Scared off commitment and want a Lumia 920? Starting from November 13th you’ll be able to pick up a sim-Free 920 If your in the UK. Clove will be stocking the handset and it will be 4G compatible so you’ll be good to go if you want to use one of EE’s delayed sim-only plans.
The sim-free Lumia 920 will cost you £520 ($826) which is very expensive considering the Nexus 4 starts at £240 and is arguably the better phone but for your hard earned cash you do get the latest Windows Phone 8 handset which has a 1.5GHz processor, 4.5-inch 1280 x 768 display, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and built in wireless charging.
Only just with a slightly lower specification than the Lumia 920, Nokia announce the Lumia 820. This will be Nokia’s mid-range phone but it’s still got a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch display, 5-megapixel camera and 8GB of storage which can be increased by a microSD card.
Going back to the late 90′s, Nokia are reintroducing exchangeable covers for the Lumia 820.
When released the Nokia Lumia 820 will be available on T-Mobile and AT&T.

If you owned a Nokia phone in the late 90′s – early 2000′s your phone probably came pre-loaded with the game Snake. Snake would give you literally hours of gaming pleasure and although it was not a multiplayer game, people would become highly competitive with their friends trying to beat each others top scores.
Now Snake is making a reappearance as Snake 2K for current Nokia Windows Phones. Snake 2K keeps to the same formula as the old skool game, feed your snake and try to control it while it grows incredible large.
Snake 2K is in the Windows Phone Marketplace for 0.79p and is available for the Nokia Lumia 610, Nokia Lumia 710, Nokia Lumia 800 and the Nokia Lumia 900.
