Nokia is offering vouchers for those who reside and Germany and have purchased a Lumia Windows Phone. If you didn't think the blocks of ice housing Lumia devices were enough to sway your mind, then perhaps this offer of €50 worth of vouchers for new and existing Nokia Windows Phone owners will help?

We've been informed by our tipster that entering "P9YE5Y" as the voucher code (along with your personal details) will enable you to select from a variety of discount coupons (totalling €50) for use at retailers and more. 

Not at all a bad offer, but do you believe it's almost reaching a point where we're being paid by Nokia to use their products? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

For those looking for one heck of a deal, you may want to consider heading the online Microsoft Store for that Nokia Lumia 800 entertainment bundle. We first reported on this a few months ago where the four-part package fetched for $899.  No doubt a bit pricey but how does $599 sound?

To refresh your memory, the Nokia entertainment bundle comes with a Lumia800 (black or magenta) which is unlocked and tuned for AT&T’s 3G frequencies. You also get the Play 360 which is a portable, high-fidelity speaker that will allow you to stream your Lumia’s music via Bluetooth (and it has NFC for the future too). To top it off, you get a swanky Nokia Purity HD headset by Monster which for home use is an outstanding choice (they’re over the ear, so not as portable as the in-ear solution) and a Nokia Luna Bluetooth headset (reveiw)

The Play 360 ($150), Luna BT headset ($79) and Purity HD headset ($200) means you’re getting an unlocked Lumia 800 for just $170 which is pretty awesome if you ask us. We of course have a few Lumia 800s here but they have Euro bands making them less than optimal for use on AT&T. Because of that, we’re seriously contemplating throwing down some cash on this bad boy package. We do dearly love our Lumia 900 but the 800 is really the apex of design with the curved screen—truly a great phone.

The Lumia 800 features a 3.7” Super AMOLED screen with ClearBlack, 16GB of storage and an 8MP camera. It’s a solid phone and if 4G LTE is nowhere near you and you don’t use the somewhat gimmicky front-facing camera, picking up the 800 contract-free is a solid option.

We think this drop actually happened a few weeks ago but regardless, head over to the Microsoft Store to take a look. Remember, only black and magenta are available. For those curious, the "magenta" for the Lumia 800 is much more red than pink--it's okay for you guys too. And no, Amazon surprisingly has not yet matched this price but we’ll keep a watch if that happens. Thanks, Blitz_Empire, for the tip

We're still expecting the HTC TITAN II to drop in the next few weeks and perhaps in an attempt to clear some stock, AT&T has dropped the behemoth Windows Phone to just one cent with a new contract.

That's pretty amazing for a 4.7" screen device with a 1.5GHz CPU and the best camera yet on a Windows Phone (yeah, we're calling it). The TITAN has been a big success, according to the folks at HTC we spoke with back at CES and we can't argue with that as it has been one of our favorite devices around.

The TITAN though is not being discontinued as far as we know as HTC told us that it will still be sold alongside the TITAN II (which is slightly redesigned, has a 16MP camera and LTE 4G on board), so we think this is more of a sale to push Windows Phone rather than an end-of-life scenario. Either way, it's a great deal.

As if the Nokia Lumia 710 wasn't already cheap enough, the phone has received a nice price cut of about 3300 Rs to 15699. Available through Flipkart.com now, the 3.7" device with a ClearBlack LCD a 1.4GHz CPU is quickly becoming the most affordable smartphone on the market.

Of course, we could wonder if the price drop is because Nokia wants to be more competitive or perhaps the 710 is not selling as well--hard to say at this point. But for those interested in a new smartphone, it seems a great deal.

Looks like Dell is still either trying to push the DVP (see first impressions vid) as much as possible, or they're trying to ditch them. Either way, you can benefit from their price cuts, so long as you sign a contract. Previously, Dell was out of stock on the AT&T version, but now they're back for the buyin':

  • $0.99 for 8GB
  • $49 for 16GB
  • $99 for 32GB

We think with the v2.12 firmware and adding Mango, the DVP gets a second life and is worth reconsidering. If interested, head to Dell's site. (Thanks, @wp7ap)

Those of you looking to upgrade to the latest and greatest HTC from AT&T on the cheap should get your pocketbooks ready. Refurbished models of the HTC Pure and HTC Tilt 2 are now offered through AT&T online. Prices with a 2 year contract (including a $30 per month data plan) are down to $149.99 for the Tilt2 and $99 for the Pure.

What is your opinion on refurbished devices? Is a savings of $50 worth not getting a brand new device? Any success/horror stories to share? What say you?
