Carphone Warehouse Giving Free £50 Gift Card With Nokia Lumia 800

Carphone Warehouse is giving away £50 Gift cards from Debenhams (via their subsidiary Mobiles.co.uk) when purchasing the Nokia Lumia 800 with a two year contract either from Orange, Talk Mobile, T-Mobile or Vodafone; the monthly minimum cost of the contract being £30 per month on Talk Mobile.

That equates to a total cost of ownership of £720 with 750 minutes, 1500 texts and 1GB data. The phone was unveiled yesterday and is powered by a Qualcomm S2 Snapdragon SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, making it the fastest Windows Phone 7 handset on the market.

The rest of the specification reads as follows: a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, an eight megapixel camera with HD recording, a 1450mAh battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a USB port.

As for software, there's Microsoft Windows Phone Mango with all the goodies that it brings - Multitasking, Office Mobile, Xbox Live integration, Bing Maps, Internet Explorer 9 etc.

As expected, Nokia has bundled a number of its own applications to differentiate itself from the rest of the competition; there's Nokia Drive, Nokia Music, Nokia Store, Nokia Maps and a contacts app.

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.
