Buy A Nokia Lumia 800 From Orange, Get A Free Xbox 360 Console

Orange is giving away a free Xbox 360 gaming console (the 4GB model) with the purchase of a Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone Mango.

Orange says that it has only a limited number of consoles, which are worth around £120 a pop, and confirms that the deal will be valid on 18-month or 24-month contracts.

The offer is valid between the 16th and the 30th of November and only Orange pay monthly customers on an existing 12, 18 or 24 month plan AND eligible for an upgrade will be qualified for the deal (check more terms and conditions here).

The users will have to choose either an 18-month or a 24-month contract on one of the four Orange Animal plans and play a £10 deposit when preordering the Lumia 800.

It's not the first time that Microsoft is actually giving away free Xbox 360 consoles. Earlier this year, it had a promotion where its gaming consoles were given to US students who purchased a computer costing more than $699.

The handset was released yesterday by Nokia at Nokia World and appears to be a tweaked version of the Nokia N9. It has a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 3.7-inch WVGA Contour screen with ClearBlack technology, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and more.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
