Orange: Free XBOX 360 when you buy a Nokia Lumia 800

Have you been hearing about this deal from Orange? It’s been capturing the imaginations of quite a few normob (“normal mobile user”) friends and family. I’ve overheard people discussing it multiple times a day so — anecdotally at least — it’s certainly gathering a lot of attention.

Here’s the offer: If you upgrade to the new Nokia Lumia 800 (on £36/month), you’ll get an XBOX 360 absolutely free. For many, this is likely to be a huge, huge draw — and given the cross-platform fertilisation between Windows Phone and Microsoft’s XBOX (There’s a big green “XBOX LIVE” tile on every Windows Phone) — it does make a lot of sense.

I wonder how popular this offer is? I’ll see if I can find out. From the point of view of Nokia, it’s good to see these kind of offers from operators.

There’s more information on the Orange site. You’ll also see the posters advertising this in Orange Shops across the UK (if you haven’t already).
