Samsung, Huawei, HTC and Nokia Hooking Their Phones into EE's 4G Network

By Gary Cutlack on at

As well as announcing details of its launch of the UK's first 4G network, Everything Everywhere's new EE brand has listed the first LTE mobiles we'll get to use over here. It could be Nokia's chance to shine.

EE has revealed plans to launch five phones as part of the initial 4G push, the high-end HTC One XL and Samsung's Galaxy S III, both of which are LTE versions of the hardware we've already got here, alongside the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE, another very useful Android model.

There's also rather surprising space for Nokia's two new Windows Phone 8 handsets in EE's 4G launch line up, with EE claiming to have an exclusive on selling both the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 on its 4G network. That's great news for Nokia, even though EE's making a bigger deal about the Galaxy S III in the above shot of its range.

Those of you not in the need of yet another mobile phone will be after one of EE's two 4G dongle options, with the Huawei E392 Mobile Broadband stick on sale for simple individual use, plus the Huawei E589 Mobile WiFi dongle available for generating your own superfast hotspots. [EE]
