iPhone 4 Rival Alert : Cheapest Windows Mango Phone On Sale For £210

Until midnight tonight, price comparison website USwitch is teaming up with online retailer Expansys to bring the price of its LG E906 Jil Sander handset down to a rather low £210, using the code "jil90" at checkout.

Thought by some to be a refreshed version of the LG Optimus 7 (E900), the E906 appears to be LG's answer to Samsung's partnership with Italian design powerhouse Prada.

The phone itself is made by LG with the input of German fashion designer Heidemarie Jiline Sander. As such, it is described as a "luxurious smartphone" with premium headphones and textured surfaces.

It features Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 chipset, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a five-megapixel camera with AF and LED flash, HD video recording, DLNA compatibility, a 3.8-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen and a 1500mAh battery.

After the discount, the E906 is by far the cheapest Windows Phone Mango handset on the market, at around half the price of the Nokia Lumia 800.

At 12mm and 157g, the handset - which is exclusively available at Expansys - also features a microUSB port, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi but no microSD card slot as on all other Windows Phone handsets.

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.
