The ever so popular Nokia Lumia 800 this is a good for a Sim free phone. 1 was bought recently by a collegue and it was virtually like new and its been reduced further as he paid £249.99 for his.

There is also the £4.99 delivery charge but for just under £235 for this handset without any network branding its as good a deal as there is for the Lumia 800 i believe.

It might be worth waiting for the Windows Phone event tomorrow and see if this will be upgradeable to the newest version but still a good deal even if it's not.

hardware wise its likely windows 8 handsets will have far higher res screens, multicore CPU & GPU's, microsd storage and bluetooth 4 (low power) to name but a few ... even if by some miracle and/or hacking you can get win 8 on the win 7 handsets it will be a fraction of the experience of a true win 8 handset when they are out probably around year end

.. if you can wait probably best waiting but if you need a handset now then for these prices they are great handsets (my £150 LG optimus 7 kept me upgrading to an iphone for the last year or so its that good IMHO) .. cant wait for a win 8 phone if its mostly the same UI with better hardware and filled gaps (eg VPN for using wifi hotspots securely)

Really is anyone's guess until later tonight.

Either way, it's still a great phone. I'm another with the Optimus 7 and I really can't fault it - does everything I need.

Whereas Nokia Care say the opposite

It's all rumour and speculation.

I understand why you say that, but it's interesting that we have an expectation that devices like this will be upgraded with major new software versions when we don't have the same expectation about most other consumer devices. What does annoy me is when they're abandoned and left insecure because they don't get things like security updates. It remains to be seen whether WP7 will continue to get security updates when v8 is released, but Microsoft have a pretty good track record for this kind of support. As an iPad (1) owner I'm irritated because it looks like there's about one year of updates left in the device before I'm left to fend for myself without any more security updates. Feature updates have already become irrelevant for the device because it slows down further with every new iOS release, so major updates aren't always all good news.

Windows phone 8 event has started. Loads of long awaited features being lised! No info yet about current phones and if they will get the update.

http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/20/live-microsoft-windows-phone-event/

Multiple screen resolution support! WVGA, WXGA and 720p will be supported now.

The focus right now, for this fall, will be dual-core. Microsoft's main concern is efficiency and battery life.

MicroSD support.

NFC support.

WP8 will include Nokia's mapping technology built-in!
There will be offline map support, map control for devs, turn-by-turn and NAVTEQ map data.

Can't live without the customization of Android but will have a toy wp once a good one with wp8 goes into double digit prices if it is dual core level & certain apps are not missing for it any more so might be a couple of years for me. Even then my main would still be Android(s).

Windows Phone 7.8 coming for current phones then, not too bad as it's most of the new software features and UI.

Deal is only warm and to correct most folk in this thread so far is that the phone will be upgradeable to WINDOWS PHONE 7.8..Thats basically some of the power of the new windows phone but not things like new resolutions, nfc, multi core support, expandable storage, etc

http://www.theverge.com/2012/6/20/3096945/windows-phone-7-8-upgrade-no-windows-phone-8-existing-devices

I'm following the summit at the moment. Bar upgrade issues aside, Windows Phone 8 does look very good.

Warning people: Current Windows phones will not be upgradable to WP8, they will receive an update called WP7.8 which will bring UI changes but not core changes

It been mentioned above.

It is getting an update, to 7.8 but what that actually brings bar a new UI hasn't really been made clear. Obviously the new hardware features won't make it but IE10 etc. is unclear whether it'll come over.

As for the SoC and RAM, it's more than enough to run Windows Phone fluidly.

As for the camera, it's pretty average.

Its not really outdated... the next update Tango inst out yet and we going its going to get another update to Windows 7.8 that will bring more to the phone after that. Its got an easy year in it from now and its still a great phone that never crashes.

So its still a great phone and simple for many average people.

Speak as I find, my Nokia Lumia 710 is absolutely mint, rock solid, dead stable, really great battery life.

Plus my sister and a few other relatives have the Lumia 800 and they are chuffed to bits.

High End Models Nokia Lumia 800/900 are obsolete, due to kernel switch to WOA/Win RT as predicted 4 months ago on hotukdeals. The Nokia Lumia 900 must set a record for being obsolete already more or less at the same time as its UK release. The number of times its been said it would definitely be getting an update to WP8, it was obvious to anyone with knowledge of MS Platforms it never would.

Update to 7.8 is NOT an Update to WP8, don't be fooled, your buying a dead-end phone, if you buy this.

Windows Phone has been a complete marketing f*** up from the start, and it doesn't stop.

If you don't want an iPhone or Android. There really is no point buying any Nokia Lumia other than the Nokia Lumia 710, now - as a cheap phone to get you through until WP8.

In terms of phone depreciation (loss of value) to car depreciation, Nokia just became Kia.

So the residual values are actually surprisingly good? :p

More like a Ford tbh.

Anyway, I agree there's no point buying into WP7 now unless you get a very good deal on it, which this isn't really as bar the new UI MS hasn't said if there are any new features coming at all to 7.8, which there probably isn't now.
#29
Can't believe some of the retarded comments on here.

The 7.8 update will have the software update/tweaks but nothing to the extent of 8 as because what was mostly shown WAS ALL HARDWARE BASED.

To the muppet who mentioned Kia...Don't they have a 7 year warranty and one of the most reliable cars on the road at the moment?..Doesn't it also not share parts with Hyundai who's recent new i30 has the car of the year from carbuyer?..hmm.

Everything you buy is dead end tech as soon as you buy it.

If you get a good deal on any phone, you take it regardless.

In respect to the deal itself. It's a good deal if you can put up with the hardware restrictions. Software wise, as good as any...Won't find an modern day mobile OS much quicker.

yeah banksters, real robbers, bb network provides them infrastructure for trading info aka fast illegal insider dealing. Non Android systems are good in one way as they don't need a huge time to find and setup the suitable modded ROM but once setup,pita, half a million apps sure do help specially the main big favorite ones. But in future wp, easy as pie, will become indispensable besides Android.

Sadly for you, Muppets will be around a lot longer than this phone. We now KNOW this is dead end tech though, thats the difference.
Its still £230 on a phone that won't be able to run WP8 native Win RT Apps. Yes, it will run WP7 Apps, if new WP8 Apps are made backwards compatible, but WP7 has such a small market share, WP8 Developers will just move on, especially if WP8 takes off. It was a stepping stone of a phone for MS, they used it for what they needed and moved on.

Far better to buy a cheap Nokia Lumia 710, if you want WP7.

That's because WP8 brings in a lot of hardware changes that the current phones can't make use of so they get 7.8.

It's not any different from what Apple do, it's not as if the 3GS is getting the full iOS 6 update.

Who in their right mind is going to buy a Nokia Lumia handset today in the knowledge that a better operating system is coming along in a few months’ time, which they can’t upgrade to?
