lumia 630

Microsoft held a press event in South Africa this week to announce that the Nokia Lumia 630 was shipping to that country right now and that the Lumia 930 will be released sometime before the end of September.

The budget priced Lumia 630 should go on sale in South Africa sometime in early July for the price of R1,999, or about U.S. $188. Microsoft also said the older Lumia 520 will continue to be sold in that country for the reduced price of R1,499.

As far as the Lumia 930 goes, Microsoft indicated this week that South Africa would have to wait a bit longer to get that larger and more expensive phone. The company indicated that they hope to launch the Lumia 930 sometime before the end of the third quarter in that country. No price point was revealed for the phone in South Africa, which is expected to go on sale in Europe in early to mid-July.

If you live in South Africa, do you plan to pick up a Lumia 630 or will you wait for the 930 to go on sale?
