Nokia‘s fragile financial position means that they’re pulling out all stops in order to get people to buy their latest range of handsets. In a bid to boost sales, they’re offering Lumia owners a free pair of headphones. These aren’t just some wax-attracting earplugs either, but a £200 Purity HD Stereo Headset by Monster.
While both the Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 are undeniably quality devices, there are a few reasons why people might not want to jump head-first into this deal. Both phones run on Windows Phone 7.5, and it’s still unclear whether the OS will be upgradeable to Windows Phone 8.
Windows Phone 8 will be a huge upgrade on its predecessor, featuring support for dual-core processors and also native code support, which will make it much easier for Android and iOS apps to be converted for the OS. With Nokia looking to release a new flagship device specifically for WP 8 later in the year, it might be worth resisting the allure of the beastly headphones.
