For those in Malaysia, the affordable dual-SIM Lumia 530 entry-level Windows Phone is now available to order for MYR 355 ($110 USD). The phone is available to order, but shipping will not take place until four days from now on the 16th. The price of the Lumia 530 falls in line with the recent launch in Vietnam and comes in slightly lower than original estimates for the budget phone.
Recapping, the Lumia 530 features a 4-inch FWGA (854×480) LCD screen and is powered by a 1.2GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 200 processor with 512MB of RAM. The camera is a basic 5 MP version on the rear, with no front-facing camera or other accoutrements like NFC or a LED flash.
The Lumia 530 does launch with Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan, bringing with it things like Cortana (where available), a new Notification Center and WordFlow for typing.
More information can be found on the Microsoft- Nokia Lumia 530 page.
