  • Connect with work and personal e-mail while on the go, with Microsoft Outlook built-in.
  • Showcase photos and videos or get even more productive with Office on the large, 5 inch qHD display.
  • Fit more memorable backgrounds or add more friends into Skype video calls and selfies with the 5 MP wide angle front facing camera.

The phone should be available from today from Amazon, Tesco, O2, Carphone Warehouse and Virgin Mobile.
