Nokia's first foray into Handsets running Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 mobile operating system the Nokia Lumia 800 is to hit the UK with a £399 PAYG price tag, retailer Three has confirmed
With a Nokia Lumia 800 UK release date lined up for later this month, smartphone retailer and mobile network provider Three has confirmed it is to host the minimalist WP7 device for just £399 on a pay-as-you-go basis.
The first official Nokia Lumia 800 price, Three’s sub £400 offering sees the Nokia Windows Phone device land £100 cheaper than the lowest priced Apple iPhone 4S. Orange and Vodafone have also confirmed they will stock the Lumia 800 but have yet to confirm prices or tariffs.
Landing after months of speculation the Lumia 800 has adopted the same minimalist form factor bestowed upon the meeGo powered Nokia N9 with the injection moulded polycarbonate shell to be made available in black, cyan and magenta colour forms.
Sporting an 8-megapixel camera on the rear with a Carl Zeiss lens and 720p HD video recording capabilities the Lumia 800 stands out amongst the current fleet of Windows Phone 7 handsets with its sleek and stylish form pairing with a 1.4GHz processor, a 3.7-inch Clear Black AMOLED display and 16GB of internal storage.
