Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone Smartphone now on offer for £239

You can now own the Nokia Lumia 800 for as little as £239 from DigitalRev, an online retailer that imports grey products but promises not to charge any fees or taxes that may be levied.

The Lumia 800, which was unveiled last year at Nokia World, has since been replaced by the Lumia 820 and the Lumia 920 but according to one well-placed source, it will not be totally phased out until next year.

Part of the reason may be that Microsoft has not announced when Windows Phone 8 will go on sale, although it’s a safe bet to assume that it will happen just after the launch of Windows 8.

The Lumia 800 comes with Windows Phone 7.5 and won’t get an upgrade to WP8. Instead it will get Windows Phone 7.8, a cut down version.

It runs on a single-core Qualcomm MSM8255T system-on-chip clocked at 1.4GHz and comes with 512MB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, a 3.7in ClearBlack AMOLED display with a 800 x 480 resolution, an 8-megapixel camera with HD video and a gorgeous polycarbonate unibody.
