213

Berlin, Germany – Microsoft this morning announced the budget-conscious Nokia Lumia 730 and Lumia 735 along with its 5 MP front-facing camera for the 'selfie generation' and Skype users. The phone is expected to go on sale in the coming weeks for €199 ($262 USD) along with 3G dual SIM support ideal for emerging markets. The Lumia 735 with 4G LTE and single SIM will run for €219 ($288 USD). By comparison, the original Lumia 720 cost around €249 on its initial launch.

The Lumia 730 is the follow up to the popular Lumia 720, which featured an impressive F/1.9 aperture camera for exceptional low-light performance. The Lumia 730, however, builds off of the Lumia 720's weaknesses by adding in 1 GB of RAM, a faster 1.2 GHz Quad-core processor and a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 HD display.

119

Did you hear the news? Microsoft bought the mobile division of Nokia. So, it should not be too shocking to see Microsoft Mobile slowly but surely replace 'Nokia' in the Store with the more accurate 'Lumia' tag for those specialized apps we have all come to love.

Today, Storyteller, Panorama, Cinemagraph, and Creative Studio have all gained 'Lumia' in their titles, replacing the outdated Nokia brand. This trend is not new either as over the last few months we have witnessed a few apps get the Lumia re-brand treatment.
