£300 Nokia Lumia 820 smartphone: Finally a big price cut for this Windows Phone handset

Nokia launched a pair of Windows Phone 8 handsets back in September in New York. The Lumia 820 was the cheaper of the pair with an SRP of around £400. Since then, its price has fallen down significantly, perhaps fuelled by similar price drops from better competitors like the HTC Windows Phone 8X or the Samsung Ativ S.

The Lumia 820 is available from eBay from a retailer called Ruscommobile for £300 with free delivery, £10 free credit and 300 Nectar points. Note that the phone is locked to O2 and is brand new.

The handset is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon system-on-chip clocked at 1.5GHz with a 4.3in ClearBlack display sporting a 800 x 480 resolution.

There’s also 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, with a microSD card slot, an 8-megapixel camera, Windows Phone 8, Nokia City Lens and a number of other apps from the Finnish manufacturer.

It would be interesting to see whether prospective customers consider the price difference between the Nokia Lumia 620 and the Lumia 820 to be reasonable enough to justify paying £150 extra for the latter. Check out our review of the Nokia Lumia 820 here.
