Unlocked Nokia Lumia 920 available in UK for only £459 from Phones4U

After weeks of evasive behaviour by Nokia regarding full pricing of the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 in the UK, we finally know how much both devices will cost without a contract. Our favourite (and the best) UK Windows Phone retailer, Phones4u, is now selling both Nokia Lumia devices off-contract.
The SIM-Free Nokia Lumia 920 is available for £459.95. It is available in black, white and red variations on-line. Most stores currently have black and white versions only. The lesser Lumia 820 is a hundred pounds cheaper at £359. It's only available in black at present and we are unsure as to whether any interchangeable shells are available yet. £459 is a lot cheaper that what we initially suspected the Lumia 920 was going to cost SIM-free, but it still almost double what is being asked for in the US.
Ok, let me clear up a couple things: Both devices can be purchased unlocked /SIM-free or whatever you call it in your part of the world. Basically, you buy the device, pop in a Virgin, Vodafone or whichever SIM card and it will work. Phones4U were able to confirm all of the above. We also suspect that people who use non-EE SIMs will be able to enjoy 4G LTE once it's available on their chosen network.
I looks like the information we were given by the Phones4U sales assistant we spoke to was wrong after all. The Lumia 920 and 820 are being sold SIM-free, but locked to EE (Orange or T-Mobile). Whilst you can order the devices on-line now, you can't buy them from Phones4U stores just yet. Apologies.
