Nokia Lumia 620 is the cheapest smartphone from Nokia that runs on Windows 8 Phone operating system. Lumia 620 is being targeted at the emerging markets of Asia. It was recently released in Thailand for 8,250 baht. The mobile handset is going to be released in the Indian markets in the second week of February, 2012. But unofficially it will be available in the markets from this weekend.

Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 are officially released in India for prices of Rs. 38,199 and 27,559 respectively. Lumia 920 is the premium phone that is giving tough competition to the likes of Samsung and Apple and is ready to increase its share in the Indian Smartphone market. Though both the phones in the Lumia series were promoted largely by the press before and after the launch of them in the Indian market, common buyer in India may not afford the smartphones because of the price. This is where Lumia 620 will come as a great option to the common buyer.

Lumia 620 will be the best opportunity for Nokia to attract the Indian common buyer by pricing the device competitively. Based on the price the device is being offered at Thailand, the price for which Lumia 620 will be available in India can be between Rs. 15,000 to 19,000.
