iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Nokia Lumia 800 Now Down To £360

The price of the SIM Free/Unlocked version of the Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone smartphone has dropped to £360 at Ebuyer, a 10 per cent reduction, shortly after the handset officially went on sale.

It is not known whether the price drop could be due to the newly launched US-bound Lumia 900 which has a bigger screen and a front-facing camera.

We did notice however that the cheaper Nokia Lumia 710 was on sale at O2 for just under £200 making it the cheapest Windows Phone Mango handset on the market; that is a third off its original suggested retail price (although the one from O2 is locked).

The Lumia 800 comes with a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED capacitive ClearBlack touchscreen, a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon cpu clocked at 1.4GHz, an eight megapixel camera with flash and HD recording capabilities, 512MB RAM, 16GB onboard storage and an array of Nokia and Microsoft services.

These include Microsoft Office Mobile, Internet Explorer 9, Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps, Nokia Music, Mix Radio as well as Xbox Live, Zune and Marketplace.

Nokia will have a press conference on Monday February 27th at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and we suspect that they will unveil one new handset.

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.
