Lumia 720, Nokia's new king of the hill at middle range, is now available to the Chinese consumers through the legal market. Aside from great value, awesome camera and solid build, the device introduces another thing to the Chinese Windows Phone users: the Wallet hub.
The Wallet hub in Windows Phone 8 is one brilliant idea to bring everything into one place; most of you guys are already familiar with it. It offers access to credit cards, PayPal, debit cards, library cards, even deal coupons - literally everything. However, the feature has always been absent in Chinese Windows Phone 8 devies, including the iconic Lumia 920. It's said the Chinese government wants to keep the "vital business" like payment gateway for its homegrown corporations, therefore banning the integration of things like the Wallet hub into operating systems.
Apparently Nokia no longer feels the regulatory threat, and has at last decided to make Chinese Windows Phone 8 more complete. Surely the Wallet hub could become a new attraction to mainstream Chinese consumers in that market.
Meanwhile, Nokia's anti-smartphone the 105 will be realsed in China within days. Already people are showing very strong interest on Chinese social platform Sina Weibo. Nokia's 2013 in China is looking quite bright so far.
