Nokia and Mobilink have just introduced the former’s Windows Phone 8 lineup of smartphones in Pakistan. The Lumia 920, 820 and 620 will be available for purchase soon, for prices that have yet to be unveiled.
According to Dawn.com
, all three smartphones will arrive in Pakistan along with a wide range of accessories and “partnerships to bring wireless charging outside the home.”
This means that Nokia and Mobilink have signed agreements with various companies that will enable Lumia users to charge their smartphones in coffee shops or other special places.
“We are focused on redefining the future of smart devices and continue to invest towards delivering truly compelling experiences to consumers across price points,” said Allesandro Lamanna, vice-president of marketing in India, Middle East and Africa.
Mobilink is the largest carrier in Pakistan, so it was the obvious choice for Nokia and Microsoft
in this region: “Mobilink continues to remain at the forefront of bringing the latest in cellular technology to our customers” said Arsalan Quraishy, head of corporate sales, Mobilink.
The Lumia 920 is still Nokia’s flagship smartphone, but word is that the Finnish company plans to replace it soon with a better device that will be unveiled later this month at Mobile World Congress 2013, in Barcelona, Spain.
For those who cannot afford Nokia’s flagship handset, but do not want to make any compromises when it comes to features, the Lumia 820 is the perfect choice.
Both Lumia 920 and 820 are equipped with 1.5 GHz dual-core CPUs and pack 1GB of RAM. However, the former boasts a much better 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ ClearBlack display, whereas the latter features a slightly smaller 4.3-inch AMOLED display.
The Lumia 620
is the cheapest Windows Phone 8 handset launched by Nokia, but offers more than decent features. It comes with a 3.8-inch display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and 8GB of internal memory.
