Australia’s premiere Daily Deals site is about to launch THE BEST deal for anyone wanting to get their hands on a Windows Phone 7 handset EVER seen in this country. The device? A very solid Gen1 performer with the bonus of DLNA & Internet Sharing; The LG Optimus 7 or E900 is the device – the catch, it’s a 900band 3G unlocked device – so it’s optimised for Optus or Virgin networks here. This means it will not support Telstra NextG or Vodafone new 3G networks, although it is offered unlocked from the Optus/Virgin network so you can choose which of the two you wish to use it on.
And the price….well you are just going to have to keep reading, but you could buy TWO of these devices for less than the RRP of the new Lumia 710!
It was only a little over a week ago, at MWC 2012, that Pocket-lint confirmed with senior HTC management that the Titan II Windows Phone will be coming DownUnder. Fast forward to March 13 – and Telstra and their retail partners (eg JB Hi-Fi) will be launching the Nokia Lumia 800. This follows on from our exclusive launch with Telstra right here at this site of the Samsung Omnia W Gen2 WP7 device in late January. Based on information WPDownUnder has received in the past 24 hours, it would seem that Telstra are certain to unveil their 3rd new Windows Phone in just 4 months!
Talk about re-gaining the Windows Phone high-ground!

For all of quarter 4 2011, and turning into the start of Jan 2012 – Windows Phone Down Under saw very lean picking indeed re: WP7 device availability. If this was measured by Microsoft’s own “Buy” page on the AU Windows Phone site – things looked pretty glum, as we ended up with only 1 online Gen1 device for sale and listed on their product site. This was of course (and still is) the extremely slow-moving HTC HD7 via Telstra. However with the launch (blink and you may have missed it last month) of the Samsung Omnia W…and now the arrival of the Nokia Lumia device…Australia finally gets some online options for WIndows Phone device purchases.
