Exclusive: Nokia Lumia 920 Windows 8 Smartphone to sell for £240 at EE?

News has reached us that the Nokia Lumia 920, the company's flagship Windows Phone 8 smartphone which was launched in the latter months of last year, is about to be massively discounted. But only on EE, on pay as you go and instore.

A member of the popular deals website HUKD posted that the device has gone on sale for £240 plus a £10 top up credit. The phone is 4G compatible and is locked to EE, T-Mobile, Orange and Virgin Mobile. You can however, in theory, unlock it.

Other than the new mouth-watering price, what leaves us flabbergasted is that EE doesn't market itself as a purveyor of PAYG plans. Indeed, you can't find any mention of PAYG on EE's website and the shortest period you can stick to a SIM only 4GEE plan is still 12-months.

You can check out our review of the Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 smartphone here, one which was done last year when the price of the device went on sale for well over £500. Yesterday, we reported how Carphone Warehouse had dropped the price of the Lumia 920 to £400 unlocked.

Interestingly enough, you can get the Lumia 920 from as little as £20.50 per month when you pay £100 as an upfront fee on Orange, a price that hasn't changed since December 2012.
