Orange offers free Xbox 360 with Nokia Lumia 800

If the phone itself hasn't tempted you in, perhaps a free console will swing you towards the Nokia Lumia 800? That's exactly what you get from Orange if you upgrade to the newly-launched Windows 7.5 handset.

There are conditions and there is smallprint. You wouldn't expect anything else. But the offer is very real. If you are an Orange customer right now and are keen to upgrade to the Nokia Lumia 800, you will be rewarded with a 4GB Xbox 360. That's not a top of the range console, but it is around £150 worth of gaming fun, so who's complaining?

As for that small print, well, we've already mentioned that you need to be an existing Orange customer on a pay monthly deal. You'll also need to upgrade between 16 November and 30 November to be eligible, although you can pre-order now. Just make sure you check the console is available when you do that, because this is a limited stock offer. There's a £10 deposit required too.

Good deal? All depends on whether you want the new Nokia Lumia 800. Yes, you'll get the console, but a two-year deal will set you back the best part of £900 when completed (based on £36 per month). But you don't get a console with any other phone, so on that basis, pretty tempting.

As for the phone, that was launched earlier this week, offering the latest version of Windows Phone (7.5 Mango), along with a 3.7-inch AMOLED ClearBlack curved display, a 1.4GHz, processor, an eight-megapixel 'instant-share' camera with Carl Zeiss optics and HD video playback (along with 720p HD capture), 16GB of internal user memory and 25GB of free SkyDrive storage, along with a range of custom apps from Nokia, such as one-touch social network access, threaded communication, Nokia Drive navigation and MixRadio music streaming.

We managed to get hands-on with the smartphone at the launch, so you can check out an in-depth feature on the phone, plus a stack of photos right here. T-Mobile and Vodafone are also selling the handset, as is Nokia directly, the latter for €420 SIM-free.
