Nokia Lumia 525 starts selling in Vietnam


It would be great to know at what price 520 is selling there now.
That will give a clear idea whether 525 priced well or not

Did you already get the update 3? If not, I would suggest you to get it without waiting for the black.

Type in 'update 3 developers preview' on the WPC app. Instructions will tell you hoe to get update 3 there. With Lumia black, you will have to wait. Unless you got the testing email from Nokia of course!

I wish i could travel by flying and not just walking.......which i assume takes up around 512gb of brain ram

I was in Singapore in May. When I got in the subway, I was the only with the Nokia Lumia 520. LOL. The copycat Samsung is everywhere.

So the only difference with Lumia 520 is the 1 GB ram. How can you install lots of compatible games if the phone storage is limited to less than 8 GB?

He meant you can install and use apps that require 1GB RAM minimum.

About phone storage, there is a very good chance that in the future WP will allow users to run apps from external storage.So don't worry about it.
