Nokia Lumia 530 going for £39.95 from UK's Carphone Warehouse

The Nokia Lumia 530 with Windows Phone 8.1 can be had contract-free from UK mobile phones retailer Carphone Warehouse for a cool £39.95. That's a full-fledged smartphone, for under forty quid. Not a bad deal, if we might say so ourselves. Options from Carphone Warehouse to go with that Lumia 530 include Vodafone and EE (well, Orange and T-Mobile, but they're both EE).

So what does £39.95 get you in a smartphone. When it's the Lumia 530 we're talking about, that gets you a 1.2Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 200 processor, 512MB if RAM, 4GB storage, and a 5MP camera, all topped with a 4-inch 854x480 LCD display. It's not a powerhouse phone by any measure, but when we're talking about a phone this cheap, these are still stunningly good specs.

So the Lumia 530 in the UK can be yours for even cheaper than ever, and in your choice of black, green, or orange. Who's game?
