A P800 for £49

Bundled minutes

On Monday we told you that UK dealers had set aggressive pricing for the SonyEricsson P800. OK, scrap that.

Mobile Shop will do you a P800 on the Orange network for £49, although really it's £49 per month, with bundled minutes. The details are here. This is a common model in the US, although still quite novel in the UK.

On this side of the pond, a reliable phone store here in San Francisco told me that shipments would arrive in town next week, but to expect to pay $600. The pricing with a contract may be lower, but remains murky.

Price is pretty important to where the P800 will be pitched in the marketplace. The going rate for a Treo now is $399, and for a Nokia 9290 with contract is $449. ®
