  • Decent price, expected it to be higher. Nokia X is only slightly cheaper.
  • Yeah. Especially for Russia it's not that expensive as I would have thought
  • This needs to be the default background in Russia:
  • I only imagine how would be a Lumia 430... No camera? No GPS?? lol
  • No phone? :D like a smartwatch. They could call it 430. Lol. "A phone without a phone inside. It's just a watch" would be the text of an ad for it
  • Maybe they would call it the 420. Because you would have to be high to buy one.
  • You know what 420 means in India right?
  • No, only familiar with the meaning in the states
  • It means four hundred twenty, right? :D
  • if Microsoft Mobile would release a weaker Lumia than 530, I think it'll be named Lumia 330...
    to date, there is no Nokia phone with the number 4 in its name
  • I know. But there's no 330 either.
  • How about..... 3310 ;)
  • With 333mb ram and bare bones os
  • Incorrect.
  • AFAIK, there has never been any number 4 on Nokia phones since it's an unlucky number for the Chinese.
  • Yes, the Nokia 3410.
  • Not Ukraine? Come on Microsoft. U could at least make it also available in Ukraine at the same time... Shame
  • There's a political joke in here somewhere....
  • Kind of. But there also could be no joke in there., u kno
  • They may not report about Ukraine since it is not a big market. But Lumias are usualy pretty quickly availible in the country.
  • Ure right. And the prices are more tasty in Ukraine than in Russia for example. Especially now with this dollar price. U can get a new 1520 with 3months of warranty for 450$
  • Sorry, but in the Russia 1520 have 400$ with official supports 12 month
  • I thought it's gonna be under USD 100... look at those specs! Wonder if Microsoft will release an even weaker Lumia and price it USD 85 unlocked
  • Wow, $30 more than Vietnam?
  • U kno that phones in Russia are more expensive than anywhere else, especially Vietnam. They have the cheapest gasoline in Vietnam too.. I'm jelly
  • Meh. Check the pricing in Brazil. That should heart. Also North Korea nation for their population they have like 5 phones altogether.
  • I doubt any mobile phones are availible in the N Korea...
  • Lol
  • Then 330 would be no screen, no GPS, no camera ! Lol
  • No nothing
  • No yellow colour too bad...yellow is great to see
  • Weird, I thought there was a boycott among nations
  • In Soviet Russia, Lumia orders you!
    Humorous stylings aside, don't think they'd sell a ton of these @$138...
  • Well Now they do have. Fly as a cheapest WP device. But anyways with Here services the Lumia is a no brainer. Tell you what, this price is actually quite affordable there.
  • I honestly think they need to quit making 512mb ram devices. Most people I know that have bought a 512mb ram Windows Phone think that Windows Phone sucks and judge them all based on their device because it can't run big games.
  • Not all people buy phones for these so called games, ya know. I'm happy with my Lumia 620 and gaming PC.
  • Yes, but the average buyer doesn't know about ram and stuff. They just assume every Windows Phone can't play the games. It's not that much more expensive to have a gigabyte of ram instead of 512mb. If should be the standard.
  • So Russia wants our smartphones but not our fruits/dairy/meats? I'd say they got their priorities right...  :P (of course, I kid!)
  • Want to be hacked whilst they are hacking. Win win situation!
  • Hehe it would be still funny and you'd git it right if you'd be talking serious. Not just kidding.
  • a lumia 330 is possible, but not in this year:   512 mb ram 4 gb 3.8 inches with 480p snapdragon 200 dual core that is more cheaper than the quad core version  2.0 megapixels camera   in the next year snapdragon 605 and 610 should enter in mass production and then 200 and 400 would reduce their price. so i think that 2015 will be the year for lumia 330.
  • It would probably be the 350 with WP9, as I understand that they skip the X4X series.
  • Does US trade sanctions against Russia after the MH17 incident affect Microsoft's dealings with Russia?
  • Microsoft Mobile Oy (formerly Nokia) is actually a separate company incorporated in Finland. The "Oy" bit in the name means it's a stock company registered in Finland. As it is its own semi autonomous entity based in Finland I have no idea if any future electronics sanctions against US would affect it, unless they'd also be levied against Finland.
  • Not sure about Finland, but the EU has similar sanctions.
  • Nuff of all these sanctions, pretty sure that it hurt EU companies way more than it does hurt Russia
  • Pretty sure the people hurt most are the normal Russian citizens who have nothing to do with Ukraine but now have their food prices go up because countries are having a childish dick measuring contest.
  • Do you really think that prices went up after that?
  • Those sanctions mostly affect financial, military, oil and gas industry.
  • Sanctions should be applied to Ukraine, which was hit MH-17. This is probably why this device there is not released. For Lumia devices Russia is 4 market in the world. Nokia always loved Russia for her dedication. That is why in Russia was the first start of sales 920
  • Remind me again why go for the 530 instead of this Nokia: Just asking?
  • Price.
  • Sooo Putin haven't abandon windows phone : D
  • He said several years ago he had no a mobile phone at all. Meanwhile there was an event "Send a messege to the president". No kidding
  • Add says that they will give free Nokia DC-18 portable charger.. It's like $25-30 @amazon
  • The price is good. But they have to decrease the price inorder to compete moto e.
  • How much is moto e in russia?
  • We don't have Moto E in Russia. Motorola has left russian market several years ago
  • Cool then this phone will rule there
  • Next year this phone will be sold at $70-80 and ms should keep this model in 2-3 years as a phone to replace asha
  • Microsoft should boycot Russia.
  • You should boycott WPCentral.
  • Америка страна дибилов и уродов
  • Then don't visit site about American software. -__-
  • Stay in russia, katsap.
  • Stupid nationalists in Ukraine
