Nokia Lumia 520 pre-orders in India propel the phone to second place on Flipkart
Just the other day we told you that the low-end Nokia Lumia 520 had been made available for pre-orders in India. The country's version of online retailer Amazon, Flipkart, will let you reserve the phone for 10,499 Rupees ($197 USD). While it has been only a few days since the Windows Phone 8 powered model has been available for pre-order, already it is number 2 on Flipkart's list of best selling phones among the 96 handsets on its roster. The Nokia Lumia 520 trails the Samsung Galaxy Grand DUOS.

The Nokia Lumia 520 looks ready to soar in India

The Nokia Lumia 520 looks ready to soar in India

On Sunday, we told you how India's smartphone market soared 48% in 2012. More importantly for the Nokia Lumia 520, Windows Phone 8 had a 5.4% share of the Indian smartphone market in the fourth quarter, topping the percentage of the Indian smartphone market that belonged to the Apple iPhone. With the popularity of Microsoft's mobile platform in the country, and the affordability of the Nokia Lumia 520, the phone should do quite well in India.

The Nokia Lumia 520 is going to be available sometime in the first week of this month and yes, a variant of the phone is going to be available for T-Mobile as the Nokia Lumia 521. While there is no word on how T-Mobile is going to price the phone, it could go for free with a signed two-year pact.

The Nokia Lumia 520 represents excellent value for Indian smartphone consumers, and the stats prove WP8 has strong potential for growth, especially in developing nations...

I'm also waiting for Troll to post something stupid and irrelevant. My guess is that he'll post something very soon ;o)

Nokia is great.. no doubts in that but the problem is Windows phone 8 :(. The OS is new and it needs some time to stabilize.

WP8 is perfectly stable now: it only needs more apps, and those are starting to come...

Samsung's market share in India will fall in the coming years as Sony and micromax sell like hot cakes in India and Nokia is catching up with lumia 620 and 520.

I actually did quite a bit of research on these cell phone trade in programs, and smartphonecashin.com is definitely the highest paying site. They are also very straightforward and easy to use.
