Early Bird Catches the Nokia N8 Worm as Tesco Telecoms Announces Pre-order Deals

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2010) - Tesco has announced that the much anticipated Nokia N8 will be available on shelves from 22nd October and will be available for pre-order due to high levels of demand as shoppers get their Christmas orders in early. 

Hot on the heels of Tesco Mobile's market beating Nokia N8 Pay As You Go price news, the telecoms retailer has announced some pocket-friendly contract options, as well as a limited pre-order deal for the handset that's not to be missed.

For those desperate to get their hands on the new Nokia N8, dubbed the 'iPhone killer', Tesco Telecoms is offering pre-order deals with big savings. 

Customers can register now for the Nokia N8 and be one of the first to find out when it's available to pre-order at a reduced rate of £25 per month on Vodafone and O2, as well earning 1,000 Clubcard points. 

Pre-orders will be accepted between 09.00am on 15th October and close at midnight on 21st October.

Once the coveted handset has hit the shelves on 22nd October, customers on Tesco Mobile, O2 and Vodafone can grab a free Nokia N8 for just £30 a month at Tesco. Customers get 1,000 Clubcard points on sign up which no doubt will help with the Christmas shopping. 

Tesco Mobile's 24 month N8 tariff includes 750 minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited data. 

Another of the N8 deals at Tesco Phone Shops is on Vodafone which for £30 a month on a 24 month contract, gives 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB of data.

Lance Batchelor, Chief Executive Officer of Tesco Telecoms and Tesco Mobile commented: "The Nokia N8 is one of the most highly anticipated pay monthly mobile launches of this year, with both the industry and consumers awaiting its arrival with baited breath. We're thrilled to be once again able to offer consumers the best choice and some of the cheapest deals on the market.

The Nokia N8 looks set to be the most popular gift this Christmas and our great range of Pay As You Go and contract deals offer something to suit every budget and need. I'm also sure that hardcore tech fans will be pleased to hear about our pre-order deal, which means they no longer need to camp outside the store in the rain to be the first to get their new phone!"
