Nokia has announced that both the Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 are launching in Italy. Both the cheapest Nokia Windows Phone and mid-range Lumia smartphone will be aggressively priced and marketed to further push the platform in the market. Windows Phone has done well in Italy, according to previous market share reports so the two new devices should do well. But how much will the Windows Phone 8 devices cost?
The Lumia 520 will be available in yellow, red, cyan, black and white for €199 ($255). Unveiled at Mobile World Congress back in Barcelona, the Windows Phone sports a 4-inch LCD display (480x800), dual-core 1GHz chip, 8GB internal storage (with SD support), 512MB RAM and has a 5MP rear shooter. What's unique about the Lumia 520 is how Nokia has managed to include Sensitive Touch, much like what's available on the Lumia 920.It's a perfect choice for those who are new to the platform.
The more expensive Lumia 720 will have a price tag of €349 ($450) and will also be available in yellow, red, cyan, black and white. It features a 4.3-inch IPS display (480x800), 1GHz dual-core chip, with 8GB internal storage (SD support included) and 512MB RAM. The added bonus with the Lumia 720 is the front-facing camera. This 1.3MP shooter joins the 6.7MP main camera on the rear of the device. It's reported that the Lumia 720 will be available next week.
