Nokia goes down down

You can now get a classic Nokia 3310 3G at Coles for just $39 – amazing value for this big buttoned, seniors phone or just a spare to keep in the car.

Following the release of five new models at the recent Mobile World Congress price reductions to clear current stocks was a good idea.

Another great deal is the $300 price drop for its Nokia 8 from JB Hi-Fi until 15 March.

But not to be outdone Vodafone is offering a $360 loyalty discount a 36-month contract at Vodafone. The discount applies to the $40 Red Plan and is the cheapest in market option for the handset costing a total of $539.

The Nokia 5 was $329 and is now just $287 outright at JB Hi-Fi.

Telstra is also offering the exclusive Tempered Blu colour, featuring 3GB RAM for $249 including free delivery.
