HTC Windows Phone 8S now available from £10.50 per month

Before the Nokia Lumia 620 arrives towards the end of January 2013, the cheapest Windows Phone 8 smartphone is the HTC Windows Phone 8S and this smartphone is on offer at BuyMobilePhones for a mere £10.50 per month on a two year contract with an upfront fee of £70.

This is by far the cheapest contract we managed to track for this handset with a total cost of ownership of £322, around £100 more than the cost of the handset on its own. The deal include 100 minutes and unlimited texts with no internet access, ideal for a light user that has access to Wi-Fi.

As for the phone itself, it is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-chip with 1GB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage (with a microSD card slot), a 4in 800x480 Super LCD touchscreen with a layer of Gorilla Glass, a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and HD video recording, Beats Audio technology and a 1,700mAh battery.

The HTC Windows Phone 8S (check out our hands-on) was released at the same time as its bigger brother the HTC Windows Phone 8X, a few months ago, during a built-up that culminated in the official launch of Windows Phone 8 towards the end of October.

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.
