Nokia’s 4G-packing Lumia 625 will be up for grabs on these shores on August 28th, coinciding with the launch of O2 and Vodafone’s 4G networks.
Both networks will be stocking the device, as will EE. Carphone Warehouse and Phones 4U will also be carrying the affordable next-gen handset.
Enticingly, it’ll be available on past-as-you-go deals for just £179. That’s absurdly cheap for a phone that crams in LTE, a huge 4.7-inch display, Windows Phone 8, 8GB memory and 7GB of free Microsoft Sky Drive space.
Contract-wise, plans will start at just £21 and snag you the phone for free, although expect to play plenty more if you want access to 4G data.
That’s reflected in Vodafone asking for £34 a month for the phone, throwing in 2GB of LTE data.
The Lumia 625 was revealed at the end of last month.
Espoo is trying desperately to offer a range of Windows Phones at different price points in an attempt to convince as many people as possible to make the switch from iOS and Android.
