BUBBLY MOBILE OPERATOR O2 has revealed that it will offer Nokia's Lumia 720 smartphone that was announced at MWC last month.
The Nokia Lumia 720 is the latest addition to O2's Coming Soon webpage and sits alongside the higher profile Samsung Galaxy S4. O2 has yet to reveal pricing for the Nokia Lumia 720, but has said that it will be available from April in both red and black.
We already know, however, that the Nokia Lumia 720 will fetch around £300 SIM-free, courtesy of online retailer Clove, which also said it will start shipping on 1 April. This seems to suggest that the handset will fetch around £300 on O2 pay as you go and is likely to cost around £20 a month on a two year contract.
The Nokia Lumia 720 is Nokia's slimmest Windows Phone yet and was unveiled along with the Lumia 520 - the Finnish phone firm's cheapest Windows Phone handset.
Despite measuring 9mm thick, the Nokia Lumia 720 features a decent-sized 4.3in WVGA screen with Nokia's Clearblack display technology onboard. This is powered by a dual-core 1GHz processor and the phone runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system.
The handset also features a 6.7MP rear-facing camera with Carl Zeiss optics and HD video, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, 8GB of internal storage expandable via microSD card and the usual array of connectivity options - Bluetooth, WiFi, HSDPA.
