Nokia N8 Goes On Sale In The UK From £25 Per Month

The Nokia N8 has been released for sale in the UK via the Finnish giant's online website and through mobile phone operators across the country.

There are currently four carriers offering the handset on a monthly contract - 3 UK, Vodafone, T-Mobile and O2 - with Tesco Mobile having it only on PAYG and Orange saying that it will come later.

Of the lot, Vodafone is, ironically, the cheapest when purchased from Tesco Phone Shop (opens in new tab) where it can be had on a two year contract with 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB internet browsing quota.

This is slightly better than the existing deal we picked up from Mobiles.co.uk, earlier this month which costs the same but offers much less.

Tesco even throws in 1000 free Clubcard points, worth £20 when exchanged for instore purchases. This is an online exclusive deal which is also a limited offer.

The supermarket giant also sells the cheapest PAYG N8 phone on the market from as little as £330, more on that here.

Over the past few months, the price of the phone itself has dropped down considerably and its outlook has improved as it moved from being a top-end handset to a mainstream model with an excellent 12-megapixel camera.
