Cheapest Nokia Lumia 800/710/610 Phone Prices

Looking for the Cheapest Nokia Lumia 800/710/610 Phone Prices?

As of 30 September 2012, the price of the Nokia Lumia 800 mobile phone, the former flagship of the Nokia Lumia Windows mobile phone range has dropped massively in the UK at some mobile stores making the Lumia 800 one of the cheapest smartphones available.

While Carphone warehouse are still selling the Nokia Lumia 800 for £379 sim-free the price has been reduced to £149 at O2 stores and to £159 at Orange shops and Sim-free for £179 at Phones4U. These reduced prices are in advance of the new Windows phone 8 release in oct 2012 with the new Nokia Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 models announced.

The cheapest Nokia Lumia 800 that I have found is £129.99 from Phones4U when you upgrade a PAYG SIM that has credit on it. So if you have an old Sim lying around then use it to get a cheaper upgrade. The phones sold by Phones4U are unlocked so can be used on any network. The Sim free cost is £179 or with a PAYG deal the Lumia 800 costs £159 plus £10 airtime credit.

That is a saving of over £200 compared to the price at Carphone Warehouse and the previously charged price before Oct 2012. The Lumia 710 and Lumia 610 have also had their prices cut but the Lumia 800 now appears to be the best value of all the Nokia phones.

Presumably Nokia are keen to clear their shelves prior to the release of the new phones and hence the price cuts on the Lumia 800. Various articles online refer to price cuts on the Lumia 800 of around 10-15%, these Lumia price cuts are far more dramatic and are of the order of 60% dropping the Lumia 800 price below that of the Lumia 710 and 610 models.

As a sign of how drastic these Lumia price drops are, I also saw a Lumia 800 for sale in a second hand store for £230 and on Ebay they are still being sold second hand for £150+. Crazy when they are now that price new!
