N-Gage for 100?

Or 230 without the life-sapping contract.

Mobile network provider O2 is offering a Nokia N-Gage for 99.99 - if you're prepared to sign on the dotted line for an O2 Pay Monthly Online Tariff before noon on October 6th.

As part of the deal, the buyer also receives a few knickknacks, most notably a game-card holder (which is probably something of a pre-requisite given the size of the cards), screenwipe and 10-off-your-next-game voucher.

The Pay Monthly Online Tariff also includes 500 texts or 125 Media Messages per month depending on the precise package you go for, and you can expect to pay somewhere between 20 and 30 per month if you go for it.

If you're interested in subsidising the phone with a year's subscription to O2, then you're advised to call 0870 225 0208 and stake your claim to a pre-order. You can find more information on the deal by going to O2.co.uk and clicking on the annoying N-Gage pop-up [we can talk, eh? -Ed].

Or, if you'd prefer to just have the phone, you can get hold of it from various retailers, including Carphone Warehouse, who will let you have one for 229.99 (including Pandemonium), 254.99 (inc. Pandemonium and Tomb Raider) or 274.99 (inc. Pandemonium, Tomb Raider and Sonic N). As far as we can see, these are prices for the standalone phone.
