Nokia Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 get a price tag in Germany
The Nokia Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 are the company's latest mid-range Windows Phone 8 handsets, offering a rich array of features without costing an arm and a leg. Or at least that's what their maker tried to convince us at the smartphones' unveiling, which took place in Barcelona last month. 

At the event, a price tag of 140 euro was given for the Nokia Lumia 520 while the Lumia 720 was priced at about 250 euro. These figures, however, did not include tax, which explains why the smartphones will be a tad pricier in real life.

Nokia Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 get a price tag in Germany
Pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 520 and Nokia Lumia 720 are now being accepted in Germany. The former is priced at 199 euro (about $260) while the latter can be yours for 379 euro (about $495). Of course, that's without any long term commitment or carrier subsidy involved. Both can be had for as low as one euro after signing a contract with a local carrier.

No details have been given as to when the Nokia Lumia 720 and Lumia 520 will hit the shelves, but that should happen within the following weeks. Who's already thinking of getting one?

From 249 to 379 euros there is a lot of price gap. I won't be able to buy the Lumia 720 now.

You are considering the 620 price and 720 price, right? It's true, there's a big gap, but those prices are only upon release as they get cheaper one or two weeks after.
In expansys the 720 is at 359,99€ for pre-release.

380 € for Lumia 720 is to much. I hoped for price around 350€ or less. Look like i will have to buy Lumia 620 or any thing with droid on ;)

You can easily buy Lumia 820 for 340 € (EU distribution). :) Although 379 € for Lumia 720 is just a first price tag - so of course it's crazy.
