Attention UK residents looking for a new Windows Phone on the cheap: starting Friday the 22nd of August you'll be able to get the brand new Nokia Lumia 530 from Carphone Warehouse. The Windows Phone 8.1 handset can be had for as low as £10 a month (£0 upfront) with a 500MB/month tariff from Talkmobile, or on your choice of UK carrier (EE, O2, Orange, T-Mobile, and Vodafone all included).
Off-contract pricing for the Lumia 530 in the UK starts at £60. Carphone Warehouse has managed to secure an exclusive of sorts here, bringing the Lumia 530 to the UK two weeks earlier than the originally-announced 4 September availability.
You'll get a decent enough phone for that price, though, with a 4-inch 854x480 screen, 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and microSD expansion. Additionally there's a 5MP camera around back, though you'll have to make do without LTE.
