Today, Nokia officially confirmed that its Nokia Lumia 620 Windows Phone 8 smartphone will arrive on shelves in Australia on February 22, featuring a price tag of only $329 AUD (around $340 USD / €250)
The handset, made official in December last year, arrives on the market as the most affordable Lumia handset to run under Microsoft’s latest mobile OS flavor, though it still sports highly appealing capabilities.
The device has been confirmed for Australia last week, when Nokia’s CEO said that it would be launched in the country this month, and is now officially heading to shelves there.
According to mynokiablog.com, the handset will arrive on shelves at JB Hi-FI, The Good Guys, Harvey Norman and Allphones.
“We want to deliver smartphones, under the Lumia umbrella, that appeal to a range of people and age groups,” Steve Lewis, Nokia Australia’s Managing director, said.
“With the Lumia 620, we're targeting a more cost-conscious younger audience who do not want to compromise on features and functionality. It’s a great choice for someone looking to make the smartphone switch.”
Nokia Lumia 620 was launched with a series of interchangeable colored shells so that users could take advantage of a wide range of customization options with it.
The smartphone features a 3.8-inch touchscreen display that can deliver an 800 x 480 pixels resolution, a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal memory.
Furthermore, the device packs a microSD memory card slot so that users could expand the available storage, as well as a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash on the back, and a front-facing VGA camera on the front, for making video calls.
The specs list of Lumia 620 also includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, NFC capabilities, GPS receiver, and a nice range of pre-loaded Nokia applications, including Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive, Nokia City Lens and Nokia Music.
