Nokia Lumia 620 is new Windows Phone 8 for those on a tight budget
Nokia has just made an announcement for a new Windows Phone 8 powered device, where they have called it the Nokia Lumia 620. This particular bad boy is definitely one that targets the market which is more budget conscious. After all, we do know that the world’s economy is not in the best of shapes at this point in time, so it would make perfect sense for smartphone manufacturers to be more sensitive to the needs of those out there who work around a tight budget, juggling their (financial) responsibilities between a family, work, and leisure. Perhaps you are one who wants to give the Windows Phone 8 operating system a go, but do not want to splurge your hard earned cash on a high end Nokia Lumia 920, which is where the Nokia Lumia 620 steps in – perfectly.
Nokia’s Lumia 620 would be the company’s third and most affordable Windows Phone device to date, and it will join its “elder” siblings in the market, which are the flagship Lumia 920 and the Lumia 820. The Nokia Lumia 620 will come with a rather compact 3.8” display, and this would certainly make it the smallest Nokia Lumia device in the market today. Specially designed to be an affordable alternative to the mid-range Lumia 820, it carries with it an estimated retail price of just $249 – prior to taxes and subsidies, of course.
Just what kind of firepower (some say the lack of, I leave that up to you to judge) do you think the Lumia 620 has underneath the hood? For starters, it comes with a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera at the back, a front facing VGA camera, and 8GB of internal memory. Of course, we all know that in this day and age, 8GB is just not quite good enough, which is why there is a microSD memory card slot thrown into the mix for good measure, letting you bump up the total memory to 64GB along the way.
Apart from that, it will also be accompanied by a host of all of Windows Phone 8’s features alongside Nokia’s extremely useful app suite which carries Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps, Nokia City Lens, and Nokia Transit among others. Any takers?
