UK MOBILE RETAILER Carphone Warehouse has kicked off pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 930, ahead of its release on 17 July.
The Nokia Lumia 930 can be ordered over on the Carphone Warehouse website. The mobile retailer is offering the Windows Phone 8.1 handset in black, green and orange flavours, with rival retailer Phones 4u having an exclusive on the white model.
There are tariffs available on the EE, O2 and Vodafone networks, with the cheapest being a 24 month £30.50 Vodafone contract, which comes with a free Lumia 930, 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB of data.
For those after more data, O2 is offering unlimited texts, minutes and 1GB of 4G data for £33 a month, while EE is offering 2GB of data for £34.99.
However, if you pick up the handset on an EE contract, Nokia's free £130 bundle - which includes a portable wireless charger, portable speaker and a £20 Windows Store voucher - will not be included. Nokia did announce earlier this week, however, that all Lumia 930 handsets will ship with a wireless charger included in the box.
The Nokia Lumia 930 is the second phone, after the Lumia 630, to ship running Windows Phone 8.1, giving it support for custom wallpapers, Microsoft's Action Center and the firm's new Word Flow keyboard.
Besides its sofware, the Lumia 930 boasts a 5in HD 1080p touchscreen powered by a quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, along with a 20MP rear-facing camera, 4G LTE support and a 2,420mAh battery.
