If you missed our Nokia spread earlier in June you’ll be happy to know Nokia’s latest flagship Windows Phone, and its last as a company unbeholden to Microsoft, finally went on sale in SA today. The Lumia 930, also known as the Lumia Icon over in the states, marries high-end specs with the newest version of Microsoft’s mobile OS, Windows Phone 8.1. Unfortunately, one of the major new features of the update — the addition of virtual assistant Cortana — isn’t available in the SA yet (officially, anyway).
At least those purchasing this beauty from Vodacom get a free wireless charger with every Lumia 930 purchase in recompense, and if you’re looking to spring for one right now, you also stand to receive an introductory accessory bundle. This bonus is only available from Vodacom’s online store and retailers before the end of September, or until stocks last, mind. Incentives are great and all, but before that, you still need to decide which of the many Lumia 930 dealers you want to do business with. Nokia has confirmed that the device will come in both black and white starting at R399 pm on a 24 month contract. Depending on your service provider of course.
