Nokia Lumia 920 down to £20.50 a month

BuyMobilePhones.net is selling the Nokia Lumia 920 for as little as £20.50 per month on a two year contract with Orange. There's an initial outlay of £100, but that still makes for a total cost of ownership of £592, which compares very well with the £580 some online retailers are charging for the SIM-free version of the device.

Even if you end up paying a bit more, the cost is spread over two years, though this particular Orange plan (dubbed Panther 20) will only suit light users. It includes 100 minutes, unlimited texts, 500MB mobile data allowance, 2GB on BT Openzone Wi-Fi, the 'Orange Wednesdays' and 'Magic Numbers' specials, and one Swapable (Sky Sports Mobile TV or The Times, for instance).

As for the Nokia Lumia 920 itself, the smartphone was unveiled at the beginning of September. It is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-a-chip clocked at 1.5GHz and supported by 1GB of RAM, supports wireless charging for added 'wow' factor, and features a 4.5in, 1,280 x 768 pixel display with PureMotionHD+ and ClearBlack technologies.

It also sports an 8-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, full HD video recording, and comes with 32GB of on-board storage and a slew of other Nokia-only features, like Here Maps. Nokia also unveiled the Lumia 820 at that time, and more recently introduced the entry-level Lumia 620 - the cheapest Windows Phone 8 handset on the market.
