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)

Remember these are 'Refurbished' phones and "may have minor cosmetic marks" and "*User guides, USB/Data cables, carry case, accessories and software, if available, will be included but this is NOT guaranteed so please do not place an order if your level of expectation is that these are required. We will not be liable for return shipping costs if you change your mind on the basis of missing accessories or if the product has been repackaged in a generic box instead of the original manufacturers box".

Just for information - some reports saying the Lumia range won't be getting the WP8 update;

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.

It'd be suicide if they didn't support updating it.

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).

Android is for men
WP is for girls
iPhone is for kids, and Realblender

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

This won't be upgradable to Windows Phone 8.

None of the current WP7 phones will be.

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.

1. not being upgraded- so software is outdated
2. 1.4 GHz Scorpion, 512 ram - So hardware is lacking anyway
3. refurbished
4. how is over £230 a good deal. Its not awful..it's the maximum I would expect it to cost

good camera specs and build quality though

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.
