O2 UK is offering the Huawei Ascend W1 in Blue and Pink for only £99.99 on Pay as You Go, £30 down from its previous £129.99 price.
The handset is available available for free from as little as £14 per month with unlimited text and 250 MB of data on a 24 month contract.
The handset competes with the Nokia Lumia 520, which is also carried by O2, but which is now £20 more expensive at £119.99 (and also out of stock), meaning we are now seeing some real price competition at the Windows Phone low end.
The handset has a 4 inch WVGA screen and 5 megapixel camera, with the only real deficit being no access to Nokia’s exclusive apps and only 4GB of internal storage, though microSD expansion is supported.
