Nokia Lumia 800 smartphone on sale for £140

The Nokia Lumia 800, the Finnish company's first Windows Phone 7.5 smartphone, which was launched just over a year ago, is currently on sale at Tesco (on Tesco Mobile) for £140 on PAYG, down from £318. Tesco will also triple any top-ups and will give triple Clubcard points for every £1 top-up.

For those looking for a different network, the phone is also available from Dialaphone on Vodafone, T-Mobile, O2 and Orange for £144 plus an extra compulsory £10 top-up.

The Lumia 800, which has since been superseded by the Lumia 820, 900 and 920, comes with a 3.7in AMOLED display with an 800 x 480 pixel resolution, ClearBlack technology, a unibody polycarbonate chassis, a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 system-on-chip clocked at 1.4GHz, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, an 8-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens, Bluetooth 2.1 and a microUSB port.

The smartphone also comes with some exclusive Nokia content like Nokia Drive, which is a free turn-by-turn, voice guided navigation app, Nokia Music with free cloud-based storage, and a number of other apps courtesy of Microsoft's Windows Phone 7.5. Note that, unfortunately, the phone won’t be eligible for a Windows Phone 8 upgrade.

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.
