Nokia appears keen on getting the seemingly popular and new to the crowd Lumia 620 into people’s hands. The phone has previously launched in Russia, Thailand, India (available soon), Germany (pre-order) UAE (AED 899) and China.
Now we’ve learned of three more places launching the super colorful and affordable Windows Phone 8 device: Spain, Turkey and it’s even coming to Canada.
First up is Spain, where the entry level phone is now available via the Phone House for 289 €. Unfortunately, the device is only available in boring old black, which is a real shame for such a luminous Nokia release.
Next up is Turkey where the Lumia 620 will evidently be getting a full on launch event there on Monday, January 28th. The phone is launching on Turkcell and reportedly Chris Weber (Executive Vice President of Nokia), Emre Sayın (General Manager Assistant of Retail Marketing and Sales Group of Turkcell) will all be on hand at the the Kanyon Store of Turkcell in Istanbul for the occasion.
The affair starts at 10:30am and we expect pricing and availability to be announced at that time.
Finally, we have some good news for our friends up north. Rogers is reportedly getting the Lumia 620 (hopefully more than just black) in March. Mobile Syrup, via one of their tipsters, passed on the info that the large Canadian carrier will be stocking the device in the next 6 weeks as they are currently prepping it for release on their network. Price is expected to be “...under $300 outright”, which is keeping with the 620’s entry level status.
As we mentioned earlier today, the Lumia 620 is not scheduled for a US carrier pickup, which is a bit of a shame seeing as Expansys is evidently selling quite a few. Being that the case, Nokia seems to be doing a great job of getting this device into many regions in a short amount of time and that’s nothing but good news for the platform.
