Nokia Lumia 800 on Three with two months of Spotify

The Nokia Lumia 800 is available on Three, with two months of Spotify premium if you're willing to splash out £37 per month.

The Nokia Lumia 800 is now available on Three, the data-centric network we're never quite sure how to type.

3 Three is flogging Nokia's first Windows Phone device on its One Plan, which will set you back £37 per month over 24 months, which adds up to a grand total of £888 over the two-year period.

But for that hefty sum you get unlimited data, 2,000 minutes and 5,000 texts per month and two months of Spotify Premium.

That'll let you use the music-streaming service on your phone -- apt, as the Spotify app for Windows Phone has recently arrived on the scene. After those two months, however, you'll need to start shelling out £10 per month like all the other chumps.

If that contract sounds a bit rich for you, Thr-- 3 the network also has £30 and £33 per month contracts, both of which also last 24 months. The £30 Text 500 plan gives you a not-insubstantial 1GB of data, while the £33 gets you unlimited data.

If you've got a healthy dollop of upfront dough, there's a pay as you go option that demands £400 for the phone itself. But you do get unlimited data with that deal.

If you'd rather buy an unlocked SIM-free phone, the Lumia 800 can be yours for £470 from Carphone Warehouse, though at the time of writing it's listed as being out of stock. We've just been told that Phones4U will be offering a better deal, selling the Lumia 800 for £400 SIM-free. If you're on Orange and upgrade to the 800 you'll get a free Xbox 360.

We're expecting Nokia's first Windows Phone effort, which also packs a 1.4GHz processor and an 8-megapixel camera, to go on sale on 16 November.
