BUBBLY NETWORK O2 has started selling the Nokia Lumia 620 smartphone, undercutting other online retailers with its £149.99 pay as you go price tag.
The INQUIRER met with Nokia today, which boasted that O2's £149.99 price-tag makes the Lumia 620 handset its "most affordable Windows Phone yet". The cheap Windows Phone 8 handset is also available on pay monthly tariffs with O2, with prices starting from £18.50 per month, including 50 minutes, unlimited texts and 100MB of monthly data.
Nokia also told us that O2 will be selling the black Lumia 620 model, although it will be offering buyers a free coloured case for brightening up the pint-sized handset.
Three and Virgin Mobile won't be offering buyers such luxuries when they start selling the handset next week, however. Instead, those who sign up to a monthly tariff with either network will have to fork out "around £20" for its colourful interchangable covers.
If you're not too keen on any of these networks, Nokia has said the Lumia 620 smartphone will be available from more retailers in the coming weeks. Vodafone will also start selling the handset from 6 February, although there's no word on pricing yet. µ
