Fly Era is a super-affordable Windows Phone launching in Russia for $112

There's a new and very cheap Windows Phone 8.1 product coming out soon, but it's not from Microsoft. Russia-based company Fly has announced plans to release the phone, Fly ERA Windows "soon", for the price of just 3,990 rubles, or around $112.

The phone will have a 4-inch IPS display with a resolution of 800x480. Inside there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with a clock speed of 1.2 GHz. There's just 512MB of RAM and only 4 GB of onboard storage with this phone, but it does have a microSD card for storage expansion.

The Fly ERA Windows will also have a 5 megapixel rear facing camera and a 0.3 megapixel front facing camera. All of that hardware is powered by a 1500 mAh battery. It sound like this phone is definately aimed at the budget price market that will be served by the Lumia 530.

Again, there's no specific release date other than "soon" for this phone, and there's also no word on if it will show up in other markets besides Russia. What do you think of this latest budget priced Windows Phone 8.1 device?
