Vodafone launches Windows Phone 8 collection in UK
British carrier Vodafone has started to <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278802==http://blog.vodafone.co.uk/2013/02/06/windows-phone-8-launches-at-vodafone/" rel='nofollow'>offer</a> a number of Windows Phone 8 devices on it's network in the United Kingdom. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278803==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/10/04/nokia.flagship.wrapped.in.mystery.even.as.release. nears/" rel='nofollow'>Nokia Lumia 920, Lumia 820</a>, and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278804==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/12/05/budget.handset.keeps.nfc.adds.dual.shot.back.cover s/" rel='nofollow'>Lumia 620</a> is joined by the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278805==http://www.electronista.com/reviews/htc-8x-rogers.html" rel='nofollow'>HTC 8X</a> and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278806==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/10/12/colorful.midrange.windows.phone/" rel='nofollow'>8s</a> for the carrier's WP8 launch, with only the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278807==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/08/29/first.phone.to.run.microsofts.latest.mobile.os/" rel='nofollow'>Samsung Ativ S</a> making a notable absence from the device roster. <br />
<br />
The collection of smartphones, as claimed to be supported by the network in a blog <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278808==http://blog.vodafone.co.uk/2012/10/30/windowsphone8/" rel='nofollow'>post</a> in October, covers a wide breadth of customer types. <em>The Next Web</em> <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/278809==http://thenextweb.com/gadgets/2013/02/04/vodafone-commits-to-windows-phone-8-with-the-launch-of-five-new-nokia-and-htc-smartphones-on-february-6/" rel='nofollow'>notes</a> that the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X covers the high-end market, with other devices filling in the gaps lower down the pricing ladder. Vodafone does appear to be slow in adding WP8 smartphones to it's catalog compared to other UK carriers, with Three offering four of the handsets, O2 supporting three plus the Ativ S, and 4G network EE offering the Lumia 920 and 820 only, but it makes up for it's delay in having the widest choice of phones using the mobile operating system.

The Nokia Lumia 920 will cost &pound;42 ($66) per month, the Lumia 820 and HTC 8X at &pound;33 ($52) per month, and the HTC 8S at &pound;21 ($33) per month.
