Nokia Lumia 520 available for preorder in India. Shipping in about two weeks.

The Lumia 520 was announced by Nokia at the end of last month during Mobile World Congress. It’s a noteworthy phone because it’s currently the most affordable Windows Phone to date. It’s now available for pre-order in India through Flipkart for Rs.10499.

Yesterday we showed you guys and gals factory unlocked 520s popping up on eBay here in the U.S. for $240. But if you’re over in India the 10499 rupees work out to about $193. It’s a steal either way for an impressive phone. How impressive? For that insanely low price you get a 4 inch IPS LCD running at 480x800, a 1.0Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 8GB of internal storage which is expandable with a microSD card, a 5MP camera with autofocus and this is all powered by 1430mAh battery.

While those specs aren’t earth shattering, you need to remember how much (or little) you’re actually paying for this phone.

Any of our friends in India picking up this phone for themselves or family?
