Terrapin Leather Lumia 925

It’s hard to find a single person who isn’t super stoked when they finally get 4G on their network. Vodafone New Zealand started rolling out their 4G network this past February. It started in Auckland and Christchurch, but has slowly been expanding. It’s now launching in Palmerston North. As part of that launch, customers on Vodafone NZ can soon pick up a new Nokia Lumia 925 to enjoy that high-speed connectivity.

Right now if you have a Lumia 820 on Vodafone NZ you can enjoy the 4G network as it lights up in select markets on both the North and South Islands. But coming soon, is the Lumia 925.

The Nokia Lumia 925 is one of the most unique and elegant offerings from Stephen Elop and co. Its aluminum unibody construction makes the device stand out amongst most smartphones, including its polycarbonate siblings like the Lumia 920 and 1020. We don’t have a firm date for when you can pick it up on Vodafone NZ, but we’ll let you folks know when we learn more. Looks like Vodafone is shaping up to be the carrier to get Windows Phone love in New Zealand. Just last week we learned that Telecom New Zealand designated the Lumia 920 as end-of-life (EOL) and won’t be getting the Lumia 925 after it “failed network testing”.

Anybody down there grabbing one? Check our review if you’re on the fence.
