The Nokia Lumia 800 remains an excellent phone in its own right, though, and now you can pick one up in shocking pink for a knock-down price.
Head on over to Tesco Mobile and you can grab a Nokia Lumia 800 for just £140, SIM free. If the offer doesn’t stand out enough already, the handset is the magenta edition – that’s bright pink to you and I.
Factor in the Nokia Lumia 800’s aforementioned design brilliance, which includes a unibody polycarbonate shell that’s almost impossible to scuff (it stays the same colour throughout, like a stick of rock), and you’ll hopefully realise what a steal this is.
Still not convinced? How about the presence of a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED display? This produces far richer colours than your average smartphone screen, as well as much richer blacks.
All this and the phone is powered by a power-efficient 1.4GHz CPU. It also features an 8-megapixel camera complete with a physical shutter key – an all-too-rare inclusion among rival devices.
The Nokia Lumia 800 remains an ongoing concern for Nokia, too. While it currently runs on the excellent Windows Phone 7.5 OS, you can expect an upgrade to Windows Phone 7.8 soon. This will bring across many of the bold new UI elements of the Windows Phone 8 OS everyone’s talking about.
So, head on over to Tesco Mobile now and pick up a Nokia Lumia 800 in brilliant magenta.
