Three UK to sell Nokia Lumia 800 for (just) under £400

Three UK to sell Nokia Lumia 800 for (just) under £400Several UK networks will carry Nokia’s first Windows Phone effort – the Lumia 800. It was unveiled last week at Nokia World in London, and Stephen Elop boldly declared it and the Lumia 710 as the “first real Windows Phones”.

Various contract options have popped up already, but Three Mobile appears to be the first to offer the Nokia Lumia 800 on PAYG.

That’s good news if you don’t want to be tied into a lengthy contract, but even better news is the price. Three Mobile will offer the Nokia Lumia 800 for £399 on PAYG.

That’s significantly cheaper than the host of other goodies that’ve appeared in recent weeks. The iPhone 4S, for example, starts at £499, while the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is expected to go for somewhere in the region of £500-550.

The Nokia Lumia 800 has a 3.7in AMOLED display, 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM and 16GB internal storage. It’s expected to land within the next few weeks.

If you’d rather go down the contract route, you can check out various Orange and Vodafone options at Carphone Warehouse.

Intersting, very aggressive pricing there although I still dont think this is a high end smartphone

Absolutely, stelph! The nice bodywork aside, what does it offer?
And being a Three prepay device it'll be sim-locked and branded. For £400 I could buy an SGS2, a Sensation XE, a Bold 9900, a 16GB iPhone 4... No hesitation.

PS wait a couple of weeks for Belle, and buy NokiaKs own X7 - 4in screen, mass-storage, and a hundred bucks cheaper!

Personally I prefer the look and feel of the C7, which is essentially the N8 in a slim and subdued case, plus its freaking cheap as now the updated (and mostly not required) 1Ghz version is out.

Its a shame there arent more apps/services out that support NFC tho, I am the most sceptical person around with regards to using it as a credit-card replacement, however I can see real potential for its use as a replacement for location services that dont rely on the battery draining GPS to work, for example this app for Android:

You can read about it in the link, but essentially its a wy of programming a response from your phone when it comes in contact with the NFC "sticker", so you could have one that is in your casr that turns on Bluetooth/car mode/GPS automatically (and one to turn them all off again), one at home to sync with your network that visitors could use, on your bike to activate your favourite excercise app etc.... Veyr clever stuff

Sorry I realise this is hugely off topic, but JanSt/Mod started it :p
