Orange clears out Nokia Lumia 800 for £160

The clear out of Windows Phone 7.5 models continues as Orange has now cut the price of the Nokia Lumia 800, its former flagship, to a mere £160 online - excluding a compulsory £15 top-up.

The smartphone was launched last year at Nokia World and has since been superseded by the Nokia Lumia 900 (launched in January at CES) and by the Nokia Lumia 820 and Lumia 920, launched at the beginning of September in New York.

It remains a decent mainstream smartphone, albeit one which is technologically inferior to most Android phones in this price range.

It features a polycarbonate unibody, a single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255T chipset clocked at 1.4GHz, 512MB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 3.7in 800 x 480 pixels AMOLED curved display with ClearBlack technology, an 8-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and the usual communication features.

The phone won’t be upgradable to Windows Phone 8, instead, the final upgrade will be Windows Phone 7.8, set to be released later this year. Nokia also bundled a few useful exclusive applications including Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps and Nokia Mix Radio.
