Nokia Lumia 920 coming to KPN in the Netherlands during the first week of 2013
11 second television commercial in India was telling those watching to get ready to switch to the Nokia Lumia 920. Also expecting to launch the device soon are carriers in the Netherlands. There, the operators have been taking pre-orders for the phone, expecting to ship them sometime next month. One carrier in particular, KPN, has a more precise launch date. On its website, KPN says it will have the phone available in the first week of January 2013. The carrier is giving you the phone free with your signature on a two-year pact for 25 EUR a month ($32.98 USD). That plan, though, is pretty light with only 1000MB (slightly less than 1GB) of data at 7.2Mbps, 250 minutes of SMS and unlimited KPN to KPN calls.
Vodafone Netherlands and T-Mobile Netherlands are both among the carriers taking pre-orders with the former selling the device for 119.98 EUR ($158.27 USD) with their recommended plan. That price requires you to get locked up with the carrier for two-years. So which country is next to release the Nokia Lumia 920?

250 minutes of SMS and unlimited KPN to KPN calls??
Shouldn't that be 250 minutes of KPN to KPN calls and unlimited SMS??

No it is 250 minutes+sms, and unlimited calls to other KPN operator phones.
They see 1 sms as 1 minute.
And KPN sucks because you lease the phone, and when your contract is finished you have to return the phone to KPN or you can buy it but for the market price of that time your contract ended. So lets say after 2 years when you contract is ended the Lumia is worth maye 150 euro's or something. So you can buy it for 150 euro's
That why KPN sucks, they are thieves! At the end you pay way more. So if you buy the phone off contract with a sim only contract you are way cheaper!

They are still alive because ther are the biggest provider in the Netherlands, Mobile, Internet, Telephony, Digital TV ant other stuff.
But the lease thing they introduced last year, and also they lost a lot of customers.
