Nokia Lumia 930 is now available in the UK from carriers and select online retailers alike
More than a week ago, we told you that the Nokia Lumia 930 was being prepped to launch in the Albion. Well, the time has come, as the Windows Phone 8.1-powered flagship is now available from select carriers, as well as from various online retailers. All devices come with DC-50 wireless chargers for free, which are worth well over £150 ($254). The available color options are black, orange, green, and white. The latter, however, is exclusive to Phones4U at the moment, where the phone retails at £439.50 without a contract. You can also snatch a green, black, or an orange Nokia Lumia 930 from other online retailers, such as Clove (£362.50), Unlocked Mobiles (£449.98), and Carphone Warehouse (£30.50 a month).
O2, one of the biggest UK carriers, has put a £479.99 ($820) off-contract price tag on the handset, while EE will also sell you the device without a contract for £349.99 ($597.37), but you'll have to hand in £10 upfront Pay-As-You-Go tax. The latter will also endow your Lumia 930 with a free portable wireless charger, a wireless speaker, and a £20 ($34.23) voucher for Windows Phone apps (provided that you order it prior to the end of July, that is). Meanwhile, Vodafone offers the Lumia 930 along with a 2-year contract, which requires users to hand in £43.50 each and every month. The carrier is also giving away said wireless charging plate and a MD-12 wireless speaker along with the device.

I love the black one specially, but orange aswell
This resembles, and has resemblance to the sexy, slick, stylish sharp edge corners of L925
Immensely let down by the Wp platform.
On Android, this phone would sell millions, near Galaxy and iPhone series. To bad running on Wp, this will not sell.

There is so much truth in this statement that it is painful. This looks like a beautiful device, but due to the shortcomings of WP these will not take off.
The apps are coming along but not at a proper pace. For instance, the most anticipated game of the year is Destiny and they just released their companion app; however it is only iOS and Android, and they specifically stated that they have no intentions of having it on WP.
Banking apps are still missing (which is vital), the games are catching up but at a very slow pace outside of Rovio, and the fact that there is still that major problem with multitasking; such that I had to see "Loading...." for longer than I intended to even be in the app for.
