Nokia announces the Lumia 620, its purpose is simple, affordability. Featuring a 3.8 inch clearBlack WVGA display with a modest 800 x 480 resolution, Qualcomm S4 1GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of storage (with SD card support) and a 5mp camera.

The Lumia 620 is no bread winner in the spec race, neither is it a show stopper in the design department. It sure does have those characteristic colors Nokia is becoming known for. Although not as attractive as the something like the Lumia 920, it isn’t the ugliest device I’ve seen.

So what’s the point? The Lumia 620 is set to be released in the Asia-pacific and Middle East markets with a price point of $250, that’s the point! Although I doubt we’ll see this device stateside, something like this from carriers would be completely free on contract. I think Nokia is doing a great job at capturing the middle to low end smartphone market.

  1. While Nokia can build flagship devices to compete with the best of them, the low end has always been their bread and butter.

    With SD card support I am thinking WP8 here. If so, that $250 price tag is a great achievement. Sort of reminds me of my Surround (or the Trophy). Just better, and cheaper.
