lumia 930

The Lumia 930 starting shipping to customers in parts of Europe earlier this week, and now it looks like the Windows Phone 8.1 device is close to going on sale in the UK.

Richard Devine, one of our many great staff members in the Mobile Nations family of sites, spotted a display at his local UK Carphone Warehouse location, which promotes the upcoming sale of the Lumia 930. The display showed that the SIM free price for the phone will be £479.95, which is about the same price that Expansys is charging for the pre-order of the phone in the UK.

The same display shows that the contract price for the Lumia 930 at Carphone Warehouse will be £99 up front and £28 per month. There's no word on a specific launch date for the Lumia 930 in the UK, but we would suspect that it will start shipping very soon, perhaps as early as next week.

If you live in the UK, do you plan to purchase the Lumia 930 and if so, is the no contract price low enough or will you get it with a contract?

Thanks again to Richard for the tip!
