Microsoft Philippines has just announced a new promo, a buy 1 take 1 for the affordable Nokia Lumia 530.
Nokia may be at the dawn of its life as a brand name as far as phones go, but that doesn’t mean that they’re unable to pull a surprise string on us. Kind of reminds me of some protagonists in movies that are able to fire one last shot before he seemingly bites the bullet and then survives and saves the day.
Microsoft just announced the pricing and availability of the Nokia Lumia 730 in the Philippines. This mid-range Lumia smartphone will retail in stores for Php11,990.
Like I said in my previous article about the Lumia 830, Microsoft just recently announced three new phones in the Lumia line. This time, I’ll concentrate on the 7xx family, namely the 730 and 735. It’s traditionally the lower mid-range side of the family, although Nokia gave it a point higher.
And just when I thought we’ve seen the last of the of the Nokia brand, Microsoft just recently announced three new phones in the Lumia line! First up is in the 7xx family, namely the 730 and 735. The other set is in the 8xx line, namely the 830.
A couple of weeks ago, Nokia officially launched their second Windows Phone 8.1 handset, the Nokia Lumia 930, in the Philippine market. I liked its smaller brother, the Lumia 630, especially given the price point. Realizing that its older brother might turn out to be the last phone to be branded as a Nokia phone before we see Microsoft Mobility etched onto the subsequent ones, I hoped it’ll blow our minds.
Following the successful launch of Windows 8.1 and the first phone to carry it, the venerable Nokia Lumia 630, the higher end flagship carrier of the platform has officially been made available here in the Philippines. The specs of the phone is pretty much awesome on paper.
Yes, the update is coming to both platforms, the list of what’s new is enough to make any WP8 users shout, “It’s over 9000!”. For Windows 8 users, that means You’re being bumped up to Windows 8.1. For existing Windows 8.1 users, you also get new features.
On one hand, it was nice of Nokia to finally release a couple of handsets powered by Android. On the other, they all weren’t from the sleek Lumia line. But things are about to change, as there’s reportedly an incoming Lumia handset that will run on Google’s operating system.
If there’s anything I hated about the original Nokia X, it’s that it lacked a “home” button. Sure, you could do a long press on the single “back” button, but too many people are already used to the …
A couple of weeks ago, Nokia launched the successor to the venerable Lumia 620. When I reviewed it, I admitted to like it, but since that review didn’t come in a timely manner, I couldn’t recommend it since it’s overshadowed both by the bang-for-the-buck Lumia 520 and the not-quite-the-successor Lumia 625.
While the usual go-to device as a secondary handset would be a cheap Android smartphone, there are those who would still prefer feature phones. For the latter choice, one of the more recent feature phones available is the Nokia 225, which is the company’s “slimmest affordable Internet phone” yet.
Along with the Lumia 930, Nokia has also announced two more smartphones but are both heading to the mid-range market—the Nokia Lumia 630 and Lumia 635.
