraman.
“Some further misunderstanding has arisen about still photographs taken at night in the street in Helsinki. We want to be very clear that these still images were taken from the same video [at the centre of the story]. [It] is a representation of the benefits of optical image stabilisation only and our apology was for using any part of the video without a clear disclaimer.”
The statement comes after the Nokia Lumia 920 was revealed at a tightly controlled event in New York last week. Nokia’s refusal to reveal a release date has led experts to claim that it will not be released ahead of key new competitors, including Apple’s iPhone 5 and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2.
