PRESS RELEASE

Vodafone has confirmed its Windows Phone 8 line-up including the latest devices from Nokia and HTC. There are also two ‘4G-ready' handsets within the range - the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820.

Srini Gopalan, Consumer Director Vodafone UK: "We're pleased to announce that from today our customers in the UK can get their hands on a wide range of Windows Phone 8 devices. We know there is a lot of interest in both the Windows Phone experience and the range of smartphones that use it. As well as providing consumers with a personalised experience, designed to keep them closer to what matters most to them in their lives, Windows Phone also helps business users stay in touch with the office wherever they are. Two of the Windows Phone 8 devices we are launching today also form part of our growing range of ‘4G-ready' handsets. Anyone who buys one of our ‘4G-ready' phones will be good to go as soon as Vodafone 4G arrives."

Vodafone's 4G network will bring customers ultra-fast internet and the best ever Vodafone mobile video experience. Once a customer has got their new phone, we'll let them know the moment Vodafone 4G is available in their area, and we can then talk about adding Vodafone 4G to their monthly plan.
