The Nokia Lumia 930 may soon become available through O2 Germany for a lower price. The carrier will reportedly be offering the Lumia 930 for 519 which is lower than the around 550 expected price of the device in Germany.
The Nokia Lumia 930 has already been posted for pre-order in the country (along with France) but the expected shipping dates haven't yet been confirmed. Previously it was speculated the Lumia 930 will ship around June 19 but that now looks like July 10.
Pre-orders for the Lumia 930 have also launched in Italy for the even higher price of 599 through Microsoft's online retail channels.
This puts the Windows Phone 8.1 handset at a disadvantage against devices like the HTC One (M8) or Samsung Galaxy S5 as they have improved chipsets and cost a little less. And as Microsoft scrambles around with the release there are even QHD droids about to land.
