It'll cost £400 up front but the scheme provides the smartphone curious a way to check out Windows Phone risk free.

Clove unveils 40-day trial of Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone

Mobile hardware specialist retailer Clove has kicked off a promotion which offers a Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone with a 40-day trial period where the phone can be returned for any reason.

In what is likely a Nokia and/or Microsoft supported scheme, the retailer priced the new Nokia smartphone at £399 bought outright. Black and Cyan versions are available.

If registering the phone within 10 days, customers can return the device up to 30 days after the registration (hence the 40 days maximum) if they find the handset or Windows Phone is not for them.

The Lumia 800 has been hailed as a particularly well made smartphone and shipping with the latest Windows Phone 7.5 ‘Mango’, it seems a pretty reasonable offer if the curious are willing to stump up in advance to give Windows Phone a try for themselves.

The offer has a dedicated site at www.lovemekeepme.com.
