It has not even been a month since Nokia announced the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 at the Mobile World Congress, but Nokia India has already launched the Lumia 520 at an attractive price of around Rs. 10,500.
The company said it will give an exact price at the time of the phone’s launch, but we don’t expect it to be very different. Interestingly, Flipkart has already listed the phone for pre-order, at Rs. 10,499, and quotes a first week of April availability.
Nokia has also announced the Lumia 72o at MWC 2o13 also announced that the Lumia 720 will be launching in mid-April in India, but did not give approximate pricing. The 249 Euro MSRP the Lumia 720 carries means that it would cost little under Rs. 20,000 when launched.
