At the just concluded Mobile World Congress 2013 in Barcelona, Spain, we got a hands-on experience with Nokia’s latest Lumia smartphones — the Lumia 520 and the Lumia 720 — which bring the same innovation to new price points.
The Nokia Lumia 520 is Nokia’s most affordable Windows Phone 8 smartphone, delivering experiences normally only found in high-end smartphones, such as the same digital camera lenses found on the flagship Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Music for free music out of the box and even offline, and the HERE location suite. A four inch super sensitive touchscreen makes for a more responsive and immersive content experience than can usually be found at this price.
Here’s a quick video showing the Lumia 520 device in action. [Tip: You may need to turn your volume down due to the background music and noise to enjoy the video]
The Nokia Lumia 520 comes in five colors, with an estimated starting price of EUR 139, before taxes and subsidies. Roll-out is planned to begin in Q1 2013 in Hong Kong and Vietnam, before expanding broadly in Q2 to markets in Europe, Asia – including China and India – Latin America and Africa.
The Nokia Lumia 520 is also planned to roll out in the United States with T-Mobile.
