If you do not fancy the Nokia Lumia 710 - the cheapest Windows Phone mobile in the country at £140 - but still want to experience Microsoft's mobile operating system, then consider the LG Optimus 7 E900, which can now be had from Expansys for only £148.
The phone is unbranded and unlocked and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 clocked at 1GHz, a slower chip than the one on the Lumia 710.
It does however have a twice the onboard memory (16GB) and a bigger battery capacity at 1500mAh.The rest is pretty standard, a five megapixel camera with AF and LED flash, DLNA compatibility, a 3.8-inch 800 by 480 pixels capacitive touchscreen display, HD video recording, GPS, Microsoft Office, Bing, Xbox Live, Zune and Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.
The Lumia 710 still has the upper hand when it comes to the extra featrues luke Nokia Music, Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive and Nokia contracts transfer, free applications that can only be found on Nokia's smartphone.
