HTC Windows Phone 8S goes on pre-order for under £15 per month

Other than the odd name, the HTC Windows Phone 8S seems to be a great mainstream smartphone with an entry-level price tag.

The handset is on pre-order at BuyMobilePhones for a mere £14.66 per month on a two-year contract on T-Mobile with two plans available - Small Internet and Medium Internet.

The original price of the contract is £15.50 but comes with a £20 automatic cashback. The first plan bundles 100 minutes, unlimited texts and 250MB data while the second one has 50 minutes, 250 texts and 750MB data. In both cases, T-Mobile will not charge extra should the user go beyond the allocated data allowance.

As for the phone itself, it was unveiled only a few weeks ago. It comes with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-chip (the Krait-based MSM8227 clocked at 1GHz), 512MB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage (with a microSD card slot), a 4in Super LCD display with Gorilla Glass and a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, a five-megapixel camera, with LED flash and 720p video recording, Beats Audio technology, and a 1,700mAh battery.

The phone is the cheapest Windows Phone 8 smartphone on the market SIM-free, with a starting price of £217.

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.
