Check this out eh, the Nokia Lumia 800 SIM Free and Contract Free for an incredible £119, which is even more incredible when you remember that the RRP for this phone is at least £400, as Argos even mentions it was £449. Obviously many people have hoped that they can do the same as what we did back when the iMac was priced at £739 (should of been £949) at Argos and get an incredible deal on this product. Sadly not, but why. When the iMac was priced lower than it should of been it was in the catalogue rather than just online. A catalogue price is kinda hard to edit to be honest, and purely because the price was printed in catalogues you could still get at the time and no notes were made about the price, Argos had to sell the device for the price they printed rather than the price they really wanted to, and I’m sure this resulted in many much happier Mac users for that reason, well what about the Lumia then, could this be the same … well?
Difference with the Lumia 800 is the product is an online exclusive, meaning pricing it incorrectly reflects when the order is processed and is easily rectified. Whilst the price is a whole £330 cheaper than it should be, everyone who tried ordering the product unfortunately didn’t receive the Lumia, but received a refund and a message. The price was a mistake, but purely because it was an online exclusive, Argos was able to fix the problems without been forced to sell the product at the mistaken price, which is a bit oh well for many. Guess everyone will go back to getting the Lumia on Contract then cause it really is a great phone.
UPDATE: Argos have removed the Nokia Lumia 800 completely from their online website, probably due to return soon with the fixed correct price.
