Nokia N8 Smartphone Available On £20 Monthly Deals

The Nokia N8 can now be purchased on a pay monthly package for as little as £20.42 per month on a two year contract; it is the first time that we're seeing a top of the range handset from any manufacturer being sold for so cheap.

The device is available from Buymobilephones (opens in new tab) on T-Mobile with 300 minutes, 300 texts and unlimited internet booster (with a fair usage limit).

Given that the phone costs £375 SIM Free, it means that customers will be paying around £4.50 per month for the tariff itself, which is pretty good.

The N8 is the current Nokia flagship (before the announcement of the N9 soon). It comes with a 12-megapixel camera equipped with Carl Zeiss optics and a Xenon flash.

It can record HD ready videos and display them on its 3.5-inch 640x360 pixels capacitive touchscreen display. There's a HDMI port, Symbian^3, Ovi Maps, Ovi Store, Wi-Fi and it is powered by a 600MHz ARM11 processor with 256MB RAM.

The phone is also available on an 18-month contract which proposes the same amount of minutes, text and data but offers a slightly lower total cost of ownership at £460.
