Mobile phone giant Nokia have launched a new online shop for British consumers, offering a range of handsets and accessories with the promise of exclusive items before they hit the high street.

Nokia Shop

The online shop at offers SIM-free mobiles which can be used on any UK mobile operators network, and looks set to send shockwaves through the traditional retailers who often only sell the latest devices locked to specific networks and coupled up with expensive tariffs.

Nokia's shop also boasts the UK exclusive of their Black 8800 - priced at a hefty 799, compared to the commonly available silver model which retails for around 200 less - and also offers impressive savings of around 100 on the price that mobile operator o2 is currently selling the Nokia N70 handset for currently in their retail stores.
