One big benefit of the Windows Phone operating system is its ability to perform with aplomb on both low-end and high-end hardware. It can satisfy power users who always early adopters of the latest and greatest technology or be an affordable choice for emerging markets. That’s why when a device like the Nokia Lumia 620 goes up for preorder in India we can add another checklist towards a stronger ecosystem.
If you’re out in India you can preorder the Lumia 620 for 15199 rupees (about $277) right now. Parting with your cash will get you a 3.8 inch screen running 480x800 pixels on a ClearBlack LCD. It’s powered by a 1.0 Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and 512MB of RAM. You can capture photos on 5MP camera or a 0.3MP front-facing camera and store those pictures or videos on 8GB of onboard storage – you can expand with a microSD card up to 64GB. Get the rest of the specs, like NFC, here.
We reviewed the Lumia 620 a few weeks back and found it to be a delightful device for how inexpensive it is. Affordable smartphone + wild colors + Windows Phone should equate to a fairly popular device. You can pick it up in black, yellow, magenta, or white. But don’t forget you can easily swap the color of the device with a different back plate.
Any readers out in India thinking of picking up this for themselves or family members?
