Swedish carrier Three bundling free Xbox with Lumia 800 Windows Phone

Swedish carrier Three (or "3") is offering the Nokia Lumia 800 on a 2-year contract for 299 kr (about $40), but that's not all as the carrier is also bundling the 4G slim version of the Xbox 360 for free. 2GBs of data is included in the plan, and with a free Xbox who can grumble?

We've previously covered similar offers in Sweden with the LG Optimus 7, so it's good to see carriers using Lumia Windows Phones in attempt to push more out the doors. The Lumia 800 itself is a sturdy mid-range Windows Phone that sports a 1.4Ghz chip, 512MB RAM, 16GB storage, 3.7 AMOLED display (with Clear Black technology), and has access to Nokia's collection of OEM exclusive apps.

  • Trevligt att det erbjudandet är tillbaka. Nice to see this offer again.
  • Ja. För de som ändå ska binda sig till ett kontrakt så är ju det här en väldigt bra och generös lösning. Men jag håller mig alltid utanför dem.
    For those who prefers/utilize contracts this is a very solid and generous solution. Not for me though I'm never on contract.
  • Jo, köper själv alltid av Expansys. Bra pris och inga problem. 3 påstår att dom tagit bort spärren nu för Lumian, men dom blockade mango när den kom. Sorgligt om vi ska gå den amerikanska modellen med dels låsta mobiler, men även låsta uppdateringar.
  • I och med Windows Phone 8 så kommer alla uppdateringar att komma OTA (over the air). Så man kan således gå förbi operatören om den är låst då. De fixar så att man alltid kommer ha en möjlighet att uppdatera om man så själv vill, om en uppdatering finns tillgänglig.
    Dock så kommer inte detta att fungera på våra nuvarande WP7 telefoner utan då får man köpa en som kommer ha WP8 när det väl kommer.
  • C'mon, lets hope it was just a slip but...it is one thing for uninformed forum goers to say an Xbox 360 is 4G...but for a CELL PHONE website to say there is a 4G Xbox 360 is just obnoxious!  Please change it to read 4GB.
  • It does not say 4G on the carriers website, it says 4GB. Are you happy now? ;-)
  • When you describe storage space, do you say four gigs or four gigabytes? I understand that 4g is easily confused with speed and not space, but if your here you probably know better.
  • Both. "Officially" though we say gigabytes. One "gig" or several "gigs" is just a very usual slang word.
  • It can also be added that it's for the white Lumia only.
