The Nokia India online store is announcing the coming availability of the low priced Nokia Lumia 520
in the region. While no set launch date was disclosed, U.K. retailer Clove already has posted an April 1st date when the phone will be launched in that area
. The word from Nokia Care is that the phone will be ready to ship sometime within the next two weeks
While pricing is not yet shown on the Nokia India site, Clove is selling the unit for 140 EUR ($180 USD). That would work out to a price under 10,000 INR and the Nokia Lumia 520 is expected to have some decent specs for a phone in its class. Let's start with the 4 inch, LCD, WVGA display. That works out to a 235ppi pixel density. Driving Miss Daisy is a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8227 processor with the Adreno 305 GPU handling graphics. The 512MB of RAM gives away the phone's status although the 8GB of native storage can be enhanced with a 64GB capacity microSD slot. The 5MP camera on back captures video in 720p at 30fps and a 1430mAh battery keeps the lights on. The phone will be available in five colors, Black, Yellow, Cyan, Red or White.
