This is another of those deals from Woolworths that is too good to believe, you can pick up the budget Lumia 532 for a pocket pleasing $49.50 at selected stores around the country. The phone is pre paid from Telstra, and can be unlocked for a price, which bumps up the cost quite a bit if you want to choose that option straight off the bat. As a second device, a spare, one. to install the Win 10 Technical Preview on, a first phone for the kids, it’s capable but not going to blow anyone’s head off.
Specs wise, the device sports a 4 inch screen, a 5 mega pixel camera and is running the latest version of Windows Phone 8.1out of the box. This deal obviously comes about because of the volume buying power of a chain like Woolworths, and is of course of benefit to us locals. I hope Woolies has a few limits on how many can be bought per person, so that we don’t see these flooding Ebay and other online trading sites by people unscrupulously trying to make a profit on the handsets. Noticeably on Telstra’s support forums after the Lumia 530 made it’s cheap debut with the retailer, many internationals are still asking for help to unlock these devices.
Be that as it may, it’s still a tempting offer. The phone is only available in stores [not available online] at this price till Wednesday the 12th of May, and may not be available in all stores. Colours, sizes and styles may vary from store to store. While stocks last.
Thanks Mark for the tip.
