O2 has waived entry fees on selected smartphone monthly contracts for a limited period, offering consumers the chance to get onboard with the latest handset technology and operating systems for a cut price.
From today, the HTC Desire is free on all O2 contracts, starting from £25.53 per month over 24 months. For your money, you’ll be getting one of the best-selling Android phones so far, with a spec sheet that includes an expansive 3.7-inch touchscreen for enjoying media on the go and browsing the web, a five-megapixel camera and up to 32GB of storage via the onboard microSD slot.
What's more, because this is an Android phone, you’ll also get to choose from tens of thousands of free and paid for apps from the Android Market, too.
You’re also catered for if you’re in the market for a messaging focussed phone. O2 is offering the BlackBerry Torch 9800 for free on 24-month contracts at £35.75 or above, too.
Featuring a brand new user friendly interface, courtesy of the revamped BlackBerry OS6 operating system, the Torch also packs the BlackBerry Messenger instant messaging app pre-installed, so you can stay in touch with your friends and family for free.
It’s also home to a slide-away, physical QWERTY keyboard for fast emailing and working on documents on the go, and a five-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash.
Alternatively you can get onboard with Nokia’s latest high-end NSeries phone, the N8. Optimised for enjoying media, the N8 features a 3.5-inch touchscreen, an industry-leading 12-megapixel camera with HD video recording and Dolby Digital Sound.
The N8 is free on pay monthly deals from £30.64, provided you sign up for two years.
