Ethnic MVNO Lebara has signed a global partnership agreement with Nokia to deliver handsets to its customers worldwide. The first devices will be sold in the UK from the beginning of October. The handset range will include the Nokia 1616, 100, C1-01, C3-00 and the 500 models. The entry price of GBP 24.99 per handset will include a GBP 10 call credit. Initially, the Nokia C1-01 handset bundle will be available in Tesco stores across the UK. Handsets will also be available from other UK retailers, including Carphone Warehouse. The Nokia handset bundles are expected to be rolled out across Lebara Group operating countries over the coming weeks. The handsets will be available through a range of national retail chains including El Cortes Ingles in Spain. DataSelect will be the UK handset distributor in 2011, while Brightpoint will distribute the devices across all other markets. The handsets will feature Lebara variant software, enabling a Lebara network lock and access to Lebara data services in each country. Additionally, the mobile phones will feature Lebara's own branding and an AR Rahman commissioned Lebara ring-tone on each device.
