Nokia N8 Price Drops To £20 Per Month

The Nokia N8 is currently the Finnish manufacturer's top of the range smartphone, replacing the N900 and getting some great reviews for its superb camera.

The handset is currently available from Tesco Mobile - not the first network you'd think off - from a mere £20 per month on a two year contract, a clear sign of of how far Nokia (and the MVNO) are ready to go down in price to capture marketshare.

The package includes 750 minutes, 5000 texts, 1GB data as well as clubcard points. The phone itself offers a 3.2-inch 640x360 pixels capacitive AMOLED touchscreen wtih Gorilla Glass (that's less than half the resolution on the iPhone 4), Symbian^3 operating system, 256MB RAM, HDMI & USB ports, GPS, Wi-Fi, built-in FM radio, and 16GB onboard storage.

There's also a front facing camera, an ARM11-based system on chip from Broadcom clocked at 680MHz, a 12-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, a Xenon flash and the ability to record in HD videos.

At the beginning of the year, Tesco cut the price of the device to £299.97 while the SIM-free version was available for £375 on Nokia's online store.

Previous £20 contracts for the Nokia N8, which appeared at the end of January - included only 300 minutes, 300 texts and internet on T-Mobile.
