As you look at the selection of pay as you go phones above one phone up there stand out as a deal. With the largest screen, the by far and away the fastest processor.
It’s the Nokia Lumia 710 at 150 Euro (which translates to about 200USD) Plus you get 6 months free of Zune pass which makes it an even better deal. I have reached out to Vodafone to see if the 710 is unlocked and if they would ship it stateside for and extra fee. So far they have not gotten back to me yet.
I will keep you in the loop when they get back to me as the 710 unlocked runs about $350 on Amazon.com right now.
