The Nokia Lumia 800’s exclusivity to Vodacom will end by March 2012, with Cell C saying that they will have the device available then for under R6,999.
According to Cell C spokesperson Karin Fourie, the device will be available through their franchise channel, call centre, Nashua Mobile, Altech Autopage and selected retail stores.
Vodacom had 200 units of the device available on 26 January 2012 for subscribers willing to take out a Business Call contract on the day and threw in an Xbox 360 Arcade to sweeten the pot.
The next batch of Lumias would only be available from 7 February 2012, Vodacom said.
Vodacom added that they will offer the device on Business Call contracts at R279 per month, while Cell C said that their Nokia Lumia 800 contracts would be available from R680 per month.
