Expansys is offering the Acer Allegro M310 for under £140. The smartphone is unlocked, unbranded and doesn't require the purchase of any top-up.
Like all Windows Phone handsets, it features a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the MSM8255 in this case, which is clocked at 1GHz and comes with an Adreno 205 GPU.
There's also 512MB of RAM, 8GB internal storage, a 3.6in 800 x 480 capacitive display, GPS, an array of sensors, Bluetooth 2.1, microUSB, a 5-megapixel camera with HD video recording and autofocus and a 1300mAh battery.
The Allegro M310 runs on Windows Phone Tango, weighs 126g and is a reasonable 12.9mm thick. Rivals in the price range include the LG E900 and the Nokia Lumia 710.
The latter is still the better option as it has a faster processor and Nokia's own array of free application like Nokia Radio, Nokia Drive and Nokia Maps.
