Nokia rolls out budget Lumia 620 smartphone


Nokia has launched its long-awaited Lumia 620 smartphone in the UK.
Possibly one of the cheapest Windows Phone 8 handsets on the market, the new device can be purchased for just £150 on pay-as-you-go at O2, while pay-monthly contracts will charge consumers a meagre sum of £18.50 every month.
Ideal for those looking for flashy features on a shoestring, the Lumia 620 is a budget phone, but it comes with 8GB of internal storage, a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 3.8-inch 480 by 800 display and a five-megapixel rear camera, while it is also enabled with Near Field Communications technology.
Launched yesterday (January 31st), Nokia’s latest handset comes with a range of interchangeable phone covers, so consumers can pick the colour that best suits them out of seven options.
It was also revealed by the Finnish phone maker that owners of its handsets running Windows Phone 7 have received an automatic Windows Phone 7.8 update.
This comes after Nokia recently reported it sold 4.4 million units of its Lumia 920 and 820 mobiles during the fourth quarter of 2012, up from 1.5 million in the previous three-month period.
