Nokia Lumia 720 Preview: A budget phone with a premium feel

Nokia moves to defend its emerging market turf with slew of budget phones

Nokia (NOK) decided to eschew the high-end smartphone market at Mobile World Congress this week to focus on a line of lower-cost phones aimed at defending its turf in emerging markets from the likes of Samsung (005930) and its REX feature phone series. The Finnish phone manufacturer on Monday announced four new phones: The Nokia Lumia 720 and 520 smartphones and the Nokia 301 and 105 feature phones. The Lumia 720 is the most high-end of all the devices with a 4.3-inch touch display with a resolution of  800 x 480 pixels, a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor and a 6.7-megapixel camera. The device is priced at $329 before carrier subsidies and will begin launching in Asia during the first quarter of 2013 before expanding to Europe in the second quarter. More →
